xrandr reports wrong refresh rates for nvidia closed-source driver system
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:11:20 EDT
Description of problem:
The available refresh rates show for a specific resolution in xrandr do
not correspond to the true refresh rates as identified by the nvidia
closed-source driver UI configuration app "nvidia-settings".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[yates@localhost ~]$ xrandr -v
Server reports RandR version 1.3
On my system, very reproducible.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F11 x86-64
2. Install akmod-nvidia, reboot
3. run xrandr and observe output:
[yates@localhost ~]$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 2048 x 1536, maximum 2048 x 1536
default connected 2048x1536+0+0 0mm x 0mm
2048x1536 50.0 51.0 52.0 53.0 104.0*
1920x1440 54.0 55.0 56.0
1856x1392 57.0 58.0
1792x1344 59.0 60.0
1600x1200 61.0 62.0 63.0 64.0 65.0
1400x1050 66.0 67.0
1280x1024 68.0 69.0 70.0
1280x960 71.0 72.0
1024x768 74.0 75.0 76.0 77.0 78.0
800x600 80.0 81.0 82.0 83.0 84.0 85.0
700x525 87.0 88.0
640x480 89.0 90.0 91.0 92.0 93.0 94.0
512x384 97.0 98.0 99.0
320x240 101.0 102.0
The nvidia-settings driver allows refresh rates of 80/75/60 Hz for 2048x1536 resolution, as
supported by the Philips 202P4 monitor I am using.
An 80, 75, and 60 Hz refresh rate would be permitted.

Summary : Akmod package for nvidia kernel module(s)
URL : http://www.nvidia.com/
License : Redistributable, no modification permitted
Description: This package provides the akmod package for the nvidia kernel modules.
Note that apparently gnome-display-properties relies on xrandr, so it also reports the incorrect refresh rates.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
