Hi! I have a RIVA TNT2 M64 graphics card and I have just updated to FreeBSD-4.8-STABLE, recompiled the kernel and the system, and then installed the last Nvidia freebsd drivers but it doesn't work.

My computer reboots when I try to run X.
I have the same problem with the latest 4365 driver. I tried to install from the ports and from the tar ball but each and everytime, the computer reboot. I have a 4.8 Stable with the latest X, compiled the kernel with USER_LDP. My card is an old GeForce 256 with 32 megs ram, (so nothing fancy nowadays) ASUS A7PRO mobo with a 800Mhz Duron and 512meg. The monitor is a ViewSonic E790. This is my XF86Config :
