Zander, any news on this? We are about ready to release PC-BSD 1.4 here, and now the NVIDIA driver is broken

Maybe the best fix is to buy an ATI card now that it's drivers are open source !

Nvidia has not released any driver update in 4 months !!

I expect an updated set of NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver releases (100.14.xx and legacy) with Xorg 7.3 compatibility to become available very soon. In the meantime, you can use the -ignoreABI option and use older drivers if you don't use COMPOSITE.

So the unofficial word is that -ignoreABI is fine as long as you don't use the COMPOSITE extension?

mmm
on FreeBSD CURRENT if i launch glxgear or some opengl application, my motherboard start beeping and system freeze.
IgnoreABI is on.
(Mobo A8N Sli Premium - Geffo 7800 GXT)

If i use nv driver instead of nvidia no probs.

On FreeBSD 6.2 looklike no problem but of course i cannot use Composite and have to ignoreABI.

So:
1 - I always use Composite and spent a lot of money for that Geffo :d
2 - I cannot play wine games anymore like that and i want use opengl for many many other apps.

I know "i break balls" as we say in Italy but some infos to know about new driver fix date release will be nice.


Thanks & Regards

Zander, it's good to hear that updated drivers for Xorg 7.3 are forthcoming. With that being said, several weeks have past since you made the announcement and it would be nice to get a feel for how far out they really are (days, weeks, months?)

Thanks again.
