View Full Version : BugReport for 1.77.82 and snv_101b - Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!

Hye all,

you will see in attachments two bug reports.

- The first one is when I don't try to correct symlinks which are still linking with mesa.
It is related to this bug: http://defect.opensolaris.org/bz/show_bug.cgi?id=363 which seems not to be corrected yet.

- The second report is when symlinks are "corrected". May be partially corrected... I updated the /var/run/opengl symlinks with the following script.

#!/usr/bin/env bash

find /usr/X11/include/NVIDIA/GL/ -name *.h -exec ln -sf {} /var/run/opengl/include \;

ln -sf /usr/X11/lib/NVIDIA/libGL.so.1 /var/run/opengl/lib/libGL.so.1
ln -sf /usr/X11/lib/NVIDIA/amd64/libGL.so.1 /var/run/opengl/lib/amd64/libGL.so.1

ln -sf /usr/X11/lib/modules/extensions/NVIDIA/libglx.so /var/run/opengl/server/libglx.so
ln -sf /usr/X11/lib/modules/extensions/NVIDIA/amd64/libglx.so /var/run/opengl/server/amd64/libglx.so

In the second case I'm going further, but it still ends with "Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!"

In those two cases I'm following the basic procedure ...
sh NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-177.82.sh
pfexec nvidia-xconfig
ctr+alt+backspace or pfexec svcadm restart gdm or pfexec init 6

I hope you will be able to help me. :)

As I see here (http://opensolaris.org/os/community/x_win/changelogs/changelogs-nv_100/) symlinks should be corrected in build 103. There is a release for IPS in January with the build 105. This should be at least better ...
But I already think having corrected symlinks.

NVIDIA 9300GE Device PCI ID 0x06EA works with 1.80.22 !! Please add it to the Supported NVIDIA GPU for 1.80.22 webpage (http://us.download.nvidia.com/solaris/180.22/README/appendix-c.html) :)
