FreeBSD FreeBSD 6.2, one of the most popular versions of the free BSD Unix operating system, is out with new features and updates. It plugs holes and, in addition to the usual route of installing directly to a hard drive this time around, offers a LiveCD that can be used to rescue a broken system. Developers on the free version of the BSD Unix operating system hope it will help build momentum for what is arguably the most popular BSD variant in use.

Hi,

Was anybody successful in getting the Nvidia 9xxx drivers isntalled?. I get an error in the make install steps. It doesn't seem to find where the X11 directories are located.

Are you installing the driver from the ports tree?

If you are installing NVidia package, not from ports, try the following:

make all install X11BASE=/usr/X11R6
