    Hi all,

    i just updated my freebsd FreeBSD box to 9.0 RELEASE and I tried to rebuild my NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86_64-290.10 device driver.

    Here my post on NVnews forum:

    http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=171974

    While waiting for new updated release any idea how to patch the current driver for FreeBSD 9.0?

    Ciao
    Roberto

    You could try modifying the nvidia-driver port makefile to pull the version you want. You'd also do a makechecksum or build with NO_CHECKSUM=yes

    Yep, that's what I did. Just change this line in the Makefile:
    Code:
    DISTVERSION?=   285.05.09
    


    to:
    Code:
    DISTVERSION?=   290.10
    


    And run # make makesum The port should build fine after that.
