Hello Guys, i had installed NomadBSD 130 in an external SSD Kingston plugged-in in my desktop that has an Nvidia graphic card, that has not recognized by the system.
The output of “pcconf -lv” is:

vgapci0@pci0:2:0:0: class=0x030000 rev=0xa1 hdr=0x00 vendor=0x10de device=0x1287 subvendor=0x1642 subdevice=0x3e56
vendor = ‘NVIDIA Corporation’
device = ‘GK208B [GeForce GT 730]’
class = display
subclass = VGA
hdac0@pci0:2:0:1: class=0x040300 rev=0xa1 hdr=0x00 vendor=0x10de device=0x0e0f subvendor=0x1642 subdevice=0x3e56
vendor = ‘NVIDIA Corporation’
device = ‘GK208 HDMI/DP Audio Controller’
class = multimedia
subclass = HDA

So, what i can do to install Nvidia driver, and which one? 304? 390? or higher?

Thanks a lot

Hi @borgio3,

install the latest Nvidia driver.

Installed nvidia-driver-460.84 plus nvidia-settings.
Edited files like this:

# sysrc initgfx_enable=NO
# sysrc sysrc kld_list+=" nvidia"

Created /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia.conf with the following content:

Section “Device”
Identifier “NVIDIA CARD”
VendorName “NVIDIA Corporation”
Driver “nvidia”

But resolution of my screen still is 1600 x 1200, but my monitor has 1920x1080 resolution.
What can i do?

Follow the instructions from the errata (HDD/SSD installed NomadBSD doesn’t start the GUI on systems which require nvidia-driver > 390)

SOLVED few minutes after my last post.
Editing this: /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-video-initgfx.conf
Section “Device”

  • Identifier “NVIDIA CARD”*
  • VendorName “NVIDIA Corporation”*
  • Driver “nvidia”*
