Description of problem:
I've so far been unsuccessful getting this monitor to work at all. It's an
LCD monitor and I'm attempting to get it to work with a GEForce 3 vid card.
The vid card was recognized at install time, and I was able to select the
appropriate monitor. However, when it starts the x server, it looks like an
old staticy tv.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH 8
2. Select Dell 1702fp
Actual Results: Monitor either goes into power save mode, or is just fuzzy
Expected Results: X windows setup program should start
The "nv" driver does not support DVI flat panel displays at all. You must
use a CRT display with Nvidia hardware if you're using the "nv" driver
included with XFree86. To use DVI panels, you need to use Nvidia's
proprietary drivers, which are not supported by us.
