16:10 Wide Screen w/ nVidia GeForce FX Go 5200


Hi,

I've just installed Fedora Core 2 on my Toshiba Satellite Pro M30 Laptop.

Everything works fine (even the Wireless) exept the screen resolution. The laptop has a 16:10 wide screen and the best I could have is a 4:3 resolution of 1024x768.

I've tried to put the 1280x800 in the xorg.conf but it didn't work, even when I added some modelines found in some linux forums.

The graphic card is an nVidia GeForce FX 5200. In the "Display Settings" utility, I've selected "LCD Panel 1024x768" for the monitor and "NVIDIA GeForce FX (Generic)" for the Video Card.

Thank you for your help.

Here is my xorg.conf file:

Code:
# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Default Layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Files"

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of the 
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
	RgbPath      "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
	FontPath     "unix/:7100"
EndSection

Section "Module"
	Load  "dbe"
	Load  "extmod"
	Load  "fbdevhw"
	Load  "glx"
	Load  "record"
	Load  "freetype"
	Load  "type1"
	Load  "dri"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
#	Option	"Xleds"		"1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
#	Option	"XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
# or:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
#	Option	"XkbVariant"	"nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:nocaps"
#
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "keyboard"

go to this site and install the file using the help there

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-6106.html

read the readme file for some xorg.conf file changes.

hope this will help your problem as i guess your NVIDIA drivers are not installed properly
