Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a nVidia GeForce FX5900 with XFree 4.3.0 with latest drivers, and whenever i do a glxgears, or play a 3D game, my screen shakes horizontali, not very hard, but noticeable, specially on the edges of the screen. I tryed to change refreshing rate of the monitor and lower the resolution (current i'm on 1280x1024).
I also tryed to install previous drivers (53.28) with the same result.
I checked XFree log with that results:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): The user specified HorizSync "30.000-95.000" has been adjusted
(WW) NVIDIA(0): to "30.000-69.000" (the intersection with EDID-specified
(WW) NVIDIA(0): HorizSync "30.000-69.000")
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "1400x1050" (width 1400 is larger than
(WW) NVIDIA(0): EDID-specified maximum 1280)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "700x525" (height 1050 is larger than
(WW) NVIDIA(0): EDID-specified maximum 1024)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "1152x768":
(WW) NVIDIA(0): horizontal sync start (1178) not a multiple of 8
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "576x384":
(WW) NVIDIA(0): horizontal sync start (589) not a multiple of 8
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "360x200":
(WW) NVIDIA(0): horizontal sync start (378) not a multiple of 8
I tryed to use Option "IgnoreEDID" "1" and Option "UseEdidFreqs" "1", and neither of both helped.
My screen is an ADI Microscan 17"
Please, i need some help. as this is driving me crazy, this is my first nvidia card after a whole life of ATi (yes, yes, i've seen the light!)
