Thin Blue Line - 6100 with FC9 & 1280x1024
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have a problem, not the only one either, that when using the nvidia driver (latest) on fedora core 9 (in my case x86_64) with 6100 and a acer AL1714 (and hp 17 inch) which has a native resolution of 1280x1024, the screen starts up with a single line of pixels visible at the top (x appears to actually be working) and the rest of the screen black.

I can use CTRL-ALT-+/- to change to another resolution eg 1280x960 but thats just not optimum..

I have attached a archive with some verbose x-logs and the configs used to create this..

I had the driver working perfectlly in fedora 8, but 9 just wont work as it should..

You can also see the discussiuon we have been having on the fedora forums at

I had a similar problem with the same card: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=115209

I couldn't find a decent solution except going back to an old version of the driver (169.12). I could also say on this settings and driver, the KDE4 performance are really really poor (while compiz on gnome is working ok)

Looks like the latest version doesnt fix it either??

Nvidia people - any answer?

:(

thank you for the information, so I won't update to the latest driver if it's useless for our problem...

I hope they will find a solution, because the driver was working well before that.

Hi,

just wanted to tell you that I have exactly the same problem. Having an AMD64 with Geforce 6100 I just get one line of pixels when logging in. Other Videomodes,except 1280x1024, working, nv-driver working. As a Workaround I also user the 169.12 drivers. But now I'm on Kernl 2.6.26 and the kernel module from that old driver doesn't compile any longer.

I'd be extremly grateful for a solution for this problem.

Kind Regards
Michael

Still the same Problems here with latest Beta (177.67). Going crazy!

Has someone already found a workaround for this issue?

There is a new beta, which appears from their description fixes a lot of problems to do with 6xxx chips.. will hopefully have time to try it tonight..

Hi Mathew,

like I wrote already in Thread http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=115209, the newest drivers didn't fix it for me either.

Can you describe what kind of Hardware you have, so that we may find a pattern.
I use the following:
AMD 64x2 with native 64Bit drivers, An embedded GeForce 6100 and a resolution of 1280x1024. Do you have a similar setup??

Kind Regards
Michael

basically identical hardware to you - amd athlon 64 x2, onboard nv 6100 and 1280x1024 lcd monitor (acer AL 1714)..

Re: Thin Blue Line - 6100 with FC9 & 1280x1024
 
Hi Mathew,

you are using the 64Bit drivers then, or having a 32Bit System installed?

Kind Regards
Michael
