Please forward this message to the maintainer of the port x11/nvidia-driver.
NVIDIA's X11 driver needs much shared memory.
If kernel cannot provide enough shared memory to nvidia-driver and other
programs(e.g. Apache 2.2+PHP5) simultaneously, Xorg will freeze with NVIDIA's
logo on screen.
This problem has troubled many FreeBSD+NVIDIA users.
Related prompt should be added to post-install message of the port
If Xorg cannot start and reports
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to obtain a shared memory identifier.
in /var/log/Xorg.0.log while actually you have enabled "options SYSVSHM" in
kernel, the sysctl "kern.ipc.shmall" should be increased.
