Default 1.0-8174 for FreeBSD i386 released

Release Highlights:

* Added support for new GPUs such as the GeForce 6100 and GeForce 6150.

* Added a new utility 'nvidia-xconfig', which is a commandline
tool for updating X configuration files.

* Added manpages for 'nvidia-xconfig', 'nvidia-settings', and

* Made UseEdidFreqs "on" by default; the NVIDIA X driver will
use the valid HorizSync and VertRefresh frequency ranges from the
EDID whenever possible.

* Added support for Stereo Digital Flat Panels such as the SeeReal
and Sharp3D DFPs.

* Added HTML version of the README.

* Added support for static Rotation; see the "Rotate" X config option
in the README.
The 1.0-8174 NVIDIA Accelerated FreeBSD Graphics Driver Set for FreeBSD/i386 is available for download via HTTP and FTP.

If you are using FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE or a more recent FreeBSD 6.x release, please make sure that the compat5x package is installed.

Note that the gtk-2.x ports package(s) shipped with FreeBSD releases > 5.3-RELEASE are binary incompatible with those shipped with FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE; due to this, the `nvidia-settings` binary shipped with 1.0-8174 will not work on FreeBSD > 5.3-RELEASE. This problem can be solved by (re-)building `nvidia-settings` from source:

# fetch
# tar zxf nvidia-settings-1.0.tar.gz
# cd nvidia-settings-1.0
# gmake
# install nvidia-settings /usr/X11R6/bin
