Default Issues with 9600 GT and Fedora 10

I recently upgraded my nvidia drivers in fedora 10 using RPMfusion and the su yum install kmod-nvidia command in the terminal. Before I did this the resolution on my monitor was at 1024x786, but now it refuses to go above 800x600. I'm just wondering what could be causing this and if there is a way to fix it.

I am running the same things you are, and haven't had a problem. Make sure that /etc/X11/xorg.conf isn't explicitly setting the resolution on something. Mine looks like this (yours should vary if you are running 32 bit):


# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
#Option "AIGLX" "on"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection


Try removing things that force resolution if they exist. X.org should be able to automagically detect the correct resolution.

Moony,

You don't need the "ServerFlags", "AddARGBGLXVisuals" option, or "Composite" option in your xorg.conf. That's all enabled by default these days.

Code:
Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
EndSection
That's all you need.
