resolution issue
this is really wierd for me, i had slackware installed last week, and was trying to install a different distro, but when i went back to slackware 10 this time, i cant get my resolution to go higher than 1024x768, my xorg.conf file is set to have the default resolution at 1800x1400 but its not working

here is a link to my xorg.conf file maybe one of you guys can spot my problem

# **********************************************************************
# Graphics device section

# Any number of graphics device sections may be present

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Geforce 4 mx"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    #VideoRam    4096
    # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate

I'm not positive, since I'm not at my machine at work, but I want to say that I used:

Driver  "nv"
For my GeForce2 mx. I think I put the video ram in there too, but that probably doesn't make a difference...

Probably wouldn't hurt to give that a shot...

no no.. to get the card working correctly on any other version of linux, and all the how-to's i've read you need to set the driver to "nvidia" after you install the .run from the nvidia website, the "nv" driver is for the "default" nvidia card, no openGL or anything

i'm still trying to get my dual monitors working tho, i'm half thinking of messing with my fedora install, and making it "create" a dual monitor xorg.conf file.. then see what it did.. and change it back..

i'll let you know what i find out, later today (when i get home from work)

okay, well, I didn't install the nvidia drivers, because I don't need anything fancy on that machine, and mine was acting the same way (ie. wouldn't go to 1280x1024), and that fixed my problem...
