refresh rate of monitor
1 Attachment(s)

I am running Mandriva 2007 PowerPack.

After upgrading drivers to version 9631 (GeForce FX 5200) I can have only 50 MHz refresh rate (1024*768).

Using default drivers 8774 I can have without any difficuly 1024*768 at 85 MHz on my monitor - that is Flatron 795FT Plus.

I wanted to upgrade drivers in order to be able to launch AIGLX & 3d desktop.

As you can imagine 50MHz rate is extremely difficult and harmful to work with.

I can't change it using mcc nor modifying xorg.conf.

I will realy appreciate a lot someone help!! I am attaching the bug report, xorg.conf & dmesg

My best regards,

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep nvidia

Re: refresh rate of monitor
How or where are you determining that you're getting 50Hz?

If this problem persists with 1.0-9746, please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 6

and then generate a new bug report.

Please find attached bug report. Report has been generated just after driver installation. I run the driver installation package in init 3 mode.

I am using KDE desktop. Can check it on KDesktop configuration (right click on screen and select proper tab).

I have revised myself bug report and noticed something that puzzled me a little bit
When building kernel folowing warning has appeared. In fact there are some other

WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-2.6.17-5mdv/Module.symvers
is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.

Do I properly installed driver? Or I miss something? In xorg.log I' ve noticed so subdirectory nvidia does not longer exist. GLX is loaded anyway. Of course I can erase the line in xorg config file to avoid that error, but maybe that is a hint?

(II) LoadModule: "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia/libglx.so" (glx)
(WW) LoadModule: given non-canonical module name "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia/libglx.so"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia/libglx.so
(EE) Unable to open /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia/libglx.so
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia/libglx.so" (open failed, 2)
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so

I have also played a little bit with modelines in xorg conf and see so can establish different refresh rate but not the requested one, usually there are about 50-60 Mhz which is still not satisfactory.

The most promising one was
Modeline "1024x768@85" 94.50 1024 1072 1168 1376 768 769 772 808 +HSync +Vsync

After some other modeline modification I've notice the error in some log so monitor is going to use auto nvidia refresh line 1024*768 50 Mhz.

As you have more experience I am sure can help me to get requested 1024 768 85 Mhz.

Looking forward to hear from you
My best regards,

It's unbelievable but I am running 1024 768 85 Mhz. I did it all the time!

Just I've chcecked specs of my monitor and learned so pressing OSD button in front panel will present me horizontal and vertical refresh rate.
I see 68,7kHz/ 85,0Hz, while KDE says so I am running now with 50 Hz. I made several different settings in KDE. Monitor reacted accordingly, but every time there was a bias about 30 Hz between KDE and monitor refresh value.

When using drivers 8774 there was no bias.

I am sorry for bothering you. Thanks for your kind reply.

I would appreciate so you will tell me what that warning means

WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-2.6.17-5mdv/Module.symvers
is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.

Just in case I am sending the latest bug report

My best regards,

Re: refresh rate of monitor
This is a KDE bug (misreporting of the refresh rate). The warning you posted is harmless with respect to NVIDIA driver functionality.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 03:38 PM.
