HELP nvidia + xorg.conf = BIG PIXELS
I have tried very hard to figure out a solution to this problem and I have been unable. I am using the volatil 2.6.9 'vanilla' development kernel from kernel.org. I am using the gentoo linux distro. Here is the problem.
I have my xorg.conf gile edited to run Display at default depth 24 with
modes "1440x900" "1280x1024" "1280x960"
when I run startx, the nvidia logo is huge and pixelated and the desktop is as well
If xorg.conf is edited with the 'nv' driver, the desktop is a normal size, but there is no nvidia.
running /var/log/xorg.0.log shows me these troubling lines...
(WW) NVIDIA (0): The user specified HorizSync "31.500-100.00" has been
(WW) NVIDIA (0): adjusted to "31.500-55.000" (the intersection with
(WW) NVIDIA (0): EDID-specified HorizSync "29.000-55.000")
(WW) NVIDIA (0): The user specified VertRefresh "59.000-75.00" has been
(WW) NVIDIA (0): adjusted to "59.000-60.000" (the intersection with
(WW) NVIDIA (0): EDID-specified HorizSync "0.000-60.000")
I'm pretty sure that all P25s use the same 31.5-100 horiz sync and 59-75 vert refresh rates.
Anyway, I've always used those refresh rates succesfully. I am wondering if there is something compiled into the kernel which affects the display of x-windows. I have installed the system three times in a row, and each time this has happened (on one install I used the 2.6.8 kernel) The one thing that all of these installs have in common is that they are the first three times I have configured my own kernel.
No one on the gentoo message boards seems able to help me and I hope someone here might be able to help me. Thanks
