Default AGP driver seems to have done it

If you're going to wait for a new release from nVidia, you might be in for a long wait :-) And besides, if _two_ people suggest that you should just try typing

% X

at the command prompt and see what happens, I think it would make sense to just try it!

Oh well, I seem to have solved my problem by using the FreeBSD AGP driver instead of the nVidia AGP driver, as described in the README of the driver:

In /boot/loader.conf:

In XF86Config:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Ti4200"
Driver "nvidia"
VideoRam 131072
Option "NvAgp" "2"

This works for me. Of course, I have no explanation for why the nVidia AGP driver worked in FreeBSD 4.7 but fails in 4.8.
