Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 166276
xorg fails to load resolutions > 640x480 under DVI with flat panel
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:19 EST
Description of problem:
With an nVidia PCI video card using DVI output, I cannot achieve a resolution of
over 640x480 on a Dell FP2405 (widescreen). Xorg.0.log has lines like:
(II) NV(0): Mode "1920x1200" is larger than BIOS programmed panel size of 1024 x
(II) NV(0): Not using default mode "1920x1200" (unknown reason)
for every modeline with a resolution greater than 640x480 (!)
I am using redhat's "nv" driver, not the proprietary nvidia driver.
I am able to use these modelines with an analog VGA video card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install DVI video card, configure X to proper resolution
2. try to launch X
3. stare at ugly display in dismay
All pretty modelines were rejected, and the display was set at 640x480.
