Trying to use NVIDIA drivers
1 Attachment(s)

I'm getting the following :

NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x25:0xffffffff:1039)

It also claims issues with my /dev/n* stuff, but it looks ok :

crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 240, 0 Oct 8 17:32 /dev/nvidia0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 239, 255 Oct 8 17:32 /dev/nvidiactl

I'm running nvidia-driver-1.0.9639 out of ports, XOrg 7.2, and FreeBSD 5.5

Thanks, Tuc

Re: Trying to use NVIDIA drivers
You need to go the nvidia web site and download the nvidia driver.
I've used the latest one (100.14.19) for freeBSD.

I have one pc and and one laptop with freeBSD 6.2 RC2 without any problem. Both has ATI card on it. I have an HP laptop with 2 Duo Core that has nvidia card. Download the nvidia driver, reboot, and run nvidia-xconfig. But you need to install compat5x prior to installing your nvidia driver.
