Default Re: 9625 beta / some problems on Geforce 3 & Fedora 6

Really? It has worked at the full 1600x1200 resolution and 24-bit colour for the past two years or more, on Fedora Core 1, 3 and 5, with many different versions of the NVidia driver. In fact, even the current FC6 test installation and version 8774 of the driver do work correctly with Single Link TMDS, at the full resolution and colour depth of the display.

I get the colour corruption at any resolution when using the 9625 driver. I tried 1280x1024 at 16-bit colour, got the mangled colour, and wrote the bug report (attached). I also created the verbose version, but it is 222K and the forum refuses to upload it because of the size.

8774 does show colour correctly, using the same kernel version. I attached the bug report (normal size) for version 8774 at 1600x1200 / 24-bit for comparison.

I have a feeling that either there is a bug in 9625 or it is just plain out to get my display.
