Default Native resolution problem

I bought a Samsung 204B monitor yesterday that has a native resolution of 1600x1200. When I log in, the resolution starts out at 1280x1024. I can switch to the higher resolution using the nvidia GUI, but after I log out, resolution switches back to 1280x1024. The login screen is at 1280x1024.

Attached is the bug report.

The Screen section from xorg.conf is:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200"
EndSubSection
EndSection

This is with fedora core 6, and an evga 6600 gpu.

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks,

Brad

According to your bug report, X is running 1600x1200:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1600 x 1200

How are you determining that its doing 1280x1024 ?

My apologies. I ran the nnvidia-bug-report script after manually changing the resolution back to 1600x1200. The 1280x1024 display is obvious when i log in and confirmed by the nvidia gui.

I have attached two log files.

nvidia-bug-report_before.log is a log file generated before i log into X, generated from a shell.

nvidia-bug-report_after.log is a log file i run after i log into X from an x-term.

thank you for the response.

Brad

In your bug report, I see:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1600x1200"
(II) Mouse0: ps2EnableDataReporting: succeeded
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1280x1024"

Something is changing the mode, perhaps Gnome? Per the driver README:
#########
Q. Using GNOME configuration utilities, I am unable to get a resolution above
800x600. What is wrong?

A. The installation of GNOME provided in distributions such as Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4 contain several competing interfaces for specifying
resolution:


'System Settings' -> 'Display'


which will update the X configuration file, and


'Applications' -> 'Preferences' -> 'Screen Resolution'


which will update the per-user screen resolution using the XRandR
extension. Your desktop resolution will be limited to the smaller of the
two settings. Please be sure to check the setting of each.

Netlama -

Thank you for your help. resolution seems to be "sticking" now.

A minor bug report. The nvidia configuration gui has a panel title GPU Scaling Method with 3 radio buttons. The top button label is misspelled. "Streched" is the current value. It should be "Stretched".

Thanks again!

Brad
