Nvidia Drivers available for Solaris on x86 and x64

Further to my not that I gave a brief demo of looking glass at SOSUG on Tuesday night, I just checked the nVIDIA drivers download page.

There is a bit more information at http://www.nvidia.com/object/solaris_display_1.0-7664.html, including a link to a discussion board on the driver.

The driver is supported for Quadro cards, but also simply works for many of the GeForce ones (like what's in my notebook. It should also be noted that it will only work with Solaris 10 and anything newer (e.g. Solaris Express and Open Solaris).

Well, simply works is a little bit of an over simplification.

You'll need to add the device name into /etc/driver_aliases if you are not using a supported card.

I'll try to get some instructions up in the next day or so (unless someone beats me to it).
