I'm not sure if this is a hardware or a software problem.
I have an Envision H193W monitor which is physically 16:10. I've used this monitor with Windows to display 16:9 widescreen resolutions like 1220x768. Now I'm trying to get this to display properly with Slackware and X.
Following the instructions found everywhwere online, I added a ModeLine "1440x900" with the timings retrieved from /var/log/Xorg.0.log where 1440x900 is listed as an additional Video Mode. Starting X with the x.org nv driver, I get a screen which claims to be 1440x900 but is squeezed horizontally to fit in a 4:3 shaped region on the monitor. I have limited ability to adjust the image size an I can't stretch it out to fill the whole screen. The monitor thinks it's in a 1440x900 mode at 60Hz refresh and 56KHz sync.
Is this a monitor issue, a issue with my NVidia GeForce FX 5200 or an X configuration issue?
