Default Fullscreen not fullscreen anymore with 8756

Hi

I just updated to the new driver, and I noted, that fullscreen games, that don't run the lcd's native resolution run as fullscreen, but don't resize to fit the entire window - i.e. there is a black border around it - depending on the resolution of the game a quite large one.

How can I fix this or is this a new bug (older drivers didn't have this issue)
My xorg.conf (unmodified from older versions) is here:

dev.gentoo.org/~config/xorg.conf

Thanks

Hello,

I have the same problem like Config, but I don't have this option in nvidia-settings

I notice that in nvidia-settings I have "Display Device -> CRT-O", although my monitor is a LCD monitor

Maybe I must set something in xorg.conf file?

Major sections from my xorg.conf:
------------------------------

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "speedo"
Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "My Monitor"

DisplaySize 339 271
HorizSync 30 - 81
VertRefresh 56 - 75
EndSection


Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "nvidia"
EndSection


Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
Monitor "My Monitor"
DefaultDepth 24

SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"
EndSubSection
EndSection

---------------------------

Thanks for help.

(sorry for my english)

Thanks for your suggestion!

Odd - it seems to have no effect. I read the readme a little, and found this:

Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = scaled"

However, when starting xorg with these options, I get in the log:

(WW) NVIDIA(0): Option "FlatPanelProperties" is not used

Without further info

Ideas

"FlatPanelProperties" only works if you're using a flat panel.

The lack of true fullscreen is a known bug (I've reproduced it in Quake4). For those of you who are experiencing this problem, could you please generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log and list the game(s) where you're experiencing the problem?

Thanks,
Lonni

I'm experiencing the exact opposite, the 8178 drivers let me set the scaling mode with FlatPanelProperties and the nvidia-settings tool

Now, the options are still there, however, they don't work!! If I set it to centered, or scaled aspect ratio, it just stretches out all the way!
Also, now my LCD is stuck in 50hz mode, instead of 60hz which I forcibly request in my xorg.conf file, the LCD does up to 75. UseEdidFreqs is set to false.

d13f00l,
Why are you using the ConnectedMonitor option?
How or where are you seeing your DFP with a 50Hz refresh rate? Please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 5

and then generate a new bug report for review.

Thanks,
Lonni

I am using ConnectedMonitor because prior to this release, without it, my system would do strange things. The DFP would go black, or CRT, or sometims the system would just freeze switching from X to Console and back. I wouldn't even be able to SSH in. I could turn it off, now, if you want.

Also, according to my X log, I'm in 60hz, and according to my LCD monitor's info panel, I'm in 60hz. KDE's monitor config says it's in 50hz. I'm thinking KDE is lying now, as I just updated to 3.5.2. :P

Still, what's with the scaling?

Does the scaling problem persist without:
* ConnectedMonitor in your X configuration
* Ignoring the EDIDFreqs
* Coolbits

Thanks,
Lonni

The problem persists. I commented everything out but metamodes, and I also unplugged my CRT to leave the DFP on the card alone. Without metamodes, i can only run 1280x1024, so I'm unable to test.

Edit: At least my PC doesn't freeze any more switching from X to console :P
The overclocking problem is also fixed, I can o/c my 6200's GPU w/o locking up instantly
The memory leak seems to be gone as well
This scaling problem is a killjoy though...

Also, switching scaling modes in nvidia-settings used to cause my LCD to flicker black for a second, it doesn't do anything now when I switch it.
Edit: Unless I'm in a non native res, then it flickers, but does nothing
