Default Re: 8600gt, Ubuntu and DVI

Hi , i have a similar problem with my 8600GT and Linux drivers

I have done a clean install of Ubuntu 7.10 , used the restricted drivers manager to install the restricted Nvidia drivers, but when i try and use them i get no display , regardless of using DVI or Analog cables.

My 8600GT has 2x DVI ports on it.


Biostar NF4 Chipset MB Socket 939
Jetway 8600GT
2gb Ram
"generic" 1280x1024 LCD panel

Note : everything works fine in XP ( i hate dual booting )

I have attached two log files generated by the script

one when using the Nvidia Restricted driver, and the other using the generic "nv" driver that comes with Ubuntu by default.

I have also posted other info in this thread on the Ubuntu Bugs page

it has output from lspci -vvv, xorg.log files, xorg.conf files , output from the "screens and graphics" applet after trying to test the Nvidia driver and having it fail.
