Default FX 5200 Go

I just got my new notebook a Toshiba P20 with a 17" wide screen.

Can somebody tell me how to set the resolution to 1440 x 900? I haven't found any entry in the monitors list and I'm too dump (and too scared) to add the line myself in XF86Config.

Thanks,
Stefan

Default Just gotta do it

There's no way to avoid adding the modlines in your xf86config-4 file.

Maybe if nVidia had driver support for this chip, but they don't yet.

You're pretty much stuck using the "nv" or "vesa" driver in XFree86 for now.

"nv" will give you 1440x900, but you need to add a line to your config file for it.

"vesa" just won't support that resolution at all, because it's not a standard vesa mode.

Ok I tried to do so, but failed (no screens found).

I typed "xmode -x 1440 -y 900" and added this line to the XF86Config file. I didn't work, what's the right way to do it?

P.S: The "nvidia" driver runs perfectly on a smaller screen (1024x768) and hardware acceleration is available according to glxgears / glxinfo.

Thanks for any help,
Stefan

I just checked the XF86Config and found that I must have been quite tired yesterday - I just chose "NV25" for the card (Strange enough it worked...)

The strange thing is also that I got ARB_Fragment_Program in the OpenGL extension list.
