Nvidia Solaris Display Driver 340.46

The OpenGL 3D native graphics driver installer developed by Nvidia for Solaris operating systems running on 32-bit and 64-bit architectures
Nvidia Solaris Display Driver is a proprietary, yet freely distributed OpenGL 3D video driver that brings support for Nvidia graphics cards on Solaris operating systems. The driver is distributed in multiple editions, as Long Lived (long term supported) and Short Lived (short term supported) branches.

Installing Nvidia Solaris Display Driver

In order to install the Nvidia Solaris Display Driver on your Solaris operating system, you must download the binary package from the Downloads section above and save the run file on your Home directory. Then, enter the terminal mode and execute the “sh ./NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-xxx.xx.run” command as root (switch to the root with the “su’ command), where xxx.xx is the version number or the driver.

Be aware that you must first install the kernel headers on your Solaris operating system. During the installation, users will be asked if they want to edit the X configuration file manually or let the installer do all the work. Alternatively, after installation, you can run the nvidia-xconfig command via an X11 terminal emulator client to set the new driver as default.

Will it run on my Solaris box?

Yes, most probably! It has been successfully tested with all the latest Solaris operating systems that were released in the last couple of years. Both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x86_64) instruction set architectures are supported at this time.

It doesn’t work with my very old Nvidia graphics card!

Because we’ve received many complaints from Solaris, FreeBSD and Linux users running very old Nvidia graphics cards, we feel obliged to mention here that this driver will not work with their video cards. Therefore, you should search Softpedia for the latest Nvidia Solaris Legacy Display Drivers, which are available in multiple branches, including 304.xx series, 96.43.xx series and 173.14.xx series.

What's New in This Release:
  • Fixed an OpenGL issue that could cause glReadPixels() operations to be improperly clipped when resizing composited application windows, potentially leading to momentary X freezes.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent the GLSL compiler from correctly evaluating some expressions when compiling shaders.
  • Added option UseSysmemPixmapAccel to control the use of GPU acceleration for X drawing operations on pixmaps allocated in system memory.
