Default Thin Blue Line - 6100 with FC9 & 1280x1024

I have a problem, not the only one either, that when using the nvidia driver (latest) on fedora core 9 (in my case x86_64) with 6100 and a acer AL1714 (and hp 17 inch) which has a native resolution of 1280x1024, the screen starts up with a single line of pixels visible at the top (x appears to actually be working) and the rest of the screen black.

I can use CTRL-ALT-+/- to change to another resolution eg 1280x960 but thats just not optimum..

I have attached a archive with some verbose x-logs and the configs used to create this..

I had the driver working perfectlly in fedora 8, but 9 just wont work as it should..

You can also see the discussiuon we have been having on the fedora forums at

I had a similar problem with the same card: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=115209

I couldn't find a decent solution except going back to an old version of the driver (169.12). I could also say on this settings and driver, the KDE4 performance are really really poor (while compiz on gnome is working ok)

thank you for the information, so I won't update to the latest driver if it's useless for our problem...

I hope they will find a solution, because the driver was working well before that.

Hi,

just wanted to tell you that I have exactly the same problem. Having an AMD64 with Geforce 6100 I just get one line of pixels when logging in. Other Videomodes,except 1280x1024, working, nv-driver working. As a Workaround I also user the 169.12 drivers. But now I'm on Kernl 2.6.26 and the kernel module from that old driver doesn't compile any longer.

I'd be extremly grateful for a solution for this problem.

Kind Regards
Michael

Still the same Problems here with latest Beta (177.67). Going crazy!

Has someone already found a workaround for this issue?

Hi Mathew,

like I wrote already in Thread http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=115209, the newest drivers didn't fix it for me either.

Can you describe what kind of Hardware you have, so that we may find a pattern.
I use the following:
AMD 64x2 with native 64Bit drivers, An embedded GeForce 6100 and a resolution of 1280x1024. Do you have a similar setup??

Kind Regards
Michael

Hi Mathew,

you are using the 64Bit drivers then, or having a 32Bit System installed?

Kind Regards
Michael
