I just started with FreeBSD and wonder if there is anyone, who could help me to get my Nvidia GT 730 graphic Card installed.

If I google around, I find some examples which provide more questions than answers and are not always leading to success.

Wondering if here is someone with patients and could provide a step by step guide?

Any help is very much appreciated

Dirk

Tried to install from ports and that's what I got:
Code:
root@voyager:/usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver # make install clean
===>  nvidia-driver-390.25 requires kernel source files in /usr/src.
*** Error code 1

Stop.
make: stopped in /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver
root@voyager:/usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver #

I was doing a little Youtube channel and I have done a step by step guide / tutorial where even ubuntu user can copy and paste all steps necessary to get their Nvidia Graphic Cards installed;


Hope that will help new comers to FreeBSD and others who struggle to find the proper and working solution.

Have fun with your FreeBSD

Dirk
