Default My lenny picks the wrong resolution whereas squeeze is right

Hi,

My lenny picks a smaller resolution than my monitor can handle. Almost
like http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.debian.user/376362, but my case
is different.

The good news is that my squeeze picks the right one, for the same
machine. I've posted the brief comparison of the 2 logs at

http://paste.debian.net/plain/89783

The executive summary is,

lenny says:

(--) NV(0): Chipset: "Unknown NVIDIA chipset"
(II) NV(0): 1280x1024@75Hz
(II) NV(0): Modeline "1280x1024"x59.9 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712
1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync (63.7 kHz)
(II) NV(0): Not using default mode "1280x1024" (width too large for
virtual size)

while squeeze says:

(--) NV: Found NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE at 00@00:0d:0
(II) NV(0): Printing DDC gathered Modelines:
(II) NV(0): Modeline "1280x1024"x0.0 108.00 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024
1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync (64.0 kHz)
(II) NV(0): Modeline "1280x1024"x0.0 135.00 1280 1296 1440 1688 1024
1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync (80.0 kHz)
(II) NV(0): Configured Monitor: Using maximum pixel clock of 140.00 MHz
(II) NV(0): Estimated virtual size for aspect ratio 1.2333 is 1280x1024
(II) NV(0): Clock range: 12.00 to 400.00 MHz
(II) NV(0): Not using default mode "1280x1024" (hsync out of range)
(II) NV(0): Modeline "1280x1024"x60.0 108.00 1280 1328 1440 1688
1024 1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync (64.0 kHz)

Any way for me to have my lenny to use the right resolution? It's
damaging my monitor.

PS. both of the full log can be posted if you want.

Thanks

It seems lenny cannot recognize the vga model ("Unknown NVIDIA
chipset") :-?

Well, you can try with "cvt" tool to get the correct "Modeline" and then
add it to your "xorg.conf". Restart and check if it got the right
resolution.

I.e., for a 1280x1024@60Hz display, you can type:

***
cvt 1280 1024 60
***


Or you can do the same "on the fly" with "xrandr".

Greetings,

Have you tried a back-ported kernel? It might be worth a try.
