Default 1.0-8762 for FreeBSD i386 released

Release Highlights:

* Added support for new GPUs, such as QuadroFX 4500 X2, Quadro
FX 5500, Quadro FX 3500, and Quadro FX 1500.

* Improved Quadro FX 3450/4000 SDI support.

* Fixed video memory reporting with GeForce 6200 Turbo Cache.

* Fixed a problem with Overlay support when in TwinView.

* Fixed several issues with mode selection for CRTs and DFPs.

* Fixed a corruption problem with Rotation and large desktops on
older GPUs, including GeForce4 MX.

* Fixed a system crash starting X with TwinView on certain GPUs.

* Addressed an NV-CONTROL compatibility issue; please see the
Known Issues section of the README for details.

The 1.0-8762 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 downloaded it and it seems to be working fine although I haven't really pushed it. I'm trying to download the BRL-CAD port--that should push it.

What about the driver for the FreeBSD's amd64 platform ? We are waiting for almost 2 years for that driver.
