I'm trying to upgrade my laptop (Thinkpad X201) from snv151a to solaris 11.0.
After a successful uprgade (so it seems) I'm running into a problem with the intel video.
I had first to set console=force-text in grub, which solves the problem with framebuffer console freezing the screen (and the boot) with garbage (vertical colored lines).
So I can boot.
Unfortunately the X server also displays only this same (or similar) garbage. It doesn't freeze the machine though.
I tried to use Option "Tiling" "false" as per solaris 11-EA release notes, but no effect.
Tried also to use VESA driver, no change. I check from Xorg.0.log that the server is actually loading vesa.
I tried to disable modules. No effect.
Any ideas ? it is in deed strange that corruption occurs with both intel and vesa drivers, or ?
