nVidia On FreeBSD-7-Current
I'm going to do a reinstall and install FBSD-7-BETA2 fresh.

Will I have any problems with nVidia drivers on 7-current? After the Xorg upgrade/7.3 I downloaded the driver and did a manual install on 6x-stable, will this same process work with 7-current?

Re: nVidia On FreeBSD-7-Current
The NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver is not supported on FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT, but can be made to work; please see e.g. http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=100280 for more information. Also, there's a known stability problem affecting SMP systems that may be more pronounced on FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT; please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=99604 for details.

I'm running 7.0-BETA2 with the latest stable drivers installed via ports and it is working fine. Had no problems installing it either...

Re: nVidia On FreeBSD-7-Current
In installed 7.0-BETA2 on one of my systems yesterday and kicked off an Xorg ports/ build. I'll double-check whether there are out-of-the-box installation problems (aside from the 7.0-CURRENT check) and fix the sign comparison warnings (just in case).

Installed latest drivers from ports ... starting Xorg and see this:
XIO: fatal IO error 53 (Software caused connection abort) ... after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining

Re: nVidia On FreeBSD-7-Current
Are you seeing any other errors?

Google found a similar, not nVidia related report here.
