Default New Nvidia Driver In Freebsd And Games

i was able to get tribes2 to run under freebsd 4.7-release
all i had to do was a kernel recompile and downgrade to linux_base-6.1
linux_base-7.1.1 did not work for any game that i have tried

to recompile kernel:
cp GENERIC MYKERNEL && vi /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/MYKERNEL
then add: options USER_LDT
save it and quit vi, then
cd /usr/src && make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL &&
make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
reboot and edit ur XF86Config file(/etc/X11/XF86Config)

then remove linux_base 7.1
pkg_delete linux_base-7.1_1 or something, check pkg_info | grep linux_base
and pkg_add ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/po...base-6.1_3.tgz

thats what worked for me, before i updated linux_base, games were segfaulting right after the splash screen loaded
now my system reboots itself sometimes when i exit tribes or play with sound

read the handbook for everything else

The Linux ABI compatibility libraries shipped with the FreeBSD driver package currently need to be forced into single-threaded mode to work; this will be addressed properly in the future, but for the moment you will need to set the __GL_SINGLE_THREADED environment variable to 1 in order to be able to play Linux games such as Tribes2.

These linux threads are very mysterious.
