GeForce FX 5200 maximum resolution
I have just installed a 256 MB GeForce FX 5200 board on my Linux box, which is running Slackware 10.2 with a 2.6.13 kernel and X.Org 6.8.2.
When I launch X windows using the nv driver (shipped with X.Org software) the resolution of my X display is 1920x1440, at 24 bpp.
However, when I use the Nvidia driver nvidia (in its latest incarnation, 1.0-8756 for x86 Linux) this driver refuses to go beyond 1280x1024 at such depth.
My attempts to coax it into using this resolution/depth, by inserting the appropriate Modes line in my xorg.conf file, are just rejected as invalid modes by the nvidia driver when launching X windows.
The monitor that I am using is an HP p920 which, like I said, supports a 1920x1440 resolution at 24 bpp. Why is it the case that the X.Org driver nv supports this resolution/depth combination, whereas Nvidia's so far does not? Is there a way around this?

Please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 5
and then generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log.
