Solaris 10 10/09 Release Notes

Transition From ipge to e1000g NIC Driver as the Default Ethernet Driver for Sun4V Systems

The ipge driver and all its SUNWipge packages for Sun4V systems might not be available in a future release of Solaris. Starting with the Solaris 10 8/07 release, Ontario and other SPARC based platforms transition from ipge to e1000g drivers. The e1000g driver will be the default Ethernet driver for all Sun platforms that use Intel 1G chipsets.
