X11 on Solaris x86 laptop
By Josh Simons on Jun 13, 2005
I had a devil of a time getting the correct screen resolution on my Tecra M2 laptop after installing Solaris 10. Rather than attempt to enumerate the problems I had, I'll just suggest that if you are using Solaris 10 on a Tecra M2, then you do the following two things:
- Apply Xorg patch 118966-03, which improves Xorg's screen auto-detection capabilities. You can get the patch from PatchFinder on SunSolve.
- Replace the generic Xorg nVidia driver with the real deal from nVidia. Get the latest version here.
Best wishes and I hope this saves someone out there some time and trouble.
