I wish I knew. I can't imagine it's hardware related beyond the NVidia
One thing I didn't mention is my loader.conf settings:
I don't think I really went to herculean lengths to get it right, I just
did what I assumed needed to be done based on a quick scan of the
readily available docs, aside from initially getting that AGP setting
wrong in the Xorg config of course.
When I initially built the drivers with AGP enabled, I was having
problems with the display. One screen would look like it was having a
psychotic break, while the other stayed blank. That may have been a
conflict between the two AGP drivers though.
Now that I'm a little more enlightened about it - being optomistic of
course - I think it would be ok to rebuild the drivers with the AGPGART
enabled, so long as I have the xorg config right. The pain in the neck
comes with rebuilding the kernel without the FreeBSD agp.ko.
I can't just put a line in loader.conf to tell the kernel to leave agp
off, can I? Something like 'agp_load="NO"'? It does have to be a
rebuild kernel doesn't it?
