Re: Can't load kernel module(nvidia.ko) on 8.0R
I have seen this behaviour several times before. For me the following steps did work:
1. Completely deleting the nvidia-driver, e.g. pkg_delete nvidia-driver
2. Compiling of original xorg ports: portupgrade -f libGL libGLU libglut
3. Then installing the nvidia driver again
Afterwards the module should be loaded, see kldstat ...
Loading the driver with kldload does not work for me.
Hope this helps.
