No, in the absence of a 64 bit driver from Nvidia you'd need to use the nv driver included in the xorg-drivers port. I had quite a struggle to get the nv driver to give me a 1280x1024 display. I'm running the i386 version of FreeBSD on a Foxconn 6150M2MA motherboard and couldn't get the GeForce 6150 to work with the 180.44 driver but it works fine with the x11/nvidia-driver-96 port which I use in preference to the nv driver. The lack of a 64bit Nvidia driver was one of the reasons I installed the i386 version of FreeBSD on this 64bit platform. -- Mike Clarke _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
