Default Re: 8174 + xorg: can't get native resolution on laptop LCD

The easiest way to see if the bug is fixed is to try the new driver. You can also email linux-bugs@nvidia.com to inquire.

Thanks,

I'm glad to have finally found out why my Tecra M4 is acting the way it is. I've baffled quite a few Gentoo gearheads over the issue (running 8178), and now I know I just need to run VESA for now and wait for a working NVIDIA release to hit.

I expect this thread will get an official bump when the issue is fixed? Hope so.

This bug should be resolved in the next driver release.

Thanks,

Even more weirdness with 8178 here. I hope this is being looked at.

Question Re: 8174 + xorg: can't get native resolution on laptop LCD

Can anyone report if 8756 fixes this bug? I just now saw the post about the workaround, but I haven't had the chance to give it a shot, and if the driver fixes it, I would rather just go that route I think.

Yes, 8756 works fine with my Tecra M3, the problem is gone. Thanks to Nvidia for this.
