Default Re: Newbie display driver install problems

You do know that the driver is in ports right?

Let's do a little review, taken from the handbook, you can search for ports, or packages with the whereis command.

whereis package_name

Also you can search in the top directory of the ports tree.

cd /usr/ports

make search name=nvidia

This should turn up all the ports with nvidia in the name.

Then just cd into the proper directory in your case /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver.

Read the pkg-message, or the top of the make file for compile options using cat. Then type make install clean, and all you have to do is change your xorg, or xfree config file your done.
