Xorg failing after patch install


I just installed the newest recommended patches for sol 10 x86 - in single user mode - but when I rebooted my X server wont come up - the
/var/dt/Xerrors says

EE No devices detected

The config file I had customized myself worked perfect before the patch adds and now it is being stupid - I am frustrated with this now because a patch add should not mess this up - I would love any thoughts on it --

Thanks

This is not going to help, but for your information: I had a vanilla Solaris 10 11/06 and I applied the same patch bundle you're mentioning: I had many and funny problems related to Xorg, including Xorg -configure and xorgcfg not working any more and some errors detected in xorg.conf which were not detected before applying the patch. I think there were due to some missing module which probably was removed from xorg distribution. By the way, not being able to generate a xorg.conf automatically (because Xorg -configure was broken...) and not willing to loose time solving something that sould work out of the box... I simply removed xorg.conf and the detected configuration was satisfactory for me.

That's exactly what patches shouldn't do... I'm afraid of patching, now.

Have luck,
Enrico.

??

Ok so now I tried installing an older version of the NVIDIA driver and it seams to work but now I get this error -

NVIDIA(0):Failed to obtain a shared memory identifier

Which I found out is because of CONFIG_SYSVIPC not being enabled in the kernel

The patch must have done it -

Anybody know how to enable CONFIG_SYSVIPC ??

I found the answer !

Ok so after tons of learning on changing kernel peramiters and all kinds of headache I found the problem - although it had nothing to do with that O well I learned alot --

The problem was patch # 125720-10 - an xorg patch - that fixed some bugs -

I patchrm 'ed it and right after a quick update_drv command and a reboot it was fixed -

I finally have dual screens with no problems --
