An update:
You posted your monitor's EDID output in post #3
This was very useful, because I went here http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl to try and generate a Modeline for your monitor at 2560 x 1600, with HorizSync 30-80 and VertSync 60 and a max Dot Clock Frequency of 268.5MHz
It complained that to work like that, the dotclock would have to be over 400MHz, which will not work!

In your original thread on ubuntuforums you had also tried to use gtf to compute a modeline for you:
Quote:
Code:
Code:
gtf 2560 1600 60
And this is what came out: 
Code:
  # 2560x1600 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 99.36 kHz; pclk: 348.16 MHz
  Modeline "2560x1600_60.00"  348.16  2560 2752 3032 3504  1600 1601 1604 1656  -HSync +Vsync
Again, your required dotclock is again, way too fast, so no wonder it didn't work.

The xtiming.sourceforge link suggested trying using interlacing, so I did, and it came up with this modeline:

Modeline "2560x1600@60i" 163.70 2560 2592 3208 3240 1600 1636 1644 1681 interlace
Maybe we have to add -HSync +Vsync to the end of that line (I'm not sure here try without / with!)
This dot clock should be easily achievable.

On the basis of the above, I am listing an xorg.conf that might just work for you. Please try it:
Code:

I deleted all the references to wacom tablets & stuff, because I don't think you have one, and it makes the file (and error logs) shorter easier to read.

There's no reference to UseEDID any more, because that isn't the problem. The problem is that we need to use interlacing to get that resolution

If it doesn't work, maybe I have done something stupid so please post the X error log.

Fingers crossed

Ok... I'm trying that now. I know that just remembering where a couple of files are located isn't that much, but I'm happy to be getting familiar with my xorg.conf file and Xorg.0.log file.

Yes, I did. At first, I kept getting an error. It took me quite a while to even realize to google the error and find an answer. Then I found that I needed to change the directory I was in... *there's an indication of my freshness to this.

Ok. Well, I'm willing to try whatever need be done. I just don't have a lot of ideas, nor understanding about what types of ideas I should be having.

Again... Thanks so much for your help... and patience so far. I keep thinking, "I just hope we can get this solved, before Tredegar's 1500th post."

I tried it...

I still don't have an option for a higher resolution than 1280x800.

Interestingly enough (or not), I now have 2 refresh rate options: 50Hz and 54Hz.

Previously it was only 50Hz

We are getting closer
Try changing the following two lines in your xorg.conf:
Code:
Modeline       "2560x1600" 163.70 2560 2592 3208 3240 1600 1636 1644 1681 interlace

Modes          "2560x1600" "1280x800" "1280x768" "1200x800" "1024x768" "800x600"
And see what happens.

At least this time, I'd been at it before you clued me in. I'm learning something

No difference though.

I am too, that's partly why I' doing this.
Add the -HSync +Vsync option to the modeline? I am getting desperate for ideas now.

Nice try, but in your xorg.conf, the dotclock in the ModeLine is way too fast (436.05), please use the ModeLine I posted. And why have you changed the DisplaySize to 650.00 406.00? This is strange. Are you using GUI tools? Please don't - they sometimes do weird things (as you are finding!). Please reinstall the xorg.conf from my post #16, and don't use GUI tools - they cannot sort out this type of puzzlement, we'll have to do it.

Once we have xorg.conf fixed up, it'll boot straight to 2560x1600 without GUI tools.

In this post http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...48#post2844448
I referred to how to shut down X and restart it using startx from a terminal.

This link:
http://http.download.nvidia.com/XFre...ppendix-j.html
Refers to "Mode Validation Reporting" and using startx with verbose reporting
For modes that were considered invalid, the log will report why the mode was considered invalid.
So try starting X like this:
startx -- -logverbose 6
And we can see if it reports something useful (in the usual X log file)
It is worth a try.
I won't be ignoring you, but in my TZ, hunger calls ....

I was trying to experiment with different things - hoping to find a solution. I'm still not sure what everything is, or does. It's back to the way you suggested now.

I don't know what else is useful from this or what we should be looking at.

do you think this might be easier with a different distribution of Linux?

I chose ubuntu, because of its apparently large community and ease of install. However, I am not particularly attached to it. I don't have to use 6.10 or i386. I'm currently downloading ubuntu 7.04 - amd64 .iso, Fedora Core 7 and Debian . These seem to be pretty easy for beginners, from what I've read.

I don't really mind doing a fresh install, as it may be quicker than trying to work things out with 6.10. However, I also suspect that this issue is not with the distribution, but with my newbness...

What do you think? Should we try a different version or distribution, or just keep trying to mess around with xorg.conf?

I'm still more interested than frustrated with this whole process, so either way, I'm good to go.

I am really, really happy (and surprised) that you've stuck with me for this long, tredegar. I really appreciate all your help so far.

I don't know if this has anything to do with anything, but GAIM keeps crashing when I try to upload my display picture. It didn't before.

Yes, but it also says:

(WW) NVIDIA(0):     Mode is rejected: Mode (2560 x 1600) is too large for DFP
- Which is much better because it is not complaining about sync rates, just that the rejected mode is "too large" for DFP (="Digital Flat Panel"??), whatever that means.

There's a post here http://www.groupsrv.com/linux/about74887.html that mentions this, and his monitor (1680x1050) was working fine "before Xorg was upgraded to 6.7". Their solution was to add this line
Option "ModeValidation" "NoMaxPClkCheck,NoEdidMaxPClkCheck"
to the Monitor section. You could put it after the Option "DPMS" line of my original xorg.conf Please reinstall that file, then add the Modevalidation line to it, do not run any gui tools, then restart X, then check the log. You must be getting the hang of this by now

====

I do not think a different version of linux is going to help you - they all use Xorg, and that, +/- NVIDIA is where the problem seems to lie. Frankly, I am embarrassed that you have had all this trouble. X should "Just work", as it does for me.

====

I don't know what gaim is, or why it is crashing. We can cross that bridge when you have a nice display working.
Thanks for your patience - you are doing well for a "newbie", and I suspect you will soon be LQ's resident Xorg guru! ( I have noticed that "What's wrong with my xorg.conf?" posts tend to scare people off, because yes, it's complex, and there is tons of documentation and options to wade through)

Hope the above makes sense, I usually try not to post until I have had sufficient caffeine in the morning (getting there)

You're probably right. OK.. I'll try to stick with this, at least until we figure this out.

So... still get this:
Mode is rejected: HorizSync (98.7 kHz) out of range
and this:
Mode is rejected: Mode (2560 x 1600) is too large for DFP

I noticed that you said to put Option "ModeValidation" "NoMaxPClkCheck,NoEdidMaxPClkCheck" in the Monitor section, but on the other forum, he had put it in the Screen section, so I tried both.
