I have an old but very capable PC I am bringing up FreeBSD 13 on. I am going to use it as a photo file server. Is it possible to run the NV card that is in this machine on this OS?
I have been able to boot FreeBSD 13 and the card works as VGA/text but all drivers I have tried either fail to compile or just don’t work.
My latest attempt was:
vgapci0@pci0:1:0:0: class=0x030000 rev=0xc1 hdr=0x00 vendor=0x10de device=0x018a subvendor=0x10de subdevice=0x0168
vendor = ‘NVIDIA Corporation’
device = ‘NV18GL [Quadro NVS 280 SD]’
class = display
subclass = VGA
