Hmmm.... sorry to be a little vague on what this means. As stated earlier in this thread, the basic NVIDIA driver seems to be loading, then failing or at least Xwindow/KDE is failing. By the "nvidia kernel" do you mean something that is loading in the FreeBSD kernel or separate from that? How would I investigate to find an answer for you?
Second, do you see any libglx* files in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions?
thanks again for helping with this.
