Default Problem: setting the resolution on Nvidia-driver

Hello,
I have a small problem with my Nvidia Driver on Suse10.3
I installed the driver using the "1-click-yast" method and everything seems to bee ok, except the Graphic resolution (3D Support is now running).
For my Notebook (Dell Inspiron 1720) a resolution of 1920x1200 shoot be available. What I get is something like 800x600.

The xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log are attached.

Are there any ideas what's wrong there?

Thanks for your answers.
Andi

Your logfile says the resolution is 1920x1200.
When it really is not, the problem is not in the driver but it may be in your windowmanager. I think gnome tries to set the resolution to some user-specified value.

I'm using KDE, but I think the problem depends on the Driver, because if I change the line:

Driver "nvidia"

in the device section to:

Driver "nv"

every thing works fine (except the 3D-Support!!!) .

Then you need to post the bugreport with verbose logging.

OK! You are right,
it's a problem of the windowmanager!
The Notebook is running with a resolution of 1920x1200!
But all of the KDE-features are looking like a smaller resolution.
Can someone tell me, how to configure KDE for my 1920x1200?

remember: Using the "nv" driver works fine!!

In your Monitor section, remove the Horizsync and Vertrefresh lines.
Add this line:
Option "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "true"

In your Screen section, change the long Modes lines to:
Modes "1920x1200"

Option "DPMS"
Option "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "true"

EndSection


Section "Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
Modes "1920x1200"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1920x1200"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1920x1200"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1920x1200"
EndSubSection
Device "Device[0]"

Sorry I overlooked your last post. It probably is a problem with the DPI setting.
Experiment with lines like this:
Option "DPI" "100 x 100"

(in the Monitor section)
You can vary the number 100.

That's it , I'm happy!!!
It was a problem with the DPI-Settings!!!
I added the option:

Option "UseEDIDDpi" "FALSE"

to the xorg.conf files, and everything is fine.
Thanks a lot for your help, pe1chl !!!!

you could remove this:
Modes "1920x1200"

makes resolution switching a lot nicer.
