Nvidia 7600GT under FreeBSD 6.2 and X.org 7.2

I just recieved my brand new Nvidia 7600GT and wanted to get it working under FreeBSD. I installed the x11/nvidia-driver, x11/nvidia-settings and x11/nvidia-xconfig. Installing the driver should have added the following line to your /boot/loader.conf:


Once that was done I ran nvidia-xconfig and fixed up my xorg.conf. I removed "dri". My modules section looks like so:

Section "Module"
    Load           "extmod"
    Load           "record"
    Load           "dbe"
    Load           "glx"
    Load           "xtrap"
    Load           "freetype"
    Load           "type1"

Make sure that the driver is set to "nvidia" like so:

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Card0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "nVidia Corporation"
    BoardName      "7600GT"

Once that was done I started X and was able to run nvidia-settings and configure the driver on the fly.
