Oh, certainly, I thought I said, it's showing up in kldload. The only
things that are wrong are the non-appearance of the /dev/nvidiactl, xorg
not starting up, and the only EE lines in Xorg.0.log are these:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module! Please ensure
(EE) NVIDIA(0): that there is a supported NVIDIA GPU in this system, and
(EE) NVIDIA(0): that the NVIDIA device files have been created properly.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Please consult the NVIDIA README for details.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
You know what just occured to me? Maybe the 8600GTS isn't being caught in
the pci scan. Anyone out there with a Nvidia8600GTS, could you give me
your entire scanpci run?
