Transitioning From Oracle® Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11.3

Exit Print View

Updated: December 2018

Graphics Driver Changes

Starting with Oracle Solaris 11.3, the NVIDIA graphics driver in the driver/graphics/nvidia package has been updated to version 346.35. This driver only supports the Fermi, Kepler, and Maxwell family of graphics processing units (GPUs). Older GPUs that work with the 340 driver will now fall back to the vesa/vgatext drivers. Note that older GPUs continue to be supported, but the support has transitioned to the 340 legacy driver. If you know your GPU by name, you can find a full list of affected GPUs at https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3473.
