Re: problem with X-4.3 + flat panels using dvi cables and nvidia graphics card
After having said all of this, I "discovered" a work-around for the problem:
Just use the analog port on the card/monitor and connecting analog cable. When you want the X-windows graphics mode, push the button on the monitor to use the dvi port. When you want the vga console mode, push the button to use the svga port.
However, I did not see anywhere in the docs / manuals about using both ports simultaneously on the card and the same monitor. Lot's people are using two monitors (twinview), but I have not seen this. I was concerned at first that I might somehow damage the monitor. So, I just took the chance and it works !
