5 This is being pulled in because you have VIDEO_CARDS=nvidia in
6 /etc/make.conf. If you want only the opensource nv driver, you want
7 "VIDEO_CARDS=nv" instead.

13 The nv driver does not support DRI (eg, no 3D hardware acceleration),
14 so opengl applications are going to run in software emulation mode,
15 and probably be very slow.
