Good Afternoon All,

When I list :

"nvidia_load="YES"" in my /boot/loader.conf....the loader dies after
doing a register dump on the screen.

I have validated that the kernel module is indeed in
"/boot/modules"....I can kldload it and have it operate just fine if I
boot without the loader line enabled.

If I copy the modult into the /boot/kernel/ dir....then the
"nvidia_load="YES" line operates properly.

I have validated that "/boot/defaults/loader.conf" does indeed have a
line that is unremmed that points correctly to both the kernel and
module paths as search paths for modules.

Following another responders reply...I have performed a "sysctl
kern.module_path" and it returns what I expected "kern.module_path:

I also performed a "kldconfig -r" and received the response of

It is clear that I am configured properly......But it is also clear that
something else is wrong. This behavior now spans three new system

Assistance in resolving would be sincerely appreciated.

Sincerely and respectfully,
