Talking SOLUTION: xorg.conf for Dell Latitude D800 WUXGA

Hi,

I have a Dell Latitude D800 laptop with a WUXGA 1920 x 1200 LCD display. I had trouble getting Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL 4) to work properly, until I got a modified xorg.conf file from RedHat Support. The full file is at http://pastebin.com/890183 , the relevant sections (different from default) are:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "LCD Panel 1920x1200"
HorizSync 31.5 - 110.0
VertRefresh 28 - 90
Modeline "1920x1200" 162 1920 1984 2176 2480 1200 1201 1204 1250 +hsync +vsync
Option "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "1920x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1920x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
Group 0
Mode 0666
EndSection
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now my nice wide monitor works great!

You are using "nv" driver. which is not the official driver for nvidia. In other word, there's no point in posting your result here .
