Default 173.14.18 stops working on snv-116

It was working fine under snv-112; I did liveupgrade yesterday, after that obviously the newly installed latest NVidia driver did not work on the Quadro FX500 card in the machine in question, so I replaced it with 173.14.18, as expected.

Xorg -configure fails with:

It seems the driver will have to be recompiled to enable latest Nevada versions to make use of legacy NVidia cards.

I will post the same message on OpenSolaris message boards as well.

I was able to get the system to work with the nv driver after uninstalling NVDAgraphics[r] packages and running

svccfg -s application/opengl/ogl-select setprop options/vendor = mesa
svcadm restart application/opengl/ogl-select

(on an unrelated to NVidia issue I am having problem with this nv driver - the mouse is constantly jumping to the top left corner; the previous snv-112 environment still works fine, so it is not a hardware problem)

Your experiencing the files /usr/X11/lib/modules/libwfb.so and /usr/X11/lib/modules/amd64/libwfb.so being clobbered (overwritten) with an incompatible version. This is due to the Xorg being upgraded to v1.5. Nvidia's install utility didn't become aware of the different versions of Xorg's at that time. The simple fix would be to replace the clobbered files. I've conveniently placed them on my website for download (the alternative would be to search the snv disk for it, I don't know what package the files are in).

Please be sure to place the appropriate file in the correct location, as the 32 bit and 64 bit versions have the same name.

Thanks, that worked.

I wonder what is the best way to do in this case; I should imagine one should save the two files *before* uninstalling NVDAgraphics[r] and replacing it with 173.14.18, then replacing the files installed by the NVidia package with those. The same problem will take place when OpenSolaris /dev repo jumps to 116.

This problem should now be resolved in the 173.14.19 NVIDIA Solaris legacy graphics driver release (available from ftp://download.nvidia.com/solaris/173.14.19).
