    Solaris installation on intel X86-64

    muhammad
      hi ,

      I have install Oracle solaris 10 8/11 on intel core i5 server. But its not opening in graphic mode showing message X-Server can not be started on display :0...

      (EE) Unable to locate/open config file
      Drivers to try are: "intel" "i810" "fbdev" "vesa" vga"
      (EE) failed to load module "dri" (module does not exist, 0)
      (EE) Failed to load module "intel" (module does not exist,0)
      (EE) VESA(0) setT vbe mode FAILED!
      Fatal server error:
      AddScreen/ScreemInit failed for driver 0
      X10: fata IO error 146 (Cconnection refused) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.


      did i have to install any additional vga drivers for it if yes where i found that.

      Thanks Zeeshan

          Graphical card support is limited. The first step is to determine the GPU chipset that you use in your server. Then we can check if this is supported or not.

          More details are available in this files : /var/dt/Xerrors, /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /var/log/Xsun.0.log.
          Please run also this command to determine which card is installed : # /usr/X11/bin/scanpci -v

            hi,
            Thanks for your response. The command shows the following results.

              Seems that you have an Intel HD Graphics 2000 chipset. I'm not sure that we support this GPU with Solaris 10 excepted with VESA driver if this works.
              I will suggest to test Solaris 11 that integrates a larger list of supported devices.
