nForce2: "full screen" isn't
I'm running an nForce2 board with the IGP (and a single LCD display) and the binary drivers. When I run something full screen (mplayer, tuxracer, xawtv), I actually get a small area the size of the original window in the middle of an otherwise black screen.
Are you sure you're loading the XFree86-VidModeExtension X extension? You can check with xdpyinfo -- the last few screens of lines are info on visuals, and just before that is the list of loaded extensions. If you don't see XFree86-VidModeExtension listed there, then you don't have it loaded.
I'm not quite sure how to load it, but I think it has something to do with the SubSection "extmod" in your Section "Modules" in your XF86Config(-4) file. But check to see if it's loaded before trying to get it to load, obviously. ;)
I hadn't checked, but yes, it's in there:
number of extensions: 30
Hmm... I'm not sure then.
Just discovered I can get full-screen with mplayer by forcing the output protocol to xv (-vo=xv). It had been defaulting to X11.
Tried the same thing with xawtv, but it didn't work.
update, for those with the same problem: I figured out how to get xv output on xawtv. I had to load a "v4l" in the "Modules" section of my XF86Config-4. Evidently, this enables xvideo extensions for the v4l driver.
Oddly enough, when I run with xv enabled, and then I quit xawtv (or mplayer, or any other program viewing through my tv card), the audio from the tv card just keeps on going... very strange.
When i run xawtv -noxv, this doesn't happen (but of course I'm back to where I started, without fullscreen).
