Default Re: x11/nvidia-driver does not compile on current

Thank you for the hint, zander@. I tried it and changed all places from minor() to dev2unit() in the files src/nvidia_dev.c and src/nvidia_subr.c. It compiled and installed fine!

After that I had to change back the link /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/ from to,1. Now I can run nvidia-driver again with newest xorg-server. I also tested some 3D apps like astro/celestia.

Is it possible to incorporate changes for FreeBSD CURRENT in the next driver version?

Thank you again,
