hp elitebook 8540p / NVS 5100M
 
Hi,

neither the drivers shipping with Solaris Express nor the current drivers work for the HP EliteBook 8540p with an NVS 5100M. When starting Xorg after configuring it with nvidia-xconfig the screen stay in text mode for a while after being cleared and about 10-20 seconds later the display is turned off completely. At that point the system is still running, but it does not respond to keyboard input anymore. Also the hotkey combination ctrl-alt-backspace for shutting down X doesn't help. Only pressing the power button will force a shutdown of the machine.

What do I need to do or what setting do I have to apply in the configuration to make the driver work.

BTW: it also didn't cleanly install. I needed to manually copy the gfx_private files and add the packages after removing the original ones.

Cheers,
Thomas

So with the latest version of the driver the NVS 5100M is officially supported. Nevertheless, the X-server fails to start on the HP 8540p.

At the end of the log there is following error message:
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
(EE) Feb 27 16:01:16 NVIDIA(0): WAIT: (E, 0, 0x857d, 0)

Too sad...
