GeForce FX 5200 maximum resolution
 
I have just installed a 256 MB GeForce FX 5200 board on my Linux box, which is running Slackware 10.2 with a 2.6.13 kernel and X.Org 6.8.2.

When I launch X windows using the nv driver (shipped with X.Org software) the resolution of my X display is 1920x1440, at 24 bpp.

However, when I use the Nvidia driver nvidia (in its latest incarnation, 1.0-8756 for x86 Linux) this driver refuses to go beyond 1280x1024 at such depth.

My attempts to coax it into using this resolution/depth, by inserting the appropriate Modes line in my xorg.conf file, are just rejected as invalid modes by the nvidia driver when launching X windows.

The monitor that I am using is an HP p920 which, like I said, supports a 1920x1440 resolution at 24 bpp. Why is it the case that the X.Org driver nv supports this resolution/depth combination, whereas Nvidia's so far does not? Is there a way around this?

I have that problem too, with slack, X.org 6.9.0 and NV8756. The only way i found to pass this is to add the line Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidModes" in the device section

Though I'm not using Xorg I had similar problems with
Slackware 9.1/XFree86. The nvidia driver just didn't seem
to care about my modelines or any resolution not standard
with the monitor.

Though I wasn't trying to get a larger resolution like you
I found I had to create a uniquely(sp?) named mode
just to get my old modeline to work.

See this thread here.

I remember trying what the other post said about
"ModeValidation" and "NoEdidModes" options but they didn't
seem to work for me.

Your language suggests that you are a spam bot. Why are you answering dead threads with SUPER general and vague posts?

Perhaps for the sake of promoting something, or another part of an SEO spammer.. I guess..

You got it right.. There has been an issue about this, and there are some web masters who have already implemented a spam application or something.. Not sure what it is, but it automatically detects IP address, and bans that IP from posting again..

Did I get it right there i s a bot who can instantly delete spammers' Ip address? What if they use a proxy will the banned IP still be able to post comments on certain sites? I have a site and I keep on receiving spam messages.. at first I thought that it was a great review of my work but i keep on receiving that same message over and over again. this is not good for my site right?

Well, at one point, it is a nice thing for your website, because your site may have a high PR.. On the other hand, it is not a good indication, because the quality of your website may be jeoparidized..
