Hello,

Sorry i don,'t speak very well English.

Hello,

It work fine !!!

I have download

ftp://download.nvidia.com/freebsd/96...6.43.16.tar.gz

I have edit nv-freebsd.h and removed:

Code:

#if __FreeBSD_version >= 800000
#error This driver does not support FreeBSD 8.x/-CURRENT!
#endif
#if __FreeBSD_version >= 700000 && __FreeBSD_version < 700055
#error This driver does not support FreeBSD 7.x/-CURRENT!
#endif
#if __FreeBSD_version >= 600000 && __FreeBSD_version < 600034
#error This driver does not support FreeBSD 6.x/-CURRENT!
#endif
#if __FreeBSD_version < 503000
#error This driver requires FreeBSD 5.3 or later!
#endif

I have edit nvidia_s_registry.c and change 1 to 0 at line

Code:

static uint32_t NVreg_SoftEDIDs = 0;
And ~0 to 1 at line

Code:

static uint32_t NVreg_Mobile = 1;
For Dell laptops look at : ftp://download.nvidia.com/freebsd/96...ppendix-k.html

I have compiled and installed this driver

Code:

make
make install

After i have edited xorg.conf and add

Code:

Load        "glx"
at Section "Module" and change nv to nvidia at line:

Code:

Driver        "nvidia"
in Section "Device".

I have reboot and it's work !!!

Best Regards
