SUSE 10.1 unlisted resolution


I have just installed SUSE 10.1 (KDE) and have found that my monitor's native resolution (2560x1600) is not listed. The monitor is a Dell 3007 WFP and the video card is a eVGA GeForce 7600 GT CO. Is this a problem with my drivers, or do I just need to modify the xorg.conf? Right now the xorg.conf says it's using generic settings but in SaX it lists my monitor as DELL 3007 and video card as NVidia 7600 GT. I have not figured out how to update drivers either, which I expected to be in YaST.

I think now with SuSE you need to get the NVidia drivers directly from Nvidia's driver site; they are no longer sitributed. The latest episode of the Linux Reality Podcast dealt some with SuSE 10.1 driver installation, so you might find it helpful. BTW the max reoslution for your monitor is 2650x1600 not 2650x16000. I know this was probably a typo, but just checkin' :-D,

Install drivers from nvidia

I would suggest also downloading and installing the nvidia drivers from nvidia. When i installed suse linux 10.1 i also had problems with the default video driver which were cleared up after i installed the nvidia driver.

Best of luck

Oops, yes I meant 1600. At first I didn't have the kernel-source installed so the driver installation gave me an error, but afterwards it was smooth sailing. The site was helpful, since I didn't know how to get to quit X. Thanks for the suggestions.

I noticed in YaST it still says my display is 800x600 even though it's at 2560x1600 now. How is this different then the display settings in Configure Desktop?

I got a "No Video BIOS for depth" error. Assuming I can get a driver for my monitor, how do I go about using command mode to use YaST (I know - this is just too simple a question) and/or update the driver or BIOS? Thanks.
