Default Lame SuSE 8.2 & DVI Flat Panel/X11/NV sucks


For everyone with a DVI flatpanel having problems with NVIDIA driver under X11 and SuSE 8.2

1) init 3 to get sax2 working
2) keep manufacturer disc near

Those lamers (SuSE) everytime forget the correct hardwareprobing.
Here is my XF86Config (put it change it in /etc/X11):


Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce4 Ti 4200"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Option "FlatPanelProperties"
Option "NoLogo" # no advertisements
Option "NoRenderAccel" # fixes bug with difficult cipsets
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP" # sets flat panel as default
Option "NvAGP" "3" # probes correct AGP driver
Screen 0
Option "Rotate" "off"
VendorName "NVidia"


Keep the rest, like SuSE or Sax2 suggests it.

If you got a manufacturer CD copy the files to the root directory of a blank floppy disk and let sax2 import the values via the manufacturer disc option.

If you got DVI anyway your monitor will only support 60 Hz refresh rate.

If you use SAX you should have both DVI and CRT connected if SAX does not identify your DVI port!
After configuring you should have no problems!

Now have fun with 3d and DVI!


P.S.: Try Gnome and forget the disfunctional Hardware probe of SuSE 8.2 under KDE!
