Default FreeBSD 5.5, Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module


I'm running 5.5 and I get an error when trying to start X.

NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidiactl (No such file or directory).
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module! Please ensure
(EE) NVIDIA(0): that there is a supported NVIDIA GPU in this system, and
(EE) NVIDIA(0): that the NVIDIA device files have been created properly.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Please consult the NVIDIA README for details.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***

However when I load the nvidia.ko module it reports:
nvidia0: <GeForce4 MX 420> mem 0xf3800000-0xf387ffff,0xf4000000-0xf7ffffff,0xf2000000-0xf2ffffff irq 16 at device 0.0 on pci1

I'm running, Xorg server 6.9.0 revision 5.

Why isn't the device file created?
