Default Re: FX5500 in Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid problems

173 wouldn't do a wide screen. Only 96 would .. none will rotate (they did in Gutsy)

the weirdest xorg I have ever seen

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Option "RandRotation" "on" ((((I added this line))))

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"

xorg.conf2 and xorg.conf3 look like the real deal, though.
BUT IF I try and make either of them straight ahead xorg.conf. by doing a copy/paste and re-boot .. get no display and have to run a repair boot and re-install the 96 driver.

again, the equipment:
Nvidia 5500 card
HP LP2465 Cinema display.
ATTEMPTING to use 8.10

as an added note .. I have three computers I updated and NONE will rotate now, whereas ALL rotated using Gutsy and the drivers therein. So it IS the driver/kernel issue.
