1.0-9755 ln error
I'm trying for the first time to install a nVidia driver in my 6.2-RELEASE. Installed compat5x, checked chipset compatibility, downloaded the 1.0-9755 tarball, untared it, but make fails early:

/pas/nVidia/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-9755# make install
===> src (install)
@ -> /usr/src/sys
ln: @: Operation not supported
*** Error code 1

Stop in /pas/nVidia/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-9755/src.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /pas/nVidia/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-9755.

Anyone could help?

Re: 1.0-9755 ln error
The NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver does not attempt to create this symlink itself, the FreeBSD Makefiles involved in building the kernel module do. Is the `ld` binary in your PATH the standard FreeBSD `ld`?

For what it's worth, I attach a more detailed output.

BTW, couldn't send every output to the file, neither redirecting nor piping: some lines always managed to go to the screen -- if anyone can advise on this, I would collect and post a more comprehensive output file.

Re: 1.0-9755 ln error
Problem solved. I was working on a msdosfs unit. Once moved to ufs, got no more ln errors.

Now I have other problems, but will search a little before posting.

Well, thanks Ernest!
