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

I'm also using Ubuntu 8.10 and have minimal options in xorg.conf and saving xorg.conf works fine here. Try posting it and let's see if it can be worked out...
This is my xorg.conf at the moment, but as I told before: Fixing the problem that 173 gives doesn't really solve anything for me. There is no HDMI audio, so using windows when I want to watch a video works better for me until this problem in 177 is fixed.

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
        Driver          "nvidia"

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Monitor         "Configured Monitor"
        Device          "Configured Video Device"
        Option          "PixmapCacheSize" "5000000"
        Option          "AllowSHMPixmaps" "0"
I'm quite sure that PixmapCacheSize and AllowSHMPixmaps are supposed to go in the Device section and not in Screen.
