As my nvidia graphics card is not supported by Hipster,
I had to use an older driver designed for Solaris.
I first had to uninstall the one shipped with Hipster, then
unpack the package for Solaris, and start its installer :

pkg uninstall pkg:/driver/graphics/nvidia \
sh ./NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-304.125.run -x
cd NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-304.125
sh ./install

However this driver (and more recent ones) is not
compatible with recent Hipster, so I cannot upgrade
any more...
