Description

The wiki said to let you know if I get stuck at text login (because of possible graphics driver problem I guess).

I tried to install from b148 live dvd iso. Made the keyboard/language selections etc and then got stuck at the console login prompt. It did not auto advance to a graphical desktop. I assume because I have 2x Nvidia GTX580 video cards installed.

GTX580 cards are quite new. The current NVIDIA driver in oi (256.44) does not appear to support the newer cards.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/solaris-display-256.44-driver.html

There is a feature request in to update the driver to 260.19 (see #540) which does support your card.

http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/solaris-display-260.19.29-driver-uk.html

You could either update the driver manually, or wait until this request gets actioned.
