Default Failed to initialize the GLX module


i have installed Solaris 11/06 x86 on my Laptop. The installation was fine but
the X11 does not work. I have installed the Geforce driver 1.0-9755 without
any errors. My Graphic-Card GEFORCE 8600GS. In /var/log/Xlog.0.log
is the error-message:
Failed to initialize the GLX module;Please check in your X log file that the GLX
module has been loaded. Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device !
UnloadModule: "nvidia"
UnloadModule: "ramdac"
UnloadModule: "fb"
Screens found, but none have a usable configuration

anybody can help me ?

Default Re: Failed to initialize the GLX module

Maybe specifing the xorg/modules Path helps:

./NVIDIA-.......pkg2.run --x-module-path=/usr/lib64/xorg/modules

./NVIDIA-.......pkg2.run --x-module-path=/usr/lib/xorg/modules


PS.: "eedstla" sounds so fränkisch

Edit: Sorry, just have noticed that this is the solaris forum. That above is ment to be for linux installations so I don't know if that also works for you.
