hi there,

NVIDIA's closed source driver for FBSD comes with the original linux libaries
in order to run linux 3d apps/games under FBSD. unfortunately the libraries
won't work with linuxulator 2.6.16. using linuxulator 2.4.2 they do. the
problem seems to be futex related, but applying the futex patches for -CURRENT
doesn't solve the issue.

there's a discussion about the problem on the -CURRENT mailinglist:

also there's a PR with some linux_kdumps here:
