nvidia.ko kernel panic after upgrade to 6.0

I have upgraded my two identical (same CPU and motherboard) machines
from FreeBSD 5.4 to 6.0 (cvs tag RELENG_6_0). Both of them have NVidia
video cards. One has a GeForce 4 MX 440 w/AGP8X and the other a GeForce

I upgraded the system as described in the handbook and after that I
rebuilt all the installed ports.

On the machine which has the GeForce 6600 everything works fine, but in
the other machine there are two problems. Strangely in the machine that
works fine the problem #1 happened only once.

1) The first time the module was built (after upgrading to 6.0) when X
started the system and screen frozen after 3 seconds. This didn't stop

2) After rebuilding the nvidia-driver port the system crashes (kernel
panic) when it tries to load the kernel module to complete the
installation of the port. It outputs the following messages (sometimes
one and sometimes the other), followed by some information and kernel
dump progress:

panic: softdep_setup_inomapdep: found inode

Fatal trap 18: integer divide fault while in kernel mode

The second error is the same as the one the working machine outputted
when I tried to load the 5.4 kernel module into the 6.0 kernel.

If I copy the nvidia module from the working machine, problem #2 gets
solved, but problem #1 happens.

What can I do?

If you need more information just ask.

Thanks and Best Regards,
