Resolution Issue


My goal is to get 1440x900 resolution on my new suse install. I've been through alot with editing the xorg.conf file before with ubuntu installations but this one has me hanging. I've tried all the configurations within yast, sax, etc. I did some manual editing and I can now at least get to a 1152x864 resolution which is better than when I was stuck on a worse one. Anyhow, the resolution will not change from 1152x864 anymore. Here is my xorg.conf file:

Suggestion visit the Nvidia site to get Linux drivers for your graphics interface:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Be sure and read the instructions for SuSE before starting.

I've used the envy utility before for my ubuntu drivers. It auto detected my graphics card and downloaded/installed the correct driver. Is this something I could also use for SuSe?

The instructions are on nVidia's site, they even have directions for SuSe!! I have no idea about using the envy utility with SuSe.
