the desktop screen doesn't fit with monitor space area


Hello:

I've got:
SO: Suse 10
Graphic card: RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro
Nvidia driver version: 1.0-7174 [from legacy; the latest sopported. Before installing the driver I removed some nvidia related files and directories.]

It goes right, but:

1/ No Nvidia splash at boot time.
2/ When i boot the system the desktop screen doesn't fit with monitor space area.

It's easy to fix that with sax2; or leaving the monitor enter the power serving mode; when coming back to life everything fits.

Where is the problem? How con I know the exact start pattern used by Suse 10?
I supposed the problem is something related to the glx libraries, because I had not this kind of problems with Suse 9.1

Thanks, Agustín


PD: from /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
BoardName "RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Screen 0
VendorName "NVidia"
EndSection

just sounds like your monitor. if it's fine when it comes out of sleep, sound slike it's not automatically adjusting itself or something.

Last year, with Suse 9.1 and Mandrake 10, I never had that problem. It was easier to install the nvidia driver and always appeared de Nvidia logo during boot up.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion, Agustín.

Same problem, HELP!!

I've installed PCLinux, Suse 10.1, and Madriva 2007 PowerPack all with the same problem. Everything looks REALLY big and doesn't fit the monitor space.

Please help...

I solved the problem reinstalling the Nividia driver.
