Talking Re: 1.0-7664 for Solaris x64/x86 released

I blogged about this earlier today and already have had a thank you from one W2100 w/ NV280 owner who was very impressed with the ease of installation.

I ran a looking glass demo with it on my notebook (GeForce 4 4400 Go) at the Sydney Open Solaris User Group meeting which received a pretty good response too.

Alan.

Thanks very much, Nvidia. I'm in the middle of setting up a Solaris system and this will be a part of it.

Though I suppose you've upset Xi Graphics, you just cost them a sale. Now I don't have to scrounge around looking for a half-supported OpenGL card...

You guys ever going to make an NForce Driver for Solaris?

I absolutely refuse to put a PCI NIC in my nForce 2 box.

Thanks,

Taz

@Zander: *cheers* Thanks nVidia.

@TheTaz: You have a nVidia specific ethernet adapter? Or is it realtek, etc? If it's realtek, they have drivers up on their website for Solaris.

Lots of goodies there. Among others a driver for my nFORCE3 250 NIC.

Thank you NVIDIA. We were locked in to ATI cards because we weren't able to use the Xorg 'nv' driver to produce dual screen configurations. This should now be solved. Considering that Sun recommends NVIDIA cards, we'll be buying them going forward.

All,

I have installed the latest driver on my w1100z AMD x64 Sun box with Solaris x86 and I see that Xorg is hogging the CPU forever. Does anybody observed this before??

No. Can't say I've seen that. Usage on my box hovers around 2% while idling at the JDS desktop.

Must be nVidia because I already tried the realtek RTL 8129 / 8139 / 810x family drivers... and they didn't work.

ABit NF7-S onboard NIC.

Thanks, though.

I tried this module on a GeForce2 MX GPU and it did not work. The same driver version on linux works on the same machine. I cannot use nv driver because the system will hang intemittently. When does Nvidia plan to support the MX GPU and the NForce2 ethernet?
