Default Re: Argh! Help! Is LCD scaling still broken in 8762?

If I understand your problem correctly, a 640x480 screen stays centered within your LCD rather than scaling to fill the panel?

I just upgraded to the new driver today, and all resolutions stretch to fill my 17" DVI panel on my GeForce 6150.

I'm running Xgl right now, so nvidia-settings doesn't work for me--I can't tell you anything about that.

I won't be able to post anything until tomorrow at least, but let me know what specific information about my setup you think would be helpful, and I'll do what I can.
No. It scales to full screen. It's not SUPPOSED to do that if I have "fixed aspect" or "centered" scaling enabled. If you scale an 800x600 image to full screen on a 1280x1024 LCD, the image will become distorted because it is out of aspect.

If you set "fixed aspect" in nvidia settings, it should scale to full screen, with black bars on the top and bottom. Mine scales full screen regardless, but it used to work in an older version of the drivers.

Sorry, I'm very impatient and frusturated, mainly because ive been waiting for working drivers for well over half a year.

I have the following options

Old driver - xorg lockups, working LCD scaling, meh performance, working overclocking

Driver before last - massive memory leak, broken overclocking, working LCD scaling, meh performance

last driver/this driver - no memory leak, working overclocking, broken lcd scaling, better performance

Unless I'm just setting something wrong...

If you can go into nvidia-settings, and set centered or aspect scaled lcd scaling, and then drop your resolution below native, and if it scales properly(with the black bars, or just a box in the screen if centered is selected), can you give me your xorg config?
