Hi all,

Yesterday, I did the following trying to install the Nvidia metapackage:
1) Used the Control Panel > System Manager > System Packages but this
update would fail (I've neglected to save the error message in
/tmp/.pc-updatemanagerlog).

So instead I
2) Modified /usr/local/etc/pkg.conf
#packagesite: http://getmirror.pcbsd.org/packages/9.1-RELEASE/amd64
packagesite: http://mirrors.nycbug.org/pub/PC-BSD/packages/9.1-RELEASE/amd64

3) ran # pkg install pcbsd-meta-nvidia-21982

4) pkgs seem to have installed fine, but...

After rebooting, selecting the Nvidia driver via the Display Wizard,
lxpanel was very unhappy. After trying to switch back to the vesa driver,
I'm experiencing the same lxpanel flickering. I've posted a short video to
Youtube (http://youtu.be/FbypT6cv1vI). My dmesg looks something like:
...
...
pid 23415 (lxpanel), uid 1001: exited on signal 6
pid 23419 (lxpanel), uid 1001: exited on signal 6
pid 23423 (lxpanel), uid 1001: exited on signal 6
pid 23427 (lxpanel), uid 1001: exited on signal 6
pid 23431 (lxpanel), uid 1001: exited on signal 6
pid 23435 (lxpanel), uid 1001: exited on signal 6
pid 23462 (lxpanel), uid 1001: exited on signal 6
pid 23466 (lxpanel), uid 1001: exited on signal 6
pid 23470 (lxpanel), uid 1001: exited on signal 6
WARNING pid 23888 (python2.7): ioctl sign-extension ioctl ffffffff80087467
WARNING pid 23903 (python2.7): ioctl sign-extension ioctl ffffffff80087467

I can get by with Openbox for now, but getting back to LXDE would be nice.
:) I'm guessing this is probably a pkg conflict of some sort. Maybe? Let me
know if there's any additional information I can provide & I'll send it
along.

Thanks very much!
Bridger
