Hi,

after every uptdate (from beta1 to beta1.5 and to beta2) if have the problem 
that the GLX extension of the X-Server isn't working. Therefor i don't have 
any compositing effects in KDE nor i'm able to play OpenGL games like my 
favorite MegaGlest.

After reinstalling the NVIDIA driver from ports the issue is fixed. Maybe the 
wrong glx .so files are shiped with PCBSD not matching the NVIDIA driver?

glxinfo says:
