Default Whoa!

Whoa!

Please share with rest of us how you did that! You use NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run ? If so, how did you fix the display problem?

thanks!

I got it working, but only with my CRT screen. I'll post my XF86Config when I'm back at work.

Lightbulb XF86Config for CRT and Go5650

Here's my XF86Config for my Dell Inspiron 8600 w/Go5650 and a connected 19" Dell D992 CRT screen. I haven't got the built in 1920x1200 LCD working yet. If anybody has this working please post solution.

Regards,
Ole Jacob

I have the correct modelines for the LCD at 1920x1200. I'm currently running SuSE 8.2 using the nv driver (not nvidia accelerated) on my 8600 at 1920x1200. I'll try to post my config tonight and maybe we can put the two together and figure out how to get acceleration working on the LCD.
