Solaris 10, compatibly issues?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
im having problems trying to boot solaris 10, when i boot it says it loading log on and then the screen powers down while the computer stays running, so my question is: is the 8800 gts compatible w/ solaris 10, if not, is there any way to make it

Since the 8800gts is so new, I'm sure there is some compatibility issues with it and Solaris. Check out FreeBSD or OpenBSD. I like them a lot better.

Is there any specific reason why you are using Solaris or can you use any other operating system? This just may have some help for you.. I came across it while reading news..

There is not really a specific linux operating system that can run games better then the other. There are some that use less resources which helps a lot but at the moment, linux is not a gaming operating system. But do not get your hopes up, I use linux 24/7 and I am a huge gamer. I play CS:S, DOD:S, Guild Wars, Nexuiz, Battle for Wesnoth, ect.

Personally, for a new user, I would recommend Ubuntu 7.04. It is very simple to install, most software you need is installed, and it also won't limit you very much and you can move on from it easily. I am using a derivative of it, Xubuntu, which uses a little less resources and the XFCE window system but I also have Gnome installed which I use more now-a-days

It is not if the operating system is compatible, its if Nvidia has release good drivers for it. It does not matter what OS you are using, you just have to install the right drivers
