Default Re: Linux libraries are empty files in nvidia-driver-96.43.05

Just to be clear, I'm referring to release 96.43.07. The linux drivers in the official compressed tarball, NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-96.43.07.tar.gz, are empty files. I downloaded the corresponding Linux version, NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.07-pkg1.run, extracted it and copied the drivers over to obj/linux and installed. Everything works fine now.

To reiterate, this is 96.43.07 and the official compressed tarball for FreeBSD has empty linux driver files.

Thanks for the assistance. It is working now that I've grabbed the files from the Linux distribution.

Cheers,

Tom
