I tried non-legacy drivers before 100.14.11 with my GeForce 6200 at the office and they did not work. This card is a TurboCache(TM). Could that be the reason?

I am out of office for some days. In the mid of next week I will try 100.14.11 on GeForce 6200 TurboCache and write about it.

@zander: You are right. Today I tried version 100.14.11 with GeForce 6200 TurboCache on FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT and it works! I do not need legacy drivers any more.

On July 12th I updated to newest FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT and from this day on the driver fails with my GeForce 6200 TurboCache, so I deinstalled it. If any information is needed, I can try it once more and send error reports ...


Because there is actually no FreeBSD port for version 100.14.11 I had to make four changes before I had been able to install:

1. set environment variable 'X11BASE' to '/usr/local'

2. Delete lines 24-26 in 'src/nv-freebsd.h' (test for FreeBSD version >=70000)

3. Change '${X11BASE}/lib/modules[...]' to '${X11BASE}/lib/xorg/modules[...]' in Makefiles under x11/[driver,extension,lib]

4. Change '/usr/X11R6/lib/modules[...]' to '/usr/local/lib/xorg/modules[...]' in 'doc/html/appendix-b.html'


Thanks for your hints,
Rainer

@rhurlin: did you mean June 12th? How does the driver fail, exactly?

Got it working, Xorg 7.2 & FreeBSD 6-Stable.
It's great and that's why I love Green more than Red: FreeBSD native dirver...

@zander: Sorry, next mistype. Of course I meant June 12th.

I deinstalled version 100.14.11 and tried 1.0-9631 on FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT again. With GeForce 6200 TurboCache the driver worked as expected. Only if I wanted to change to console or quit xorg the whole system hangs. I had to do a cold start off my system. There are no entries in log files etc.

I think this behaviour was described before in other threads by several people.

@rhurlin: OK. I assume this problem also reproduces with 1.0-9639?

How Do I have to change the Makefile(s) to install the driver on ... (see topic)?

There was an answer saying there was a thread concerning this issue but I couldn't find it ... ?

Thanks,
