Default problem with nvidia driver 169.07


After I updated the kernel to the latest version

$ rpm -qa | grep kernel

it has pulled the latest nvidia drivers from livna for my GeForce 6600 card.

$ rpm -qa | grep nvidia

As I rebooted, my LCD panel went blank with the power light turning
yellow, indicating that there is no video signal. Fortunately, I have
dual-heal configuration, and I quickly discovered that the picture on my
TV is OK. After running nvidia-settings, I was quite surprised to find
out that all my videocard sees is just TV, but no LCD. If I switch to
console mode, the flat panel comes alive and the picture appears on both
TV and LCD. I changed the driver to nv, instead of nvidia and the
picture appears on both screens without glitches. I hooked my LCD to
DSUB output of my card instead of DVI, and nvidia-settings immediately
found new CRT monitor, perfectly detecting the model and resolution.

Thus, latest nvidia driver does not detect the DVI output on my video
adapter. Did anyone notice anything like this before? Is there something
I've missed?

I'm running FC8 i386 on x86_64 hardware, should this matter.
