I've searched a while the FreeBSD forum of the nvidia driver at
and learned that the lock is caused by the huge amount of memory my
laptop has (4 GByte) and one needs a setting in /boot/loader.conf of
with this all is fine and X comes up as it should.
The actual version is 180.60 and does not compile on CURRENT. One must
disable the check for this version in
#if __FreeBSD_version >= 800000
#error This driver does not support FreeBSD 8.x/-CURRENT!
then it compiles and installs fine.
As well the nvidia-settings must be compiled directly from the source
because the one in the ports has some library conflict.
Thanks for your hint again

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