Chapter 3. Installing the NVIDIA Driver

This chapter provides instructions for installing the NVIDIA driver. Note that after installation, but prior to using the driver, you must complete the steps described in Chapter 5, Configuring X for the NVIDIA Driver.

Starting the Installer

  1. The file is a self-extracting package that needs to be installed by the super-user. Become root by running the 'su' command and entering the super-user password.

  2. Execute the package file to install the packages that comprise the NVIDIA Solaris Graphics Driver:

    # sh

  3. Reboot:

    # reboot -- -r

    The -r option causes a reconfiguration boot.
