Irrelevant. The version of FreeBSD has nothing to do with this issue.Have you tried with 13.0 snapshot FreeBSD? Maybe it would have better support.
Again, irrelevant. You're trying to use a completely unrelated issue to prove a point in favor of your crusade.@SirDice:
This would be maybe what we can call FreeBSD Stable, including the kernel Entropy fix for non EFI (legacy) + stable Xorg (old working 2018 stuffs) for intel and nvidia cards.
This is an old NVidia card. Even NVidia stopped supporting it and the only driver that still supports this card is the 96 version. That version of the driver was built for the xserver version that was current at that time. It stopped working after xserver was updated to 1.14.
The 96 driver was removed mainly because it failed to build with x11-servers/xorg-server above 1.14. Another really good reason to remove it was the fact it contained a bunch of security issues and those were never going to be fixed by NVidia even if we could somehow get it to work on a newer xserver.
So, as shkhln already said, use x11-drivers/xf86-video-nv or x11-drivers/xf86-video-vesa. Anything else simply isn't going to work.
