TNT2 Max resolution & Xconfig
 
Hello,

I have old Nvidia TNT2 card (I have to use them for compatibility issue).
What is the best resolution those cards can do?

I would like to create an XFree config that would suit as many monitors out the on the market (LCD from 15inch 1024x768 to Widescreen LCD Resolution 1440 x 900 for example). How would you write the XFree config for such a situation?

Thanks for your time.

Claude

You shouldn't need to do anything special in your X configuration. 1440x900 might be possible, however without seeing a verbose X log (see the forum sticky posts), I couldn't say for certain.

I have not tried it yet... I will later tonight.

How would my Xf86config would look like?
At least for the Monitor section and the Mode section?

I have seen this on the web:

Subsection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "Native panel mode"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection

Is this argument supported in the Modes option? I have Xfree86 4.3.0

Thanks for your help

All that you should need to do is run nvidia-xconfig. Please see its man page and the driver README for more information.

What if I don't know what will be the monitor attached to it and wanted to use the maximum resolution the card can give me. Is there a wide range of setting or general options I could use?

I will not be able to run nvidia-xconfig once the "unknow"monitor is connected...


Thanks

You could use the nvidia-auto-select mode, as documented in the driver README.
