Default 1.0-8756 for FreeBSD i386 released

Release Highlights:

* Added support for GeForce 7300, GeForce 7400, GeForce
7600 and GeForce 7900.

* Added support for running OpenGL applications while the
Composite X extension is enabled; see "The X Composite
Extension" appendix for details.

* Enabled hardware acceleration of the Render X extension
by default.

* Added "AddARGBGLXVisuals" X configuration option, so that
OpenGL applications can render to X Windows' alpha channel.

* Added new "nvidia-auto-select" mode entry for use in the
X configuration file; see description in the "Programming
Modes" appendix.

* Added support for GLX 1.4.

* Added ability for OpenGL applications to span greater
than 4096 pixels when in Xinerama.

* Improved G-Sync support.

* Fixed interlaced modes on CRTs.

The 1.0-8756 NVIDIA Accelerated FreeBSD Graphics Driver Set for FreeBSD/i386 is available for download via HTTP and FTP.


If you are using FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE or a more recent FreeBSD 6.x release, please make sure that the compat5x package is installed.

Note that the gtk-2.x ports package(s) shipped with FreeBSD releases > 5.3-RELEASE are binary incompatible with those shipped with FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE; due to this, the `nvidia-settings` binary shipped with 1.0-8756 will not work on FreeBSD > 5.3-RELEASE. This problem can be solved by (re-)building `nvidia-settings` from source:

# fetch ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/nv...ngs-1.0.tar.gz
# tar zxf nvidia-settings-1.0.tar.gz
# cd nvidia-settings-1.0
# gmake
# install nvidia-settings /usr/X11R6/bin
Please note: If you encounter any problems with the 1.0-8756 NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver release, please start a new thread and include a detailed description of the problem, reproduction steps and any relevant log files.

I submitted a PR (ports/96385) to update the port to this version.
