Cool Re: black line on right side

I am also having this problem with my Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 running Fedora Core 2. I can eliminate the blank strip by changing the driver name from "nvidia" back to "nv" in the xorg.config file. The only trade off is that I lose my GLX extension support, which means no cool OpenGL screensavers or games. Which I suppose is an ok trade off since I do not need those benefits in my corporate environment, but it would be nice to have a legitimate fix for the issue. I have installed the latest drivers, made all suggested changes in the xorg.config file per the NVIDIA Readme page, and even tried changing the Horizonal Sync Rate and Vertical Refresh Rate.

The other thing I did was remove the rivafb support that reportedly conflicts with the NVIDIA drivers.

I am running 1024 x 768 with 24bit color depth.
