Re: 1.0-8174 for FreeBSD i386 released
devfs was enabled.
The device named actually existed in /dev, and I made sure I had rw access to it. Attempting to cat the device returned a "Device not configured" message instead of the expected "Operation not supported by device"
I even made sure the nvidia module was loaded by the kernel and saw the nvidia0 device probe line in dmesg.
It was a 5.4-STABLE release though, not -RELEASE. I can't tell you the date unfortunatly, it was at least a month or two old.
