SOLUTION: xorg.conf for Dell Latitude D800 WUXGA
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi,

I have a Dell Latitude D800 laptop with a WUXGA 1920 x 1200 LCD display. I had trouble getting Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL 4) to work properly, until I got a modified xorg.conf file from RedHat Support. The full file is at http://pastebin.com/890183 , the relevant sections (different from default) are:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You are using "nv" driver. which is not the official driver for nvidia. In other word, there's no point in posting your result here :D.
