[PC-BSD Testing] 1.4 Beta freezes on Xorg configuration in install

Unfortunately, this did not help the Nvidia issue. I still get the exact
same freeze when trying to configure X after install. I then boot into safe
mode and I tried the 100.14.11, 9746 and the 7184 drivers all without
success - only the 'nv' one works.

I did notice a couple of error messages while it was trying to start X with
the nvidia drivers though, I quickly jotted them down:

NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x12:0x2b:1544)
nvidia0: Rm_Init_adapter() failed!

I hope you can get some information from that!
