No Desktop during new installation
I have a DELL Inspiron 3421 and it has NVIDIA GEFORCE which is probably my problem. I'm new to OpenIndiana but used to use Unix. During install I never made it to the Desktop but got to login. I logged on as "su" and ran this command as suggested: svcs -xv. When I run this command there is no response.
Secondly, I looked at this file as suggested: /var/log/Xorg.0.log.
It's a very big file. But I do see the message:
"(!!) More than one possible primary device found..."
after that the Intel Corporation Ivy Bridge Graphics Controller is mentioned as well as the NVIDIA Corporation GK107.
I saw several similar errors on the illumos gate but was not able to repair.
Thank you in advance.

Closing ticket. NO support for dual graphic-type platforms at this time through the Nvidia/Solaris driver. As mentioned, must be done in BIOS to override detection issue (works only on some platforms). Feel free to reopen if under consideration.
