These are the installed packages relating to nvidia:

[root at vhost01 ~ (master)]# pkg info -x drm

[root at vhost01 ~ (master)]# pkg info -x nvidia

This is what I have in rc.conf:

kld_list="cuse fuse linux nvidia nvidia-modeset"

This is everything from dmesg that I can identify as being related to nvidia or

I have two Ancore Communiucations Inc. 23" monitors that previously ran at 1920
x 1080, 60 Hz.  One of these is presently attached to the DVI port of the
Nvidia card.  It is considered unknow by mate and reporta a resolution of 1024
x 768 but the display looks more like 800 x 600.

What are the next steps to get this thing recognized.
