Angry Re: HOWTO get NVidia driver working on GeForce cards in Solaris10

Well, I have tried and treid, to no avail. I have a 6800 Ultra, Solaris10 x64

I dl'd the 7676 driver and did all that was required, but have stumbled upon an
interesting discovery that might be causing the god aweful "can't open display on :0"

I discovered that Solaris is making it's own /etc/X11/.xorg.conf every time I reboot

Now I have edited that file to set the AGP to 3, and upon reboot the file was
replaced, I did a find for xorg.conf and .xorg.conf from / and can't for the life of me figure out where it's coming from.

I even removed /etc/X11/xorg.conf and used my edited .xorg.conf and once again it was replaced.

I've used these drivers a million time in Linux with never a problem.

what gives ?
