I just tried OpenSolaris 2008.11

No desktop. The X-server pukes, so it drops to a console login. The Xorg.log file ends with errors like (info and warnings omitted):

(EE) intel(0): [dri] DRIScrreenInit failed. Disabling DRI.
(EE) intel(0): Failed to allocate framebuffer. Is your VideoRAM set too low?
(EE) intel(0): Couldn't allocate video memory

Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0.

Tried 2009.06 from USB-stick. X-server and wired network works.
Wireless does not...
