Default Re: Problems with 1.0-9631 on Geforce4 420 Go

Thanks orlo11 it worked great!

as a recap of what I had to do to get this to work:


Toshiba Satellite 1415-s173
Debian Etch RC2 / Xfce4
Vanilla Kernel + minor patches
Nvidia 1.0-9631

After installing everything, including the nvidia driver, I edited xorg.conf and added/changed the following under "section device:"

Driver "nvidia" #This is changed from Driver "nv"
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"

I started X and used nvidia-settings to get the edid info as stated above in orlo11's post.
Personally I used ghex to edit the file and saved it as edid.bin in the xorg.conf directory.
With ghex I was able to open the file and use goto to locate offset 56 &58, this made it snap to do.

Then I edited xorg.conf again and added, under section device, this:

Option "CustomEDID" "DFP-0:/etc/X11/edid.bin"

restartx and it works great!!!!!!!!!
Thank you again orlo11, I had been working on this off and on for some months and tried all the other hints and tricks with no luck, this worked great. I did have to add DFP-0 in the customedid line for my laptop.
