I’ve now got a 64bit nVidia driver with Xorg on snv_60

When I upgraded to snv_60 I noticed that the X server wouldn’t start. This is due to there being no 64bit nVidia driver integrated into that build. Alan Coopersmith is working with nVidia to resolve it, but in the meantime somebody on #opensolaris pointed me to`http://www.nvidia.com/object/solaris_display_1.0-9755.html`_ which has the 64bit driver ready for use.The workaround for running Xorg in 32bit mode on is

# svccfg -s x11-server setprop options/server=/usr/X11/bin/i386/Xorg

And if you want to run Xorg in 64bit mode, use

# svccfg -s x11-server setprop options/server=/usr/X11/bin/amd64/Xorg

Don’t forget to re-run

# /sbin/bootadm update-archive ; reboot

after you’ve installed the new package. Once you’ve rebooted and logged in again, you can make use of the nVidia control panel:
