I was under the impression that you couldn't just yet install into SXCE or Opensolaris without certain workarounds. The workarounds are as follows:

cd /usr/X11/lib/modules
mv libwfb.so libwfb.so.copy
cd amd64
mv libwfb.so libwfb.so.copy
/tmp/NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-180.44.run
.

.
mv libwfb.so libwfb.so.nvidia
mv libwfb.so.copy libwfb.so
cd ..
mv libwfb.so libwfb.so.nvidia
mv libwfb.so.copy libwfb.so

This assumes you have the correct libwfb.so installed from the nv111 DVD. Suns library needs to be used due to the upgrade to X.Org 1.5. You may need to copy libwfb.so from the DVD (both 32 & 64 bit versions). You can also use this procedure to downgrade to the previous 173 or 177 series drivers.
Hello,

I first uninstall NVDAgraphics, and then install the Nvidia-Solaris-x86-180.44.run without any problem (except the desktop effect issue). It's odd? :o

Thanks zender, I'm downloading the 180.50 driver.
