Default Can install NVIDIA Driver into PCBSD
Hey all,

I just installed PCBSD into my main system but I can compile the driver.
Quote:
PCBSD# make install
===> src (install)
"/usr/share/mk/bsd.kmod.mk", line 12: "can't find kernel source tree"
*** Error code 1

Stop in /home/******/unzipped/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-8178.
PCBSD# make
===> src (all)
"/usr/share/mk/bsd.kmod.mk", line 12: "can't find kernel source tree"
*** Error code 1

This compilation error however seems to indicate that you haven't installed the FreeBSD source tree onto your machine.

To do this easily simply go to the System tool (KMenu -> Computer -> PC-BSD Settings -> System) and select 'Fetch System Source' from the 'Tasks' tab.

thanks

Also, I can't get my monitor to 1280x1024, which my monitor supports and recommends that resolution...

If you edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config file, make your 'Monitor' section look like this:

Code:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        Option      "DPMS"
EndSection
This should work on any modern monitor, however it may not work on some strange configurations. If it works you'll be able to change your resolution and refresh rate from KDE (Right click desktop -> Configure Desktop -> Display). If this fails you'll have to manually add your monitor details to this file.

As a note, the 'DPMS' setting allows power management on your monitor, you don't need it.

No idea why - agasnt general opinion. I was able to change my system using xorgcfg -textmode and edited "screen" in the text gui from the command line, and enabled up to 1600x1200 (my sysmax) and rebooted, KDE started in 16k x 12k px with the highest supported refreash rate and also enabled the other modes by just changing them in KDE's control center. In case it might help
