Default How to configure a graphic card for Dell 30" LCD

I just bought a Dell 30" LCD monitor, but I found that I am not able to configure the resolution to 2560x1600 on my graphich card.
On 32-bit WindowXP and the latest NVIDIA driver, 2560x1600 resolution can be configured without problem. However, on SuSE10.2 x86_64, it always displays
as 1024x800. With sax2 command, I can set the resolution to 2560x1600, however, during the test and later in normal use, the resolution is 1024x800.
I tried 7950CT, 7950GX2 and 7800CTX, 7950CT/7950GX2 are recognized as a VESA frambuffer graphics, and no color and resoultion changes are allowed.
1.0-9631 driver was used. I wonder if this is a bug on SuSE 10.2/sax2?

I have been having the same problem for two months.

The new 8800 cards don't work with the various 30" displays.

Supposedly Nvidia is fixing it, but actions speak louder than words.

@Jyh-Shyong: please start X with the -logverbose 6 command line option and generate/attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678).

@tmack: are you seeing this problem with 1.0-9746?

Question Re: How to configure a graphic card for Dell 30" LCD

Is anyone successfully using a 2560x1600 display? That seems like a peculiar problem to have since nvidia explicitly cites support for it. I'm still debating splurging or not; the fact that the nvidia driver for linux has added support for 8800gts is leaning me towards it. My choice is down to 8800gts or passively cooled xfx 7950gt for the best performance/noise ratio.

Kind of lame that the dell 30 only has a single dvi input and no osd, though. And that the new version with better response time and contrast isn't being sold to us plebes, either.

Please remember that the 8800 does not currently work with Linux and such a display!

@pe1chl: 1.0-9742 did not work due a problem that caused it to always use single-link, but the Dell 30" DFP should work with 1.0-9746.

I wouldn't sell any spare monitor/video card though while others are still having trouble, in case it doesn't work out.

Hi,

Yes, I still get a blank screen with the new driver and my Dell 30".

I know the driver being loaded is the new one, because the X splash screen no longer says Beta (but it has the new Nvidia logo).

It works fine with my GX2 card.

@tmack: can you still log into the system remotely at that point? If so, please generate/attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file with 1.0-9746.
