Default Re: GeForce Go linux drivers

nageroc,
According to your bug report, the problem is that you're requesting invalid modes in xorg.conf. The only valid mode in the EDID for the display is 1280x800@60, yet you've requested 1280x800@80 and 1024x768.

Does this problem persist if you request a "1280x800" mode?

In the future, please do not send/post the same issues to both linux-bugs@nvidia.com and nvnews. One method is sufficient, as the same people from NVIDIA monitor both.

Thanks,
Lonni

The "nv" driver (which I am using until we can solve the problem with the "nvidia" driver) does not recognize the "1280x800" mode so I added a mode line for it. I found mode lines for 1280x800@60, 1280x800@70 and 1280x800@80 and they all worked fine so I left the last in place.

I removed the ModeLine and tried "1280x800", "1280x800@60" and "1280x800_60" but the problem persists. X starts but the display is black. I know that X has started because if I move the mouse to the left a bit where I expect there to be an xterm and type "exit", I return back to the VT where I ran startx.

I've uploaded another bug report.

Sorry. Let's continue here since others are experiencing the same problem and will benefit from our exchange.


Thanks,

Chris

nageroc,
Please try adding the ExactModeTimingsDVI X option and see if that helps. Also, have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS?

chipfay73,
It looks like you're using the same exact system has nageroc. Are these Medion notebooks?

I added it to the "Screen" section. Still no go.

My notebook is a Gateway MX3410. I gather from Gateway's site that it was manufactured in June 2006. There are no BIOS or any other updates available.

Please try `dmidecode | head -n 100`, instead.
