Solved FreeBSD 11.0-Current and NVidia

I can't find this info in online searching.

Does FreeBSD 11 still require Linux compatibility for the NVidia driver to work?

And then, if the linux compatibility is optional, what functionality (if any) do I loose if I build the driver without linux support?

Thank you!


You will lose the ability to take advantage of any acceleration features such as OpenGL in Linux applications.

The FreeBSD X11 driver has NEVER required the Linux compatibility layer to work, it is only enabled on the driver for convinience for those who run Linux applications on their FreeBSD system.
