Description Horst H. von Brand 2004-07-12 16:50:25 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
This is a Toshiba M-30 notebook with above card and 1280x768 screen
(16:10). There seems to be no way to configure the screen with the
standard modules, the nVidia module handles it without a hitch.

Also, the text console is distorted.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure X
2.No "1280x768" option, hacking the configuration file by hand as per
Google only gives errors

Actual Results:  1024x768 configuration only, distorted screen

Expected Results:  Maximal configuration.

1280x768 isn't a standardized video mode, so the X server probably
isn't aware of it.  You can configure it manually yourself if you
like by using a video mode timing calculator such as the one at:


Note however that Red Hat does not support Nvidia's proprietary
drivers.  You can report the problem to X.Org in their bugzilla
at http://bugs.freedesktop.org against the "xorg" component if
you would like future X.Org releases to support this video mode
automatically.  I recommend submitting a pre-calculated modeline
in your upstream report also which follows the VESA GTF spec,
and it will likely get included in X.Org 6.8.0 which will be
released in a few months.

If you paste your freedesktop.org bug report URL here, we will
track the upstream bug report for you, and consider including
any changes they accept into X.Org.

My mistake, sorry. The screen is 1280x800, and works fine.
