With certain configurations systems containing SR-IOV capable devices might encounter problems with the X11 Xorg graphical user interface (GUI) not starting. Systems running the Oracle Solaris 11 preinstalled operating system software already contain the workaround for this issue. However, if you do a new installation using the Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 Release 1.0 distribution media and observe the X11 GUI failing to start, perform the workaround described below.
Before You Begin
If you are performing a GUI-based installation of the Oracle Solaris OS 11 11/11:
Perform steps 1-3 to allow the GUI to start for the installation. Then, on the first boot after the installation, perform all of the steps (that is, steps 1-4).
If you log in to the system without using the graphical console (text or serial console or Ethernet login):
On the first boot after the installation, perform step 4.
-kd -B console=mode
where mode is either ttya for a serial console or text for VGA text.
kernel /platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix -kd -B console=ttya
kernel /platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix -kd -B console=text
