Question 16:9 Displays 1280x768 1360x768 and rotation


seems that we have a lot of trouble running NVIDIA-Cards at "native" Resolutions of >32" TFT & Plasma screens.
Environment is SuSE 9.2 Pro and the NVIDIA 32bit Driver 1.0-8178
Different PCs, Geforce 5200FX && Geforce 6600GT tested.

---> see .zip file
We set the resolution to 1360x768 Pixel, but Samsung MP 400P & LG L3200 show a Resolution of 1024x768 at their infopage in the OSD. To calculate the modeline we run:
xmode -r (Rate) -x 1360 -y 768
Rate is f.e. 60 fpr 60Hz
To check it we run
xdpyinfo | grep dimensions it shows "1360x768".
By inspecting the /var/log/XFree86.0.log there is the followin section:
(**) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes for display device CRT-0:
(**) NVIDIA(0):      Mode "1360x768": 81.8 MHz, 46.1 kHz, 58.0 Hz
So I think that everything shall be all right but OSD claims to get only "1024x768" .

If we now add
Option "Rotate" "left"
we have a total systemcrash. nothing works anymore. only hard on/off helps, but even now it only boots to runlevel #3 (no X) and freezes again. Runlevel #1 & #2 work ...
