Re: Fwd: [SLE] ViewSonic config problem. (Was Nvidia 3D driver problems and SAX2)

Hi, here are some possible things to try:

Your VertRefresh rate is 50-180, Try to lower it to something like 50-120.
This some times does the trick, If it has a positive effect then you can
incrementally increase it ( e.g to 140, 150, etc...).

Also, in the Section "Modes" the has the resolution timings, for instance
(Modeline "1024x768" 71.39 1024 1072 1248 1384 768 768 778 802)
These show various different timings for each resolution (like 3 sets for
1024x768, 7 for 800x600, etc) but your "Screen" section has only one
resolution for all but one of the bit depths (Depth 15, 16, 24, 32....) Try
changing them (with the cut and paste function) to something like

Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480" (you'll be able to
switch res with the crtl+alt+ (plus/minus key).

Do this to all the lines.

Next in the section "Device" yours is
Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce 2 MX"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Screen 0
VendorName "Nvidia"
EndSection
Try these various options in the order given (one at a time)

"SWCursor" "boolean"
For example
it should like this

BoardName "GeForce 2 MX"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Screen 0
VendorName "Nvidia"
Option "SWCursor" "1"

This tells the system to use a software rendered X cursor, In some case
(when I had my GF2-MX) it didn't work right without the swcursor. Later I
worked without the SWCursor option, but I don't no why (suspect it had to do
with the initialization of the drivers and X sys - once done it didn't care
anymore - just a guess)

Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
This will cause the drivers to to "Disable probing of EDID (Extended Display
Identification Data) from your monitor."
In otherwords, the information the monitor is telling the drivers will be
ignored and industry defaults (these are safe) will be used instead.

Option "NoDDC" "1"
Same as IgnoreEDID command option

Option "UseEdidFreqs" "1"
Tells the drivers to read/use the EDID info the monitor is sending it. In
otherwords, the ViewSonic monitor talks to the drivers and say "here are the
resolution and timings I have.


See, if any of these help. I wouldn't be surprised if the SWCursor or the
IgnoreEDID option help (but no gaurantee - since I haven't looked at the
Xsession's error log). You should look at the readme in your
/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0 directory to get a better idea of
troubleshooting and options you might like/need.

HTH, let me know. Curtis

This morning, my problem was back. No NVidia splash screen at startup. For
some reason, YAST2 and SAX2 can't remember my monitor settings:

ViewSonic E-70-3 in YAST2 (E771 also works just about as poorly in SAX2)
Fh:30-70kHz ═(Horizontal)
Fv:50-160Hz ═(Vertical)

SAX2 lists the monitor as VESA 1024 X 768@75Hz.

What the #?%&*? is going on here?

Cheers,

it's my conf with nvidia
