Default NVS 295 + DP->VGA + 185.18.14 -> problems

Hi,

I'm a quite seasoned user of X-Window. I installed a new HP xw4600 with a NVS 295 (I've got other xw400 working fine with NVS 280 and FX 570). The NVS 295 is a card with a DisplayPort, and as my KVMs are VGA, I bought a DisplayPort to VGA adapter. I downloaded the latest binary driver (185.18.14). I tried kernel 2.6.27.24 and 2.6.30.1 on Debian Lenny. I tried two monitors, a HP LP2035 (LCD 1600x1200) and a HP f2105 (1680x1050).
In both cases, I get only 640x480 resolution.
And the Xorg.0.log report some suspicious errors...

I suspect that somehow the DisplayPort to VGA adapter is not recognised and prevent the card to talk properly to the monitor.

This is a quick extract of the log for the LP2035 and the f2105 :

I assume that it's just that the hardware is too new. Good luck figuring that one out ;-)
