If you wish to run Linux OpenGL applications on your FreeBSD computer, you will need to make sure that several prerequisites are met.
First, you should follow the basic Linux compatibility
installation guide in the FreeBSD Handbook (install the linux_base
package, etc). Once the basic components are in place, you will
need to install the NVIDIA Linux OpenGL libraries in
/compat/linux/usr/lib (do not brandelf them!); if
exists when you install the FreeBSD driver, the Linux compatibility
OpenGL libraries will automatically be installed.
module needs to be built with support for the Linux ABI
compatibility layer. This is the case by default; as a consequence,
nvidia.ko kernel module requires
linux.ko module to be loaded.
Note: If you have no need for Linux ABI compatibility and do not
wish to load
linux.ko, you can build
nvidia.ko kernel module without
support for the Linux ABI compatibility layer (see
nv-freebsd.h for details).
