How to uninstall freebsd driver.
 
I would like to know if there is a script and/or easy method of completely uninstalling a freebsd driver set. I'm running freebsd 6.2 and xorg 7.2 and I'm having some issues. First I installed lastest ports, then I wanted to try latest driver (9755 at the time). So I deinstalled the ports, and manually installed 9755. Now yesterday I went to try to install 100.14.06, and It installed fine. But I get crashes and mismatch errors saying that I have kernel files still from 9755. I thought it was supposed to get cleanly upgraded, but obviously something happened. So I would like to try to remove the driver completely so I can try to install latest driver without issues. Thanks.

I'm a Linux guy so I'm not sure but have you run the NVIDIA installer with the --uninstall option?

What would that exact command be? I've tried a few.

make deinstall - didn't work
make uninstall - didn't work

./nvidia-installer.sh --uninstall

At least that's what it is in the Linux world...

Unfortunately, the FreeBSD package doesn't currently have an uninstall option; the 100.14.06 installation should've moved any conflicting files out of the way, though. What errors did you see, exactly? Can you generate an nvidia-bug-report.log file (via `nvidia-bug-report.sh`)?
