XF86Config: how to avoid black frame : Suse 8.2 + new nvidia driver
Semi-Newbie needs help:
How can I persuade ;-) the driver or what do I have to edit in XF86config to use the right mode 1400x1050 and full screen of my dell laptop???
I am facing a problem with the right mode and or screen size of my dell inspiron 4100 laptop under suse 8.2:
Installation of the new 4496 version nvidia driver went fine for me and sax2 produded a working XF86config; (I had one before).
So now I get as before full screen picture in 1400x1050 mode - so far there is no problem;
However the problem starts when I try to use 3D support .
After editing XF86config ("nv" to "nvidia" ... etc. ) the 3D support also works fine now (- for the first time with powermanagement, woh) - so far so good ;
But, I always get the wrong resolution ; 1280X1024 instead of 1400X1050. When I switch to 1400x1050 by typing [Alt F7] the screen is not used fully and I get this black frame around it !
It is not possible to use sax2 for it - it always produces the wrong 1280X1024 resolution.
How can I persuade ;-) the driver or what do I have to edit in XF86config to use the right mode 1400x1050 and full screen of my dell laptop:
I am using SUSE 8.2 ; default kernel out of the box;
hardware: Dell Inspiron 4100 Laptop with nvidia Geforce 2 Go (32 mb) and a 14'' TFT with 1400x1050 pixels
hope somebody knows what to do - thanks in advance
