Default 1080p not supported?

I'm using Kubuntu 6.10, and I've tried the latest nvidia driver, one from December '06, and one from October '06, and none of them support 1080p.

I have a EVGA 7800GTX, and a Westinghouse LVM-42w2 monitor. I use 1920x1080 in windows all the time - so I know it works. Also, when I switch my driver setting to the default "nv" driver instead of "nvidia", 1080p works (thanks to the 1080p modeline I inserted into xorg.conf) - but with that same xorg.conf file it maxes out at 1280x1024 with the nvidia drivers.

/var/log xorg file says something about 1920x1080_60.00 not being a valid mode.

I've been at this for the last 3 hours, and I'm very close to going back to windoze. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My bug report log does not fit in the character limit, and I could not find any other posts about linux-7800gtx-1080p problems.

As many others have done, you can compress the bug report to attach it.

So, do nvidia drivers in fact support 1080p in Linux, or are they limited to standard computer resolutions?

The modeline you inserted is wrong and have a too high frequency. Did you try with the normal "1920x1080" ?

As Lithorus stated, your custom modeline isn't valid. You should let the driver use the mode in the EDID of your display. Also, 1.0-8776 is no longer supported. If you need further assistance, please retest with 1.0-9755.

Thanks,
Lonni
