Default 1.0.9626 - No 1440x900

On 1.0.8776 it could establish 1440x900 perfectly. Now, I can't. Also, it seems that GLX is working, as it previously did.
I've generated a bug report, on Xorg verbose level 6.

Default Re: 1.0.9626 - No 1440x900

There are two problems here. First, the driver isn't correctly installed as you're not using the glx module that ships with the nvidia driver. You should reinstall the driver to fix this:
(II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 7.1.1, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.3

The problem with the mode is here:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Validating Mode "1440x900":
(II) NVIDIA(0): 1440 x 900 @ 61 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0): Mode Source: EDID
(II) NVIDIA(0): Pixel Clock : 108.00 MHz
(II) NVIDIA(0): HRes, HSyncStart : 1440, 1520
(II) NVIDIA(0): HSyncEnd, HTotal : 1672, 1904
(II) NVIDIA(0): VRes, VSyncStart : 900, 903
(II) NVIDIA(0): VSyncEnd, VTotal : 909, 934
(II) NVIDIA(0): H/V Polarity : +/+
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Mode is rejected: Mode (1440 x 900) is too large for DFP
(WW) NVIDIA(0): EDID (Max: 1280 x 1024).

You can work around this by adding the following option to xorg.conf:
Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidDFPMaxSizeCheck"

Thanks Lonni, I got it going.

It was actually a distro-specific error with GLX. On Gentoo I had forgot to do a "eselect opengl set nvidia" whereas default it's set to xorg-x11.

You hit the mode right on the money. Thanks.
