I have an NVidia GeForceFX 5200 / 256MB AGP card.
It's identified as NVidia 0x0322 (nv) by Yast->Graphics Card and Monitor
I'm using SuSE 9.2.
The open source driver, nv, works great.
I downloaded and installed the nvidia driver with YOU. It works but
there is one problem. It will not use the 1280x1024 native resolution
of my 17" flat panel. When I tried to reconfigure the card, it allowed
me to select the 1280x1024 resolution (and all lower resolutions were
chosen as well). However, when I restart the X server I can only get
1280x960. This of course doesn't look so hot and a flat panel that
natively does 1280x1024.
The nv driver correctly uses the 1280x1024 res. Instead of configuring
with sax2, I also tried to use the original xorg.conf file for the nv
driver and replace "nv" by "nvidia". That still
didn't correct the resolution problem.
I wanted to know if anybody else had a similar situation with nvidia and
if there's a simple quick fix.
