Default TFT being detected as CRT?

Hi,

my new Samtron 94B arrived a few days ago, I'm happy with it. I had to tweak very little in the XF86Config file to select it's perfect display mode 1280x1024_60.

But one thing came to my attention: In the log (in my case XFree86.0.log) the display is reported as beeing an CRT device.

(--) NVIDIA(0): Interlaced video modes are supported on this GPU
(--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on GeForce FX 5200 at PCI:1:0:0:
(--) NVIDIA(0): STN SAMTRON (CRT-0)
(--) NVIDIA(0): STN SAMTRON (CRT-0): 350.0 MHz maximum pixel clock
(II) NVIDIA(0): Assigned Display Device: CRT-0


Two questions regarding this:

1. Does this matter at all in any way?
2. How can I change it?

Thank you
Christian

The driver treats all analog connections as CRTs. You need to use a DVI-D cable if you want the driver to detect a DFP.

Note, this is documented in the driver README.

Thanks,

Thank you Lonni and sorry.

I understand the README that I should just leave it as it is now (detected as CRT).
