I have the following problem:
Got myself a nice new LCD-Screen and attached it to the DVI-Out of my Nvidia Geforce4 TI Card. Everythings fine in Windows, and everything is fine on linux command line, that is, DVI-Out works, the Screen is getting a digital signal.
But whenever starting X, theres no more DVI output! Only Analog. I do have to attach an analog cable to get X picture. Since the analog picture is visibly inferior to the nice crisp digitial picture this bugs me alot
Here's what i tried so far:
- Changing driver from "nv" to "vesa" - Did not change anything
- Tried to tinker with Mandrakes tools - No option there to active DVI or dual-screen output
- Tried installing the Nvidia Drivers - Install works but the loading with "nvidia" driver fails with "(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!"
The Nvidia driver wouldnt compile without problems so i told it by command line to use the sources of my kernel 188.8.131.52 which solved the problem - So it certainly is compiled against the right source.
- Tried adding lines for TwinView to XF86Config using the nv driver. No success here, still no DVI picture.
I don't know any more i could do, can someone help me?
