Hello all (both addresses appear on freshports),

I'm running PC-BSD (for all practical purposes it's KDE (all ports 
updated) on FreeBSD) and updated my xorg-server last night to 6.9.0_5.

Very strange happenings now. Screen gets scrambled when OpenGL screen 
save initializes and apparently kills X. Right clicking on the desktop 
and going to 'Configure Desktop', unchecking the 'Start Automatically' 
in the screen saver and then clicking the 'Apply' button does the same 
thing. I see the tty0 text with garbage beneath it. Sometimes it 
responds to keyboard and I can not 'startx' but can 'reboot now', 
sometimes it doesn't and I have to hard boot it. I also updated 
xorg-edit too. I'm running an nVidia 6200SE 256mb with nVidia's driver 

I know that nVidia just released a 1.0-8774 driver but don't know if 
that will help. I guess my question to you is where can I find a link to 
the previous source or package of xorg-server?

Thank you and if you need any more information, please ask.
