twinview problems with FC6 (2.6.20 kernel) and 9631 driver
 
3 Attachment(s)
After upgrading my FC6 kernel to a 2.6.20 variant and updating the nvidia driver to 9631 (previous 8776 driver not supported on this kernel version), my second DFP monitor on my Dell Inspiron 8500 laptop (using GeForce4 card) does not display correctly. Looks similar to what one previous poster referred to as a "colormap" issue, with wierd colors and very fuzzy/ mostly unreadable test.

As an expirement, I applied a patch that I found here that allows the installation of the 8776 driver on 2.6.20 kernels and (without any other changes) second monitor works perfectly. Seems like something has changed in 9631 to break this.

I've attached the bug report scripts from 9631, 8776 for comparison purposes. I know others have been reporting similar issues with 9631. Any plans on fixing it or is it effectively no longer maintained?

Any updates as to why 9631 driver isn't working in this situation?

Just downloaded/installed 96.39 and problem still persists. Second monitor unusable with the 96xx drivers. Would love to get off the hacked 8776 drivers so I can try out beryl and such.

Thanks. Using a VGA cable does indeed resolve the issue.

Is anyone from nvidia looking at why connections via DVI no longer work correctly? Is this a kernel bug in 2.6.20 or something in the 96xx nvidia drivers?

"Is this a kernel bug in 2.6.20 or something in the 96xx nvidia drivers?"

It's not 2.6.20, since I'm seeing the 96xx color problem with DVI+2.6.18 (on a GeForce 3).
