Have you recompiled your kernel at all recently? Are you indeed installing from the ports or not ? A while back, the NVIDIA drivers wouldn't install on 8 without the port as they did a version check that was disabled as part of the ports.
Nejdl, thank you for your reply.
I don't recompile the kernel of 8.0R.
I use original GENERIC kernel of 8.0R.
And I update ports tree every day( I perform portsnap command).
I use latest ports version.
In the case of installing other version of nvidia driver(such as 190.xx or 195.xx),
I have edited nv-freebsd.h by text editor(I removed version check part).
I have performed following work.
mypc# pkg_info -Ix nvidia
nvidia-driver-185.18.36 NVidia graphics card binary drivers for hardware OpenGL
mypc# ls -la /boot/modules/
