@disenter:

the driver isn't working for u, because your gpu isn't supported, i think - it's not u're using the RELEASE version.
btw. which gpu is on your gfxcard? did you build the driver directly or via the ports tree? is your system crashing or does x not start up?

gpu not supported?.. but its just a GF4 Ti4400 and its in the 'standard' card list for the installation of the OS itself, so why would the 'true' nvidia driver not support it ? ...
the driver was installed using nvidia's own installer... compiled, installed and kldload'd itself fine.. but as i siad, if i modify XF86Config to suit that driver, eg change "nv" to "nvidia", X crashes if i try and 'startx'.
the rest of the required fields for XF86Config are present, the kernel components are present also, since USER_LDT is permanently on in that, and SYSVSHM or whatever is there by default... so i didn't have to modify the kernel for that.. the kernel is basically just a generic with soundblaster support and firewall support added...
*shrugs*

ah i just double checked, the graphics chip is supported!.. please refer to appendix a of the Linux driver set readme file, as directed by the Freebsd driver set readme.

GeForce4 Ti 4400 0x0251

is what was listed...for my card.

*sigh* so back to the original question... whats different in a -RELEASE version to a -CURRENT or -STABLE version... if they supported -RELEASE as well, why would they not just say ALL versions of FreeBSD after 4.x etc?..

Cheers

>Says the chipset is not for this driver as a warning
so, maybe this error means, that your motherboard chipset isn't supportef?!
which agp driver do you use?
i had crashes with the nvidia one, so i use the freebsd agpgart driver.
so the crashes are more rarely, but still present

Hi,

I recently upgraded my FreeBSD to 5.2-current, and I recompiled the Nvidia driver, however whenever I try load the module I get these 2 messages:

Quote:
WARNING: Device driver "nvidia" has wrong version and is disabled. Recompile KLD module.
WARNING: Device driver "nvidiatcl" has wrong version and is disabled. Recompile KLD module.
Of course I tried recompiling it a couple of times, but without luck.
Yes I know in the README it says -CURRENT is not supported, but this looks like a fixable problem.

Can anyone shed some light?

Does anyone know when the next release of the nvidia drivers for freebsd will occur?
I posted a problem I'm having with a dual dvi setup and I haven't received any responses.
(http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=26478)
I'd like to make sure this bug gets addressed, but I can't seem to find anyone who is listening.

Arrow Re: Official FreeBSD drivers!

hi there,
i'm using freebsd 5.1 and encountered the same probs
with nforce2-board and nvidia graphic card.
in my opinion the graphic-driver recognizes first the
nforce2-chipset ( thats why it says it does not rec. your gpu @ disenter)
and so the module is not loaded.
ugly bug-fix:

write "kldload nvidia" at the last line in your rc.conf
and it should work!!!
(with 1 or 2 error-messages)

this is a fine example of - software-engineering!!!
hope some folks of nvidia-crew takes care of this...

so long...

FWIW, this particular issue can easily be resolved in the driver's probe routine (nvidia_pci.c), I believe the ports/ version includes such a fix.
