Default DVI Help - still pleading 4 drivers revs later

My DVI problems appear to be improving a bit, but still not working. At least my machine does not crash anymore.

Hardware:

Dual PIII-933
Xtasy 6964
Philips 180P

Attached is my log file.

If I boot with just the DVI connector hooked up, the screen goes black, but it no longers locks the system. If I exit X (Ctrl-Alt-BKspace), I have full console control back. I can then plug in the VGA connector and X will use it when I restart (that is an improvement. It used to need a reboot with the VGA connector unhooked and then hooked up).

The lines I find interesting are:

II) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s):
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No connected display devices detected; assuming 1 CRT
(--) NVIDIA(0): Detected TV Encoder: Brooktree 868
(II) NVIDIA(0): Enabled display device(s): CRT-0
(II) NVIDIA(0): Mapping display device 0 (CRT-0) to CRTC 0


It thinks I have a CRT hooked up, and setting the Connected string to DFP will hard lock my system (that has not changed).

As an extra option I have tried adding the ignore option for CRT and that gets X to recognize the flat panel in the log file, but it can display anything.

Andy, can you throw me a line here?

Thanks.

The fact that ignoring CRT causes X to detect your flatpanel is interesting. Can you attach a verbose X log showing that?

I'm tracking down hardware to match yours again, but I still need your vbios revision in order to make sure we're comparing apples to apples.

Thanks!

Andy,

Attached is the log file that has the IgnoreDisplayDevices "CRT" Option enabled.

It times out with a no screens found, but in the log file you can clearly see it notices the DFP.

Making "ConnectedMonitor" DFP will not work either.

Thanks.

What vbios do you have? Have you attempted to update it from your vendor's webpage?

Code:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s): 
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No connected display devices detected; assuming 1 CRT
(--) NVIDIA(0): Detected TV Encoder: Brooktree 868
(II) NVIDIA(0): Enabled display device(s): CRT-0
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to read mapping of display devices to CRTCs
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
Your panel isn't actually being detected - the CRTC failure happens because it thinks your DFP is a CRT. I'd be very curious to find out what happens with a vbios update.

Thanks Andy,

There is no BIOS info in /proc. It is a Visiontek and it does not report BIOS on bootup, and there have never been any BIOS updates before they switched over to ATI

Any recommendations?

I will get you any info you need. Thanks.

(sorry, I haven't forgotten about this)

I don't have any recommendations as of yet. I'm still not able to reproduce, but I have a few more pairs of eyes on this now.

Keeping in mind that my machine is SMP also. That might have gotten lost in the shuffle of that first post of the thread.

Thanks again.

Default DVI Help - still pleading *5* driver revs later

Andy,

Still no go on DVI.

Setting "ConnectedMonitor" will hard lock my system.

Attached is my XFree log file.

It sees the DFP as the bootup device but insists on forcing a CRT.

Thanks.

I tried the IgnoreDisplayDevices to no avail either.

Perhaps there is something I can force with the Philips 180P.

Others seem to have their DVI working.
