Resolution only works if it is the only one specified.
I am trying to run my 19" crt at 1400x1050, as 1600 is too much and 1280 isn't enough for my taste. Also, I want other (lesser) resolutions to be available to various applications, like games.
When I say this:
X starts at a real and virtual resolution of 1400x1050, I have confirmed by looking at images with specific pixel sizes. However, when I say this, in order, I think, to enable other applications access to more modes:
Modes "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" <etc>
X starts at a real resoltuion of 1280x1024 and a virtual resolution of 1400x1050.
What's just insane is when I say this:
Modes "1400x1050" "400x300"
X starts at a real resolution of **400x300*** and of course virtual res of 1400x1050.
So, the point is, I know the driver *CAN* generate timings for 1400x1050 that it likes. At least when it's the only thing it can choose from. How do I make it do it even when I want to enable other resolutions for various apps to use?
Debian, 2.4.26 kernel. Using debian packaged nvidia driver.
(Have 2 other debian/2.4/amd rigs with various TNT/Gf cards for testing, too)
The attached config and log are just from the last try, like the second snippet above.
