Description Gerard Seibert 2020-01-04 17:05:32 UTC
FreeBSD-11.3-RELEASE-p5 amd64

I am attempting to install the x11/nvidia-driver. Unfortunately, it will not install. This is the error message, which is emitted immediately when attempting to build the port.

/usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver # make                                                                 
===>  nvidia-driver-440.31 requires kernel source files in SRC_BASE=/usr/src.                       
*** Error code 1                                                                                    
make: stopped in /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver

The "/usr/src" directory is in fact, completely empty.

So, what's the actual issue?
