Your response is of no use since it does not apply to the question. If you need further information regarding incompatibilities between nVidia 64 bit drivers and 64 bit FreeBSD, Google for it. There was even a lengthy discussion on this topic on this very forum awhile ago. It would be nice if this incompatibility issue could be resolved by FreeBSD-8 since it apparently is not going to be resolved in the present 7.x branch. Personally, with more and more PCs being sold with 64 bit architecture, and nVidea being a major player in the video card market, FreeBSD's inability to support nVidia 64 bit drivers is seriously detrimental to the overall usefullness of the OS and certainly will not help it capture a larger share of the market. -- Jerry ges...@yahoo.com Bare feet magnetize sharp metal objects so they point upward from the floor -- especially in the dark.
