ViewSonic VX2025WM + Asus EN7900GT Top, DVI + Widescreen = no go
I have been having a problem for a while now. Let me start off by saying that I can successfully connect my 7900GT to my monitor using the DVI port and cable, and have it work in 1680x1050, ONLY if I use the nv driver instead of the nvidia driver. That said, if I connect the DVI cable to my monitor and to the card, I will always get an orange "Out of Range" on the monitor and I will have to kill the X server with a ctrl+alt+backspace. The weird thing is that I had a 7800 working with the nvidia driver before with DVI in the resolution, and I can use my 7900 with DVI as long as I choose a non widescreen resolution such as 1280x1024. This leads me to suspect that the problem is specific with my specific card, my specific monitor, and the nvidia driver (since nv seems to work correctly).
Hardware details (more can be seen in the bug report):
ASUS EN7900GT TOP
AMD64 X2 4200+
ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe
SuSE 10.1 (x86_64)
NVIDIA Linux x86_64 Kernel Module 1.0-8774
Please let me know if you need more information. Right now I am using the analog adapter to run 1680x1050, and this works. If I use DVI, it will always say "Out of Range", unless I use the nv driver.
