After some problems, I have installed Solaris 11.4. The warnings said
WARNING: /pci@0,0/..... (xhci1): Connecting device on port 5 failed WARNING: /pci@0,0/..... (xhci1): Connecting device on port 6 failed Preparing image for use Unable to mount media Requesting System Maintenance Mode (See /lib/svc/share/README for more information) Console login service(s) cannot run
The problem was that I had inserted the USB stick into a USB3 port. I instead used a USB2 port and could finally install Solaris 11.4. So for future reference, if anyone fails to install with these error messages, I have recorded the solution here.
Now I have a problem. I cannot get to X11. I see the splash screen, so I have graphics. But when I try to start X11, it does not work. How can I get X11 graphics?
After installation, I added the desktop package:
# pkg install solaris-desktop
But still there is no X11. I reboot the PC, and see some error messages. Can anyone help me solve this problem? I have reinstalled the nvidia driver, I am using version 387.34 which is the one NVidia web site gave me.
I have a Supermicro X10SAT, E3-1245 cpu and a NVidia Geforce 1070Ti.
The error messages say:
WARNING: Signature verification of module /kernel/drv/amd64/nvidia failed WARNING: Signature verification of module /kernel/drv/amd64/nvidia_modeset failed Loading NVIDIA Kernel Mode Setting Driver for UNIX platforms 387.34 nvidia_modeset: Unloading krtld: WARNING: Signature verification of module /kernel/drv/amd64/nvidia failed krtld: WARNING: Signature verification of module /kernel/drv/amd64/nvidia_modeset failed nvidia_modeset: Loading NVIDIA Kernel Mode Setting Driver for UNIX platforms
And then I try to do “svcadm enable gdm” and after that I do “startx” and see these error messages:

So I get no X11. No GUI. How can I start X11?
