Default Nvidia 1.0-9631 For Linux Won't Let Me Change Resolution

I'm running openSuse 10.2 and I just installed the nvidia version 1.0-9631 and it will not let me change my resolution it keeps the monitor on 800x600 no matter what settings I choose, different sync rates, or different monitors.

I have attached the nvidia-bug-report.log

Any help to get the resolution changed would be appreciated.

THANKS

Looks like the EDID getting returned from your CRT has bogus information:
(--) NVIDIA(0): --- EDID for @@@ (CRT-0) ---
(--) NVIDIA(0): Maximum Image Size : 65535mm x 65535mm
(--) NVIDIA(0): Valid HSync Range : 4294967 kHz - 0 kHz
(--) NVIDIA(0): Valid VRefresh Range : -1 Hz - 0 Hz
(--) NVIDIA(0): EDID maximum pixel clock : 0.0 MHz
(--) NVIDIA(0):
(--) NVIDIA(0): --- End of EDID for @@@ (CRT-0) ---

You can work around this by setting UseEDID to false in xorg.conf, and specifying a modeline.

Was this problem not present in previous nvidia driver releases?

Thanks,
Lonni

How do I set UseEDID to false in xorg.conf, and specify a modeline?

Was this problem not present in previous nvidia driver releases I don't know, it's the first time I've ever had any problems.

THANKS

Add the following to the Device section of xorg.conf (see the driver README for more details):
Option "UseEDID" "False"

You can generate a modeline with gtf. This is also covered in the driver README (as well as many other places online, its not specific to the nvidia driver).

Thanks,
Lonni

#
Section "Device"
#
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV25 [GeForce4 Ti 4200]"
#
Driver "nvidia"
#
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
#
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "FALSE"
#
Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"

Ok like that for UseEDID correct?

Then are we saying to make a modeline like in xvidtune?

Putting in Option "UseEDID" "FALSE" worked

I don't think I need to make the modeline since xorg.conf has these from opensuse putting them in, those I pasted above.

THANKS
