    I am using pcbsd and trying to install nvidia drivers. I got

    /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver

    make install clean


    and get the following error:

    nvidia-driver-180.60 needs an X server implementation installed.

    I am not too sure what to do here.

    You need to have Xorg installed to make use of that driver. Not sure how PC-BSD does that but I thought it installed KDE by default. This means Xorg should be there too.

    Nothing was different when I went through Runports(root)

    Can't help you with the PC-BSD specifics as I don't run PC-BSD myself.

    Maybe have a go at the PC-BSD forums?

    In PCBSD the nvidia driver installation files are somewhere under /PCBSD/foo/bar
