Re: nvidia driver kernel 2.6.9 667



Guy,

My C840 does 1600x1200 with no problem.  I noticed that you are still
loading DRI in your xorg.conf.  Unless the Nvidia driver has changed
recently this is supposed to be off, FWIW.

This is a stippit from my xorg.conf on Monitor.

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "Dell 1600x1200 Laptop Display Panel"
        HorizSync    31.5 - 90.0
        VertRefresh  59.0 - 85.0
        Option      "dpms"
EndSection


Note the VertRefresh, it has to be higher than 60hz to allow 1600x1200,
or X will not validate that configuration.

Best,

Steve
