BUG: EDID misdetection my Lenovo ThinkPad T61p
 
Hi all,

I've decided to give my question a try here.

I own a Lenovo ThinkPad T61p (Type: 6460-D8G) with a Nvidia Quadro FX570M. Whenever I run startx the nvidia driver doesn't detect my EDID properly, which greatly reduces the number of available resolutions to choose from. After having searched for various solutions and having posted a workaround myself, I still haven't had an answer related to the problem. At first I thought it was a laptop specific problem, but now I'm starting to doubt myself. As a temporary workaround I created a custom EDID which does give me the custom resolutions, but I don't see this as a permanent solution, seeing that things in the nvidia driver might that could cause the custom EDID to be unusable.

Things I've tried so far:
Updating to the latest BIOS version: no result
Booting different kernels: no result
Trying different drivers (including the latest 180.x series): no result

The LCD panel being used on my Lenovo ThinkPad T61p is a: LP154WU1

/var/log/Xorg.0.log gives me the following information:
Code:

Update: Okay, I've tried using the open source 2D nv driver and this does give me access to the 800x600 and 1024x768 resolutions, so this is definitely a bug in the nvidia driver. Please fix it!

When updating xorg-server to version 1.5 or 1.6 the issue also seems to occur with the nv driver...can anybody help me to permanently solve this bug?

Well known bug (maybe of Lenovo not of Nvidia)
