Re: NVidia binary driver wrongly has been displaying 50Hz since 9xxx drivers
Then the option is misnamed.
Users do not want, and should not be asked, to become xorg.conf and nVidia News Forum experts. Many things have been discussed before - but even I get confused by all the nVidia developments and options. And I am a developer. So in short you expect too much of users.
The defaults in the driver should be sensible for "most" users, not developers.
