16:10 tft with fx5200 not working
 
hi

i got a new toshiba satellite m30 with a built in fx5200 and a built in 16:10 tft monitor. i tried for weeks to find a useable configuration for XFree but it simply doesnt work.

the nvidia driver works perfectly with 1024x768 but as i try to change the to 1280x800 this error occurs in the log file:

snip

(II) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "1280x800" (no mode of this name)

snip

i tried to set up some modelines with 'gtf' (man gtf) and also tried to switch my framebufferconsole to 1280x800 - no success :(

please send me any clues, tips or hints. relies are more than appreciated!

How to get 1280x800 with toshiba M30 and Red Hat 9
 
i found how to get the 1280x800 resolution on my Toshiba M30-154 !!!!

i installed the latest driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run)

the most important thing is to set the correct monitor section in the XF86Config

if someone has the same computer and know some tricks
to get linux working. please reply, mail me, contact me.

i have problems with modem!
i don't know how to scale cpu frequency, manage battery
and so on....

(i also have problems with the english language cause i'm italian
so don't care about errors........)




i posted also the whole XF86Config that works well with
my RedHat 9 installation (remember that i use the italian keyboard).
I hope that it works with other distro.
