View Full Version : Quadro4 and Solaris 10 (10/08 aka 6) x86

Hello,

I have a P4 dual-boot Solaris 10 x86 and a Xandros 4.5 system. When I was given this system, it came with a Quadro4 card. Not having DVI to VGA cables, I used a spare AGP ATI Redeon card for both.

I would like to use the Quadro4 card-with Xandros it will not be a problem. However, all drivers for this seem to be for the x64/x86 platform-which my P4 is probably not. Are there any drivers I can use on my Solaris 10 x86 to use this card?

Regards,

James

Your P4 is definitely an x86 and should work fine with the x86/x64 drivers (which work on either x86 or x64 machines - x86 being 32-bit Intel & AMD CPU's like Pentiums, x64 being 32-bit Intel & AMD CPU's like Opterons).

Thanks Alan!

I just discovered that the adapter I had bought from Radio Shack was bad :thumbdwn:-but the cable is still good as is the new DVI-VGA cable I bought.

Do I need to use the legacy driver: 96.43.xx or can I use the latest driver available?

Nevermind-sticky post mentions the use of the 96.43.07 driver.

Thanks for all the help!

Card works fine with the provided driver. Ran nvidia-xconfig and then checked xorg.conf. Everything went well so now both machines, Solaris 10 x86 and Xandros 4.5 OCE have a Quadro4 running ther display.
