Additional information
  • Removed a spurious dependency on libpangox from the nvidia-settings binary shipped as part of the driver package.
  • Added support for xserver ABI 14 (xorg-server 1.14).
  • Fixed font rendering performance and corruption problems on X servers with backported support for the new glyph cache functionality added to Pixman 0.27.
Pre-Installation Notes: See the README for FreeBSD installation instructions, configuration information, and dependencies.
    * If you are using FreeBSD 6.x, you will need to make sure that the 'compat5x' package is installed.
    * The 'nvidia-settings' utility can be built from source (available here) if the binary included in the 173.14.37.tar.gz package doesn't work (e.g. due to a ports/ library version conflict)."
