Description Mike Swanson 2005-08-13 21:34:19 UTC
When I have the 7667 version of the Nvidia-glx and Nvidia-kernel drivers
installed, X can't start at the native 1920x1200 resolution on my Dell 2405fpw
monitor. Instead, it loads aat 1600x1200 resolution.  I'm using xorg 6.8.2-r2. 
The relevant lines in my xorg.conf file look like:
 Modeline "DELL1920"  193.16  1920 2048 2256 2592  1200 1201 1204 1242  -HSync

The relevant info in my xorg log file is:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Dell 2405: Using default hsync range of 30.00-81.00 kHz
(II) NVIDIA(0): Dell 2405: Using default vrefresh range of 56.00-76.00 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0): Clock range:  12.00 to 165.00 MHz
(II) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "DELL1920" (bad mode clock/interlace/doublescan)

When I downgrade to the 7174 driver version, it loads at 1920x1600 fine.  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  emerge and install nvidia-glx 7667
2.  Start X

Actual Results:  
Loads in 1600x1200 mode

Expected Results:  
Should load in 1920x1200 mode.  Previous version of Nvidia drivers load fine at
this resolution

In addition, this is on  eVGA 6800 GT, normal clock, on Gentoo kernel 2.6.12-r6

Unless we're doing something weird I'm not so sure this is a Gentoo bug.  Might
be an nVidia problem...did you Google it?

Got a response from Nvidia, it's a known problem with their drivers.  Thought it
might be good to report it in case someone has a similar problem.
