Default Need Assistance With Refresh Rate

Hello everyone I am using Kubuntu Edgy with a Geforce FX 5500. I was using the stock kernel and nvidia driver (the one that ships with Edgy's repositories) and it was working fine.

Yesterday I decided to compile a vanilla 2.6.19 kernel. I did so and installed it, and installed the official nvidia linux driver that is the newest as of right now. I made sure though prior to installing the new kernel and driver to purge the stock Ubuntu kernel.

For the most part everything is working except for a minor annoyance. Every time I log in the refresh rate is dropped down to 60hz. I can change it to 85hz but next time I log in, it will be 60hz again. Is there any way to get the 85hz refresh rate to stick?

Other than that the driver works wonderfully, I get 2600+ FPS in glxgears and all my 3D and 2D games run as they should without any crashing whatsoever.

Any ideas?

Please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 5

and then generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log

Thanks,
Lonni

You did not start X with the command that I provided, prior to generating this bug report.

I did but X crashed and wouldn't load with that command and I had to restart in order to have my X server back. Is there an alternate way?

Try requesting a "1280x1024_85_0" mode instead of "1280x1024" in the Screen section of xorg.conf.

Thanks,

I just tried that, and it does not change anything. The Nvidia driver wants to go back to 60hz.
