    Cannot load graphical desktop

    951873
      I downloaded Solaris 11.1 (Text install x86, 585 mb) and installed it on VMware. After finishing installation, system booted and reached in single user mode. Now it's not loading graphical desktop. I don't know how to load it.
      Could you help me? Thanks & regards

          I assume you are using VMware player ... i may be wrong.

          The text install does not come with a graphical desktop:

          The following document indicates you will need to install the solaris-desktop package:

          sudo pkg install solaris-desktop

            ... without mentioning that fact.

            For the future, try to be considerate of others so that they won't spend effort and time that turns out to duplicate what you've already been told elsewhere.

            Stay with that other thread.
