Default Re: Nvidia 5200 and wide screen

The screen neatly returns a usable mode:

(--) NVIDIA(0): 1360 x 768 @ 60 Hz
(--) NVIDIA(0): Pixel Clock : 85.50 MHz
(--) NVIDIA(0): HRes, HSyncStart : 1360, 1424
(--) NVIDIA(0): HSyncEnd, HTotal : 1536, 1792
(--) NVIDIA(0): VRes, VSyncStart : 768, 771
(--) NVIDIA(0): VSyncEnd, VTotal : 777, 795
(--) NVIDIA(0): H/V Polarity : +/+

But the NVIDIA driver says:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Assigned Display Device: DFP-0
(II) NVIDIA(0): Requested modes:
(II) NVIDIA(0): "1360x768"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "1920x1080"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "1024x768"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "800x600"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "640x480"
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1360x768"; removing.


Somehow, in the latest releases, NVIDIA has built in some checks that make it reject the modes that the panel itself has provided and/or that the user has provided via Modelines.
I think it is ridiculous. But it does not seem to be going away.
So, you will have to put the Option commands in your config to disable those checks.
