Nvidia Solaris Display Driver 343.22
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.
