Default Why isn't -CURRENT supported with FreeBSD-NVidia-Driver ?

Does that mean that it won't work with
-CURRENT ?

Works here (GF4 Ti4200).

I am rebuilding world to hopefully fix the __sF thing, then I can actually use the GL libraries

To sum the previous replies up, it is possible to disable the -CURRENT #error check in nv-freebsd.h to make the kernel module build and recent versions of the C library in -CURRENT have reverted the change that made __sF static. With those changes the drivers should work fine on -CURRENT; there have been reports from people who could not make the drivers work on -CURRENT, however, even though they worked with -STABLE on the same machine. That said, running with -CURRENT is a bit of a gamble, which shouldn't come as a surprise considering it's under active development and not yet intended for general use.

They don't support it for the same reasons they don't support Linux 2.5.x, they don't want to be wasting time tracking a moving target.
