Default Re: Macpro 3.1 Nvidia 8800GT Freebsd 8.0 amd64 black screen

Same computer, card, cables and screens different OS (Mac Os X )works perfectly.

Different video card and same computer same cable, same screens works perfectly.

is only when I use the Nvidia card, and Freeebsd.

Actually I will try again the nv driver, because I'm not sure if I really test it or not( I did too many tests that day)( I was thinking on the ati driver).

I will get back to you.
