Default NVIDIA issue for 64 Studio 3.3 alpha amd64 - Xorg's nv driver

Hi

here's the complete history.

After the installation was done, btw. by using the DVD with the error on
track 1, everything regarding to X was ok, excepted that the maximal
resolution available was 800 x 600 and the vertical frequency was less
70 Hz. I guess the vesa driver was used, but I don't know.

Then I build the proprietary nvidia driver, see
http://lists.64studio.com/pipermail/64studio-devel/2010-April/006818.html,it displayed to do a copy of the original xorg.conf, but there is no copy. Anyway, the driver is broken because of the gcc issue.

Now I switched to the nv driver:

The good news. As wanted the vertical frequency is set to 90 Hz.
The bad news. The resolution that doesn't cause any undesirable side effects is a virtual resolution of 3840 x 1200.
When selecting the wanted resolution of 1152 x 864 the display will work in slow motion first and then freeze, btw. it's always automatically reset to the virtual resolution after startup.

ASAP I'll try to build the proprietary driver using the needed version of gcc, but I don't think it will be possible to do that, this is another, but a similar issue to those I had with 3.0-beta3 and that are known for Ubuntu.

Anyway, things for 3.3 alpha are more worse than for 3.0-beta3.

I had all this pain with the integrated ATI Radeon X1250-based graphics and now it's back for the NVIDIA GeForce 7200GS on both 3.0-beta3 and 3.3 alpha.

At least the nv driver should be ok.

Still any hints are welcome. FWIW without having an openSUSE install I wouldn't have been able to set up the monitor, because the web config calculators didn't work.

It's completely different for openSUSE and it's written that for other distros, but Ubuntu, there also shouldn't be this much trouble.

Any ideas what to do?

I hope this can be fixed.

Cheers!

Ralf
