Default Re: Can't enable Desktop Effect after upgrading to snv_111

Simplified workaround for NVIDIA GLX not selected properly in b111-112:

# svccfg -s ogl-select setprop options/vendor=nvidia
# svcadm restart ogl-select

If you have already wiped out libwfb.so by installing a pre-180.50
driver from the NVIDIA download page, recover first by uninstalling
the driver:

# pkgrm [-R alt-root-location ] NVDAgraphicsr NVDAgraphics

libwfb is delivered in the SUNWxorg-server IPS package. Reinstall it:

# pkg uninstall -r SUNWxorg-server
# pkg install SUNWxorg-server

All of this should be fixed in b113.

@ shaoxuan, your welcome, it was really no trouble

@ zander, do you know if the 185 series drivers will incorporate a no clobber fix for libwfb.so and when?
