install x11/nvidia-driver from ports tree
load it with kldload nvidia
or add nvidia_load="YES" to /boot/loader.conf

run X -configure
if works (will work) copy output file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
 
Hello, I had problems with firefox (amd64) with nv driver but it works fine after adding to "Device" section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Code:
        Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
        Option "MigrationHeuristic"  "greedy"
 
OP
dybnu
thanks Levenson & killasmurf86 ,I am using amd64,which have no official driver

and thanks artificer ,I followed your suggestion,it works fine now

thanks milosz,your method maybe can works on higher nvidia chipset but not suitable for me :)
 
correction:
nvidia driver works on amd64, if you run it in 32bin mode ;)

besides, i don't see you mentioned you got 64bit os earlier
