A step by step instructions to use a projector with OpenSolaris 2008.11

If you want to use a projector with your OpenSolaris laptop, it's here.

I am running OpenSolaris 2008.11\* on a Toshiba Tecra M3 laptop  equipped with an Nvidia graphic card.

(\* # uname -a returns: SunOS opensolaris 5.11 snv_101b i86pc i386 i86pc Solaris )

1) Before booting your PC, check that LCD + ANALOG RGB is set up in Power On Display line in the BIOS. For my PC, the sequence is Esc + F1 to enter the BIOS.

2) Boot OpenSolaris

3) Go to System -> Preferences -> NVIDIA X Server Settings

4) Connect your external projector.

5) In the NVIDIA menu:

  • move to X Server Display Configuration
  • select Detect Display
  • (click to enlarge)

The external screen is appearing.

6) From the Model selector

  • choose the external Display
  • select configure and put "Twinview".

3D

Then for that display, select the same resolution as your internal screen. Plus select clone for the external screen.

3D

7) Select apply. The X Server restarts and you are done.
