I already tried that and it doesn't like 5.3 version either. I guess 5.3 had too many changes that 4365 driver breaks during installation. I wish I could revert back to 5.2.1 which it works great. However, updating the ports to the latest stuff which including XFree86 4.4.0 will break the nvidia driver. This is little bit frustrating since I bought this laptop less than a month ago to use it for OpenGL programming. I'm still stuck with my old laptop since it works great but this... I dunno.
The only complaint is I have is that the nvidia driver for FreeBSD is buggy and long wait before next release. They need to have something like a beta driver that's updated very often so we can test them out and let nvidia team know.
