I've upgraded to PCBSD 7.1.1 final over top of 7.1.1-RC2. I have had no
success with the new Nvidia 71.68.11 driver -- except to say it did not
cause a kernel panic and crash the system.
This computer is an HP Vectra VL-420 with built-in "Vanta" chip. Hence the
legacy driver 71.68.11 is the appropriate driver. I've attempted 1280x1024
and 1024x786.However, the video configuration attempt simply reports that
the attempts "failed".
Next, I tried the "nv" driver. It also failed. I was very surprised by
that as it has been the fallback whenever Nvidia's native drivers did not
I've been forced to use the VESA driver with noticeable downgrade in system
