Thank you very much for your detailed instruction. I was able to get
all of the sources and built nvidia driver successfully :)
However, when I run kldload nvidia, I get a mismatch with the running
kernel and an incompatible ?????. I cannot post exact error as the
machine gives me no X :(, I checked to see if enabling hald and dbus
at /etc/rc.conf would make a difference and they have not :(, I have
also tried nouveau and it also does not work. No working X on FreeBSD
9.0 BETA 2 amd64, ports updated to latest, xorg, xorg-server, xfce4,
... I will post in the thread I created on this issue.
