Default FreeBSD nvidia driver issue


I'm having some issues with the nvidia driver for freebsd. I install the driver trough the ports system .

phobos# cd /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver/
phobos# make install

Eveything install fine except the make setup that seems to be broken.

phobos# pkg_info | grep nvidia
nvidia-driver-1.0.4365_2 NVidia graphics card binary drivers for hardware OpenGL ren
phobos# cd work/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365
phobos# make setup
===> module
"Makefile", line 17: Malformed conditional (${OSVERSION} > 500011)
"Makefile", line 17: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 19: if-less endif
"Makefile", line 19: Need an operator
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver/work/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365.

Bu the make setup is option i think.

phobos# kldload nvidia
Jul 18 07:03:17 phobos kernel: nvidia0: <GeForce2 MX/MX 400> mem 0xd0000000-0xd7ffffff,0xde000000-0xdeffffff irq 4 at device 0.0 on pci1
# kldstat
Id Refs Address Size Name
1 3 0xc0400000 65a558 kernel
2 1 0xc4711000 187000 nvidia.ko
phobos# kldunload nvidia
Jul 18 07:04:09 phobos kernel: nvidia0: detached
phobos# kldstat
Id Refs Address Size Name
1 1 0xc0400000 65a558 kernel

All fine till here (except for the make setup).
I setup X and gnome and it works fine with the default nv driver. When I switch to the nvidia driver my XFreeConfig is equal to the default one, I only change the nv driver to nvidia and i take out dri, record and xtrap from the Secton "Module".
Here is the sections:
Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "glx"
Load "speedo"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"

Section "Device"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400]"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

The rest of the config is the default.
When I startx I don't see any output it just leads me to a screen full of crazy characters and symbols and I can't get out (Ctrl^c, ctrl+alt+backspace) until it shuts down the machine. It seems like there is some sort of problem somewhere and I can't find it. I had this machine as my freebsd desktop with freebsd 5.2.1-releasep9 for almost a month and it worked just fine with nvidia driver but then i had to reinstall everything coz i only had 6GB space for freebsd and I installed everything in a new disk. I have more than one freebsd desktop and they all run with nvidia driver, never had a problem and now this is bugging me like hell!

If anyone knows anything on this please post.

It has an onboard card but it's not being used.

Thanks for your help and thanks for reading my thread!


PS: For the sake of hard trying I edited the Makefile from the modules area and fixed the condition. But the problem still persists!
