Default Re: openSUSE 10.2 - NVidia driver disables 1280x1024 resolution

Ok, the problem seems to be this ...

(--) NVIDIA(0): --- EDID for Samsung (CRT-0) ---
(--) NVIDIA(0): EDID Version : 1.1
(--) NVIDIA(0): Manufacturer : SAM
(--) NVIDIA(0): Monitor Name : Samsung
(--) NVIDIA(0): Product ID : 24662
(--) NVIDIA(0): 32-bit Serial Number : 0
(--) NVIDIA(0): Serial Number String :
(--) NVIDIA(0): Manufacture Date : 1998, week 15
(--) NVIDIA(0): DPMS Capabilities : Standby Suspend Active Off
(--) NVIDIA(0): Prefer first detailed timing : No
(--) NVIDIA(0): Supports GTF : No
(--) NVIDIA(0): Maximum Image Size : 300mm x 230mm
(--) NVIDIA(0): Valid HSync Range : 30 kHz - 61 kHz
(--) NVIDIA(0): Valid VRefresh Range : 50 Hz - 75 Hz
(--) NVIDIA(0): EDID maximum pixel clock : 80.0 MHz
(--) NVIDIA(0):

Above is the EDID data for my monitor and it says that the Maximum pixel clock is 80 MHz, but the Samsung website says that the Max Pixel clock is 140MHz.

As a result it disables the Native resolution of my monitor ...

(II) NVIDIA(0): Validating Mode "1280x1024":
(II) NVIDIA(0): 1280 x 1024 @ 60 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0): Mode Source: X Server
(II) NVIDIA(0): Pixel Clock : 108.00 MHz
(II) NVIDIA(0): HRes, HSyncStart : 1280, 1328
(II) NVIDIA(0): HSyncEnd, HTotal : 1440, 1688
(II) NVIDIA(0): VRes, VSyncStart : 1024, 1025
(II) NVIDIA(0): VSyncEnd, VTotal : 1028, 1066
(II) NVIDIA(0): H/V Polarity : +/+
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Mode is rejected: PixelClock (108.0 MHz) too high for EDID
(WW) NVIDIA(0): (EDID Max: 80.0 MHz).

Now this is where the nVidia driver has gone wrong ...


(WW) NVIDIA(0): Mode is rejected: PixelClock (108.0 MHz) too high for EDID
(WW) NVIDIA(0): (EDID Max: 80.0 MHz).


Now how do I tell the driver that the this resolution is OK ? I have tried mode lines, but to no avail . . .

thanks,
Amogh
