Read this one please NVidia: it's almost working
I've also tried the options
modprobe nvidia NVreg_Mobile=1 NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0 (with the 4496 driver)
and get the same results as those above: horizontally I can see everything but all squashed into 3/4 or so of the screen width; vertically stretched so that the bottom 1/3 maybe is missing. Almost seems to me like the driver has vertical and horizontal confused or something (i.e. it seems to have swapped the width and height)....
Really seems like we're close here!
Andy M. or someone from NVidia: does this seem like something we can fix with configuration options (new modelines, etc.) or are should we just all wait for the next driver release???
I attach my /var/log/XFree.0.log file (produced with startx -- -logverbose 5) for this configuration.
