Option IgnoreEDID not working


I'm using X.org 6.8.1 and using the nv driver I can get 1400x1050 with my monitor which is what I should be able to get, using the nvidia driver I max out at 1280x1024. When I try putting Option IgnoreEDID in my xorg.conf file I gert knocked back to 640x480 but there's no obvious errors in the Xorg.0.log file either Any ideas as this is driving me crazy, with the nv drivers and compositing it's not even usable which sucks so I don't really want to just give up on 3d accel..

Thanks for any help

Could you post your xorg.conf file?

You might not have that setup right...

Subsection "Display"
...
.
Modes "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x400"
EndSubsection

You should edit all of the Display subsections by adding the "Modes" option. At least, that is what I would do.

Also, I don't think you are supposed to have this line under the Module section:

Load "dri"

I commented load dri but I still have the same problems as before. And I didn't add it under all the Display options because if I change nvidia to nv I get 1400x1050 straight up, it's just with the nvidia driver that I don't.
