Please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 6
and then generate a new bug report.
hi lonnie---if this card were single-link, this would make me a rather unhappy camper, but the fault would then presumably lie with MSI, not with nvidia. is there a way to definitively learn whether the card is only single-link? when I call them up, they will probably give me a schpiel about how they only understand windows, and it must be my linux installation that is at fault.
another curiosity: I am enclosing the revised nvidia bug report. alas, the error almost suggests that its the monitor's fault, not the graphics card's fault.
