Ctrl+Alt+F1 switches to the screen with some colored squares and not to the terminal.
It worked in 367.44
It worked in 346.96
It worked in nvidia-driver-346.96, but is broken in 367.44.
Could you also try versions 367.57, 375.10, and 375.20 (the latest to date) to see if any of them makes a difference? The following should be sufficient:
> make DISTVERSION=xxx.xx -DNO_CHECKSUM all check-plist install
(If there are errors during the build or packaging, correct them before installation.)
375.20 is also broken.
What about version 375.39 (per ports r437618)?
375.39 also has this problem.
Same with 375.66.
Is there any way to report this to NVidia? Do they have bugzilla or something like that?
How can this issue ever be solved?
