Default Re: HDMI-DVI converted output to DVI display not working with 177.*

The 1.77 driver also can't save to xorg.conf, but at least maximizing and fullscreen work immediately after applying the settings. So until this is fixed I'm afraid I will have to reboot to windows to use the HDMI output of my laptop . Any help on how to get HDMI working with 1.77 would be greatly appreciated.
Sounds like a weird xorg.conf. Could you post it? Did you also run nvidia-settings as root?
