Hello all and thank you in advance...first off I am
still a bit of a
newbie with FreeBSD (and *NIX in general) but am
learning more every
day = ) I hope I got this on the correct list but feel
free to point
me in the right direction if I did not
OK...here's the problem. I have an A7N8X board
(deluxe) and am trying
to use the nvidia driver with my GeForceFX. I've
(I tries 4.8 too but the 5.1 just seemed to flow
better with me) and
have ACPI turned off in my BIOS and in FBSD. However
no matter what I
do all I seem to be able to get when I start up X is
the nvidia logo.
I lose all keyboard function and thus have to do a
hard reboot. I have
been working on this particular little problem for a
number of weeks
now to no avail. I have searched any relevant docs I
(nvidia, handbook,XFree86 site, nforce2 site) to no
avail. I have
googles so much I have trouble remembering which
keyword combination I
used to get to a particular page. Basically I am
clueless on what to
try next. I have tried make setup with the
WITH_FREEBSD_AGP with agp
in the kernel, tried the WITH_FREEBSD_AGP with it not
in the kernel
but as a module, I have tried with no agp in kernel or
using the cards AGPGART. I have even tried
combinations between them.
I have compiled and recompiled with optimizations
CHFLAGS= -o -pipe) and without but nothing seems to
The only errors I am getting in my XFree86.0.log is a
warnings about some resolution I don't use anyway not
working with my
monitor and of course it not being able to verify AGP
usage when I am
using freebsd's agpgart. Other than that everything
looks peachy keen.
Everything works fine with "nv"
Looking back I probably would not have gotten such a
chipset if I had known I was going to be giving up
windows and moving
to something a little more fun = )...btw besides the
driver thing I am loving this OS.
oh yeah....if you need me to post my dmesg or config
file or log or
anything just let me know
