FreeBSD 5.0 ?? yeah right..
Just wondering about these people that claim to have gotten this working on FreeBSD 5.0

No matter what i do the current driver refuses to compile with the following error.. I have tried all the stupid "fixes" and none of them change this.

Any ETA before my machine stops collecting dust ? Some of us have work to do :rolleyes:

We hope to release a new driver soon that will support FreeBSD 5.0.

Have you checked the ports?

look under /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver

There are two defines in the makefile that you wana check out, WITH_FREEBSD_AGP and WITHOUT_LINUX.

I didn't get the agp stuff in nvidia's driver to work so i had to use WITH_FREEBSD_AGP=yes, so i can recommend you to use that define. I'm also not intrested in linux stuff so i also used the other define (WITHOUT_LINUX=yes).

Note(!!): Even if you define WITHOUT_LINUX you will have dependency to linux.ko. To get rid of that you'll need to edit nv-freebsd.h and remove the line: "#define NV_SUPPORT_LINUX_COMPAT 1".

This is how i did it:
cd /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver

*** edit nv-freebsd.h as described above ***
