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.

Hardware

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 nvidia-bug-report.sh 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

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...22/+bug/152263

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.
