Default FreeBSD: startx problem

Hi all,

I have a problem with the nvidia driver. I have installed the x11/nvidia-driver port without problem. But when I try to run startx, strange caracters appears on all the screen.

Any ideas ?

Thanks

Try Option "NvAGP" "0" in the video card's section of XF86Config. That kind of errors seem to be cause by instability of the AGP bus.

always the same problem. Some stranges caracters appear. Sometimes, it's a caracter like a 'D' that is repeat. It can also be the mouse pointer ... really strange
