View Full Version : nvidia Solaris driver paints screen larger than monitor

If I set the driver to 'nv' in xorg.conf, it displays correctly. If I set the driver to 'nvidia', the screen gets painted larger than my monitor. It does not pan. With the driver set to 'nv', none of the nvidia extensions work. With it set to 'nvidia' all of the extensions work, but the screen is too large. Any suggestions? The resolution, and horizontal sync + vertical refresh are set correctly in xorg.conf

Not sure if you got this, so here it is again...

The bug report that you posted indicates that you're using the 'nv' X driver, and not the 'nvidia' X driver.

Yes, Lonni. As I stated in the original post, the 'nv' driver works, but there is no support for nvidia extensions, like glm. If I enable the 'nvidia' driver in xorg.conf, the extensions are available, but the screen is painted larger than my monitor. I have attached a newer version of the log file, taken with 'nvidia' specified in the xorg.conf, for comparison's sake.

Thanks,

Is this a Toshiba Tecra laptop you're using? If so, what you're reporting is a known bug, and will be resolved in the next driver release.

Thanks,
Lonni

Yes, its a Tecra M3. I wish I could have seen that bug earlier -- I've been banging my head over this for two days. Thanks. When can I expect the next release to be available, and can I be notified? I have many associates with Tecra M3's -- I'm sure they would be happy to know.
