Default Re: Help, Can't start X Server


Thanks for the quick response.

The testing that I'm doing on this machine is likely to trash the system on a regular basis. I was hoping to find out what's missing from my "Full system backup" to allow the nVidia card to work after a restore.

Uninstalling / reinstalling the drivers is one option, simply uninstalling the nVidia drivers seems to get me a working X Windows system.

Ideally I'd like to know why, after apparently recovering the installed nVidia components from the backup, the system isn't creating the correct entries in /dev.

It seems odd to me that I get an entry in /devices but seem unable to create corresponding entries in /dev

(I'm an applications developer, not a sysadmin, so the inner workings of Solaris are pretty much a mystery to me)

Thanks & regards
