Thanks for your feedback. But I'm running 8-CURRENT and it seems that
the drivers at http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html (the latest
version is 180.51 there) doesn not support -CURRENT and the kmod of the
version in the port /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver (180.44) let X create a
confi file fine with X -configure but if you launch X with the created
config file it hardlocks the system.

People who hate Microsoft Windows use Linux but people who love UNIX use FreeBSD.
