RE: [SLE] SuSE 8, Nvidia and limited resolution
I have the exact same problem: I had it in
7.3, and now with a clean install of 8.0.
After getting all the updates via
YOU, I ran Sax2. I could pick 1600x1200,
but when I started the X server to test it,
the highest res was 1280x1024. Sax2 decided
to totally lock up the machine (had to do a
hard reset) at this point so I've quit messing
w/ it for now.
BTW, my card is a GeForce2 MX 400 (AGP)

If I figure something out, I'll be sure to
pass it on!

Subject: [SLE] SuSE 8, Nvidia and limited resolution

I've just installed SuSE8, run through YOU to download/install updates
(including the nvidia drivers) and when I set up X using sax2 I can only
use a maximum resolution of 1280x1024. I always run at 1600x1200 (as I
have a big montior) and have done as long as I've been using SuSE and a
Nvidia graphics card (Geforce 2 GTS). I've made sure the monitor freq
settings are correct for my monitor, but no luck.

Anyone had similar problems? Solution? Ideas?
