no screens found, XFree86 with nvidia and 17" gateway monitor
Ok I just did a win98/Debian GNULinux dual install on my main PC. Its working great except I can't get into X yet. It's saying no screens found. Then above that error message where it has all the information output of what the program is doing, it says something like:
(EE) Screens found but none have usuable configuration.
I'm sorry, I would post what it actually says verbatim, but I'm not that familiar with linux yet... at least not enough to port the text back to windows in order to post it. I tried running xf86config twice using monitor settings (specs like h. and v. refresh and sync rates) I got from googling my monitor. The monitor in question is a Gateway 17" EV700. My video card is nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64.
The settings I've used are,
1024x768 @ 75Hz
I also attempted using lower settings with same problem. I have already downloaded the nvidia driver from their site and will burn it to cd then try running that. Maybe the driver will fix the issue. I have noticed a lot of talk about nvidia, so hopefully you guys can help me out too.
