Yes, the nvidia-driver is necessary, as xorg itself only detects the (very old!) nvidia cards that are supported by the xf86-video-nv driver.

It's not magic, it goes through a hardcoded set of drivers and only probes nvidia on Solaris (!): https://github.com/freedesktop/xorg-xserver/blob/master/hw/xfree86/common/xf86AutoConfig.c#L228. Our port is additionally patched to probe scfb. That's all there is to it.
If all other attempts do not help, maybe try deleting the nvidia-driver and installing the upstream nvidia driver from the nvidia site.
If it then still does not work, then a problem with the port itself could probably be ruled out.

Personally I am using the upstream driver because, at least with earlier versions of the packaged nvidia-drivers, there were stability problems with suspend/resume.
This is commonly advised against, because the upstream driver does not register itself with the packaging system, which can cause problems when installing or updating stuff.

That's not true.

If all other attempts do not help, maybe try deleting the nvidia-driver and installing the upstream nvidia driver from the nvidia site.
Tracing and bisection are pretty reliable debugging strategies. Reinstalling things with random variations, on the other hand, is not.
 
Also, commented out nvidia:

Code:
 # cat /boot/loader.conf
....
# nvidia_load="YES"
# nvidia-modeset_load="YES"
Also the X configuration is useless without the NVIDIA kernel module loaded. Execute as root kldload nvidia-modeset before startx.

Note: The recommended place to enable the driver is in /etc/rc.conf:
Code:
kld_list="nvidia-modeset"
 
I re-read the thread from the top to better understand what's going on. If you know all this, please ignore & sorry for the noise.
  1. You are aware that FreeBSD has CURRENT (head branch, developer) major-STABLE (stable API, test branch) & major.minor-RELEASE (production) branches of the source tree.
    The stable branch receives cherry-picked so-called MFC updates & bug fixes from current, and this will eventually become the next maj.min release. The purpose of stable is to supply newest software to early adaptors willing to test & help with bug fixes. Early adaptors are typically the test labs of big organisations, experienced users willing to test & curious newbies... Besides that, those whose hardware demands the newest release because their hardware is not supported by a release version.
  2. Therefore, if you want to run stable, you are kindly requested to subscribe to svn-src-stable (read about latest MFCs) & freebsd-stable (report bugs & get help). Did you?
  3. That version maj.min-STABLE is to make the version number to conform to the scheme maj.min-XYZ, e.g. to make scripts happy that parse that. In realitas, it is maj-STABLE.
FWIW, X did work fine in this same hardware setup under 12.1-STABLE. Yesterday I updated from source, after which neither the new nor the old kernel booted. I installed an additional hard drive and installed on the new hard drive 12.2-STABLE and imported the old zpool - but haven't been able to start X.
No matter the outcome here, you should report this issue to the mailing list, because your previous stable version ran ok, so there must have been an MFC that might be suspicious or errorneous and should be investigated.

Now enjoy the privilege to follow a graphics wizzards (shkhin) guidance. T-Daemon may also be one, I dunno because usually I don't follow these threads. I'm not, @least not with non-intel. Afterwards, you may want to sum up & report to <freebsd-stable@freebsd.org>. Good luck!

PS: Theoretically, a x11 graphics driver from packages (same major version) should run as long as it's not a kernel module (*-kmod), but experience shows that you're better off compiling from ports for the kernel version you want to run it on. Since these talk to the kernel module, minimal changes in the kernel interface can cause incompatibilities.
 
Without an X configuration file for the NVIDIA driver there won't be a use of the full potential of the GPU, all attempts to diagnose the problem without loading the driver are useless. As the Xorg.0.log in #19 shows no NVIDIA driver is loaded. Please put the following minimal configuration into /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/nvidia.conf, restart Xorg and report back:

Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier "Card0"
    Driver     "nvidia"

Hello T-Daemon,

following the advice given by Mjölnir, I have disabled the nvidia card in the BIOS in favor of the on-board card. X gives the same error using either the onboard card or the GT 1030.
 
There is a lot of mixing two GPU's going on here, I suggest we concentrate on one GPU. Is this a desktop or notebook system? Please give details on the hardware.

It's a desktop. Full dmesg:

Is the Xorg configuration I advised in place, and the nvidia-modeset kernel driver loaded?
Yes, both:

# kldload nvidia-modeset
kldload: can't load nvidia-modeset: module already loaded or in kernel


# cat /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/nvidia.conf
Section "Device"

Also, I have attached the file startx3.txt which is the output of truss -o startx3.txt startx

The xorg.conf only tells us what we alredy know, that the packaged nvidia-driver just does nothing.
It does not give idea why.

Great!
Now the turn is on shkhln .
Would be wonderful if he takes the effort to find out why the packaged nvidia driver apparently does some erroneous system calls and bails out.
 
Hello shkhln,

I have added the file /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/nvidia.conf with the content

Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier "Card0"
    Driver     "nvidia"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Also, copied the same file to /usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/nvidia.conf.

# ls -l /usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d
total 19
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 1099 Mar 1 02:31 10-evdev.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 1350 Mar 1 02:24 10-quirks.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 152 Mar 1 02:24 20-evdev-kbd.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 1429 Mar 1 02:41 40-libinput.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 93 Mar 5 09:21 nvidia.conf



X does start, but the keyboard and mouse is frozen and shows a black screen, and CTR-ALT-Backspace doesn't kill X.

I have attached the logfile.

As far as I can tell, the userspace driver doesn't attempt to talk to the kernel driver. amnixed, did you actually test a configuration with BusID "PCI:1:0:0"?
Forgot to add: in the startup messages, this appears: rc.conf: nvidia-modeset_load=YES: not found
 
Well, I think it might be best to be frank:
I feel at loss why it was necessary at least three times to ask, by me and by shkhln as well, to make you actually try with the BusID directive.
Getting the kernel trace also needed at least three requests by shkhln and me as well.

Regarding the log, I see no monitor detection, and I do not know why.
Personally I have the feeling it might be due to some problem with the packaged driver, but who knows whether you actually did all steps necessary. You may want to review the article "HOWTO: Setup Xorg with NVIDIA's driver" to verify this.

If this does provide insights, you might send another kernel trace, this time with the nvidia driver actually running due to the BusID directive. Maybe shkhln might look into it then.

The Zap keys are disabled by default, here is how to re-enable them.

Otherwise, if shkhln is already tired of this issue, I'd try the upstream driver just to know whether it also shows the same problems like the packaged version.
 
Code:
% pkg info -D nvidia-driver
…
Starting with version 358.09, some important functionality of the driver
has been broken out into a separate kernel module, nvidia-modeset.ko.
Users that experience hangs when starting X11 server, or observe

    (II) NVIDIA(0): Validated MetaModes:
    (II) NVIDIA(0):     "NULL"

in /var/log/Xorg.0.log should replace ``nvidia'' with ``nvidia-modeset''
in their /boot/loader.conf or /etc/rc.conf configuration files, depending
on how they prefer to load NVidia driver kernel module.

See /usr/local/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README for more information.
 
Also, copied the same file to /usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/nvidia.conf.

Please remove it. That in /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d will suffice.

Forgot to add: in the startup messages, this appears: rc.conf: nvidia-modeset_load=YES: not found

Please remove nvidia-modeset_load=YES from /etc/rc.conf, enable the nvidia driver in the same file with kld_list="nvidia" only.
 
Using sysrc kld_list+=" nvidia" is safer, since it does not remove all other entries of kld_list. Likewise, you can remove with the command sysrc -x "nvidia-modeset_load"
 
Hello shkhln, T-Daemon, Snurg and Mjölnir,

Thank you for all your help and my apologies for being a scatterbrain in following your advice.

1. I have added the configuration described in the post https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/375/how-to-enable-killing-xorg-with-ctrlaltbackspace.

2. In /etc/rc.conf removed
Code:
nvidia-modeset_load="YES"
and added
Code:
kld_list+="nvidia"
.

3. In /boot/loader.conf replaced
Code:
nvidia_load="YES"
with
Code:
nvidia-modeset_load="YES"
.

4. Rebooted.

5. Starting X: works perfect!

6. CTR-ALT-Backspace kills X.

Upon startup though I see "/etc/rc.conf: kld_list+=nvidia: not found".

I have attached the last Xorg.0.log file.

kld_list+="nvidia" will not work as expected. This syntax can be used with the command line utilty sysrc(8) like this: on a console (aka terminal) type as user root: sysrc kld_list+=" nvidia" (note the space) will append the string nvidia (again note the space) to the variable kld_list in the file rc.conf(5). When you omit the space, the item to add will be merged tightly to the previous items in that variable, without the necessary space between them. That kld_list is, well, a list. The separator between the items of the list is a space.
