Default Upgraded to 9631, now stuck in 800x600 60Hz

Running FreeBSD 6-STABLE ("6.2-PRERELEASE" Nov 2nd) and Xorg 6.9.0

So in running portupgrade -R on some other ports, my nvidia-driver got upgraded to 9631 (the latest in ports). I hadn't rebooted in a long time (good old FreeBSD) but had to today, and on booting back up into X I find myself stuck in 800x600 50Hz unable to change anything (although 24-bit color, interestingly enough). I had been running 1280x1024 and so 800x600 is now quite painful, let alone 50Hz. My card is a GeForce2 MX 400 (AGP).

My xorg.conf has not changed. Here it is for the curious:

Code:

Please start X with -logverbose 6 and attach the X log file.

The NVIDIA X driver is trying to use an invalid EDID, please add Option "UseEDID" "FALSE" to e.g. the Screen section in your X configuration file. FWIW, future NVIDIA X driver versions should do a better job of detecting invalid EDIDs.

That did it, thanks!

I look forward to the newer versions (as always).
