View Full Version : NVIDIA 1.0-9746 Direct rendering: no

01-15-07, 11:16 AM

I have an AMD64 machine with NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 g. card. I have installed Solaris 10 (11/06) x86/64 on it. I have also installed the latest NVIDIA driver 1.0-9746. The installation was straightforward and at first sight successful. However, glxinfo says: "Direct rendering: no" I have looked at the manual of the driver and couldn't find any info about this problem. It would quite important to get it work, since I develop a simulation program with 3D visualization. I would very appretiate any suggestion.

Alas, I am in the same boat here.. I do not appear to have accel GL.
running NVIDIA X Server Settings I get the following:

GLX Info: Direct Rendering: No

and under OpenGL Information..

Renderer: MESA GLX Indirect

I have installed 1.0-9746 and everything else seems to be running floorlessly..I
even get 1-1000000000 of a second of an nVidia splash screen when X starts
so I know i'm atleast winning in that respect :)
Being that I need to work with GL, this is also important to me also.

I should add here, the card is a PCIe 256meg 6800GS on an nForce4 Ultra chipset mobo
running SunOS 64bit

Hi all

I think I have similar problem also.

I'm new to solaris 10 and am having problem installing nvidia driver.
After default installation of newly downloaded solaris 10 x86 on opteron (amd64) machine, installation of NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-1.0-9746.run seemed to go smoothly, indicated by brief NVIDIA splash screen after the reboot.

However, when I try to run ProE cad program, I get following error.

ld.so.1: pro: fatal: libGL.so.1: open failed: No such file or directory

But, there is libGL.so.1 in /usr/lib/X11/amd64 which seems to be from mesa, and also, there is libGL.so.1 in /usr/lib/X11/NVIDIA/amd64. So, do I need to symlink to libGL.so.1 in NVIDIA directory?

In addition, /usr/bin/X11/glxinfo shows
direct rendering: No
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4

And, upon examining /var/log/Xorg.0.log, I see following error.

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): log file that the GLX module has been loaded in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): server, and that the module is the NVIDIA GLX module. If
(EE) NVIDIA(0): you continue to encounter problems, Please try
(EE) NVIDIA(0): reinstalling the NVIDIA driver.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance
