Default Re: can't get 2560x1600 (freebsd 7.0, nv, 8500gt, hp lp3065)

Hi Rusty,

Thanks for your help!

I am able to start X with 4G. startx gives the freebsd default TWM window manager in 1280x800. Here is the result of xrandr -q:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 1280
VGA1 disconnected
DVI0 connected 1280x800+0+0 641mm x 400mm
1280x800 59.9*
1024x768 60.0
800x600 60.3
640x480 59.9
512x384 120.0
VGA2 disconnected

I'm also able to get kde up...but at the ugly 1280x800 mode.

As to how I got it seems to work this far without any configuration whatsoever. That is, I can run startx with or without an xorg.conf file and I get this far. In fact the modelines in my xorg.conf file seem to be ignored. This is the problem (I think).
