Thus spake David Gurvich (david.gurvich at verizon.net) [25/06/04 19:57]:
: Cannot seem to use nvidia-driver with xorg.  Errors are 2.
: 1)"NVRM: failed to copy vbios to system memory"
: 2)"nvidia0: rm_init_adapter() failed"
: The nv driver works with no problem, and the nvidia-driver works with 
: XFree86.
: FreeBSD 5.2.1 20040222 with cvsup ports tree.  A7N266-VM motherboard, 
: nforce1 chipset, realtek 8201 lan.
: Enabling SMP in kernel forces disabling of ACPI.  Removing both SMP and 
: APIC from kernel allows enabling of ACPI.
: Having SMP in kernel and disabling APIC doesn't work.  Later snapshots, 
: i.e. 20040524, I have been unable to gain stable state.

FWIW, I'm running 5.2-CURRENT 20040624 with SMP, ACPI, xorg, and
nvidia-driver right now, without any troubles.  glxgears gives me,
apparently, a core dump when using KSE, and about 1640FPS otherwise.
