Unhappy nvidia settings not surviving reboot??

Hi all

I installed nvidia driver version 195.42 on Fedora 12. When i restarted my system it is on 1024 x 768 resolution. i run nvidia-settings as root and changed the resolution to 1440 x 900 as i am using Acer 19 inch wide lcd, save the x configuration file and restarted the system. but again the resolution was set at 1024 x 768. I am using Nvidia Geforce 7300GT Card.

Can any one help me.


Regards
Sajid Zaman

Default Re: nvidia settings not surviving reboot??

Generally you can just let the driver automatically select it for you. Try replace your metamodes line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf with:

Code:
Option         "metamodes" "CRT-0: nvidia-auto-select +0+0"

Default Re: nvidia settings not surviving reboot??

i dont know why, but when i setup resolution from sytem-config-display to 1440 x 900 it worked perfectly fine.

Now what could be the reason?

Thanks

It sounds like your DE is overriding the default mode when it starts.
