Hello out there.

Days ago I migrated my lab's box from FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE to 
7.0-CURRENT/i386 due to my ZFS-desires.
Before the migration, I used successfully Xorg 7.2 and some very usefull 
tools for astronomers, like 'Stellarium'.

Today I tried to install Stellarium out of the ports, the compile 
process succeeded but I receive this error after trying to start the

Error: Couldn't set 1024x768 video mode: X11 driver not configured with 
LDD result is shown as follows, but very useless, I guess.

My video card is an older ELSA GLADIAC with an older nVidia FX4500 
chipset, I guess. But that doen't matter due to the fact prior to the 
switch to FreeBSD 7.0 I hadn't any problems with OpenGL.

ldd /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nv_drv.so
         libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x2807d000)

Sorry, the list may be wrong, but I hope there will be someone out here 
also ran into that problem and has hopefully solutions or tips handy.

Thanks in advance,
