See the following thread from the misc@ mailing list:


NVidia doesn't play well in the Open Source world.

  • There is no reason to compile. Please study Section 15 of the FAQ. In particular, Section 15.1 states the following:
    ...users rarely need to compile software from source, as packages 
    have already been compiled and are available and ready to be used 
    on an OpenBSD system.
  • The amount of detail supplied is insufficient. Wierd compilation errors may have occurred because the version of the OS didn't match the version of the ports tree installed. As an example, if you installed OpenBSD 4.8-release, installing the ports tree for -current is unsupported, & can possibly lead to strange compilation errors. More information can be found in Section 15.4.1 of the FAQ.
