Greetings hydra, and thanks for your response.
Well, I went the way of the newest dirver available on the Nvidia site. The FreeBSD version was announced on the nvforums. So as My card is reasonably new and pretty darn fast. I decided to go w/it. While I did
read the entire documentation for it. The process did not go without some issues
. I was able to iron the whole thing out with little effort. So that was good.
The only thing I notice now, is upon reboot, occasionally the system panics at about the time it attempts to mount root r/w. I'm not sure if it's the Linux ABI I decided to enable, or not. But I'm pretty darn sure it is. As that's the only significant change to the system I did. Prior I didn't have linux_enable="YES", and I hadn't installed the emulators/linux_base-f10 "linuxulator" either. It's not that big a deal since this is just a "testbed" for evaluating this hardware as a potential for the 78 FreeBSD servers I currently own and operate. I won't have the Nvidia card I'm using on this one on any of the servers, and I also will not likely be using the Linux ABI either. So if I run into a panic once-and-awhile on this workstation, no big deal.
Thanks again hydra, for taking the time to respond.
