Default 1.0-9629 for FreeBSD i386 released

Release Highlights:

* Added initial support for GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap.

* Added new "Display Configuration" page in nvidia-settings.

* Improved workstation OpenGL performance in Xinerama.

* Improved X driver error recovery.

* Improved workstation overlay performance.

* Fixed DFP scaling support.

* Added support for OpenGL 2.1.

* Added new "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder" X configuration option to
control the order of display devices when in TwinView.

* Fixed some problems related to TV Out.

* Added new NVIDIA logo artwork to nvidia-settings and X driver splashscreen; the X driver splashscreen can now be configured with the new "LogoPath" X configuration option.

The 1.0-9629 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-i386 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 1.0-9629 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 1.0-9629 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.
