Description

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.
