I was looking at the graphics wiki for freebsd and saw an entry concerning
xorg-server 1.18. It says that Nvidia drivers don't support xorg server

Nvidia has just released driver versions 352.63, 340.96 and 358.16 for
FreeBSD which included ABI 20 support for xorg-server 1.18. I built xorg
server 1.18 and the Nvidia driver version 352.63. Both seem to be running
with no problems so far. I'm using xorg-server with the most recent build
of KDE4 from ports. I am able to run flash through pipelight with
firefox-esr with no issues at all.

Thanks guys for all your hard work,

Jeremy Cox
