Nvidia Solaris Legacy Display Driver 304.123
Installing Nvidia Solaris Legacy Display Driver
In order to install the Nvidia Solaris Legacy Display Driver on your computer running a Solaris operating system, you must first download the respective driver for your graphics card from the Downloads section above. Make sure that the kernel headers are installed, save the run file on your Home directory, open a terminal and execute the “sh ./NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-xxx.xx.run” command as root, where xxx.xx is the version number or the driver.
During the installation, you will be asked if you want to let the installer automatically detect the optimal settings for your graphics card or if you want to manually edit the X configuration file. To make the Nvidia graphics driver the default for your Solaris operating system, run the “nvidia-xconfig” command in an X11 terminal emulator after installation. Both 64-bit and 32-bit architectures are supported at this time.
