As the nvidia kernel module is part of a port/package, I suspect that this is more of a "ports" issue than a "stable" issue; in particular, if the version of the nvidia-driver you're using is sufficiently recent, you may find a recent ports/UPDATING entry relevant: 20160829: AFFECTS: users of x11/nvidia-driver AUTHOR: c...@freebsd.org The NVidia driver has been updated to version 367.35. Starting with version 358.09, new kernel module was added, nvidia-modeset.ko. This new driver component works in conjunction with the nvidia.ko kernel module to program the display engine of the GPU. Users that experience hangs when starting X11 server, or observe (II) NVIDIA(0): Validated MetaModes: (II) NVIDIA(0): "NULL" messages in their /var/log/Xorg.0.log file should replace ``nvidia'' with ``nvidia-modeset'' in /boot/loader.conf or /etc/rc.conf files, depending on how they prefer to load NVidia driver kernel module.
