Hi Brian,

Have you tried modifying /etc/X11/xorg.conf? Set the default depth to 24
and then remove all resolutions except for the one you want.eg.

DefaultDepth 24

SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"

I have an FX5200 and the proprietary drivers work well.

Good Luck,
Arthur

- From the command line, try:
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Choose the nv driver (open source 2d only). This should get you back
into graphical mode. If you do not need 3D (and I mean need, as in it
is *required* to get your work done, not because you think compiz is
purdy) I would stick with the 2d drivers. I have had problems in the
past with the proprietary video drivers and real time kernels.

When choosing drivers, I believe there is a legacy nVidia driver, which
is the one you want. You could also download the latest (legacy) driver
directly from nvidia, and install it via the CLI.

I mentioned dpkg-reconfigure as it will reset the xorg.conf to the
defaults. This is in case there some other cruft in the xorg.conf file.

That's all nice and well, but: xorg.conf is pretty empty nowadays. Also
that part is not available anymore in dpkg-reconfigure. So if you have
problems with the default resolution it's even harder now to fix. At
least I don't know of a reasonably easy way to do it. It worked well
with dpkg-reclonfigure but that doesn't work anymore.
The sanest way I know of is copying that part from an old or example
xorg.conf and adjust it. It was easier back then when the stuff was
still in the xorg.conf and just needed adjustment.

I'd try nv drivers and edit the xorg.conf. For me the I think most
relevant part looks like this:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" $
EndSubSection
EndSection

You might need to adjust some other stuff as well, but as I said, try
the old one. IMHO "improved" xorg configuring is more a mess now than it
was before.

I can't thank you all enough for giving me some ideas to try.
Unfortunately after several more hours of beating my head against the
proverbial "wall" I'm still not getting this to work.

I've tried downloading and installing the latest driver from Nvidia.
However, that keeps giving me an error that no precompiled kernel
interface found. So, I say to download it from Nvidia, but nothing
found. Then it says that no kernel source tree found. However, I've
installed the kernel sources, kernel dev etc.

So, I go back to messing with the driver on the system already. I
modify the xorg.conf to look like so:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen" 0 0
InputDevice "Generic Keyboard" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Configured Mouse"
EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Driver "nvidia"
# Option "UseEDID" "False"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Configured Video Device"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
DefaultDepth 24
Option "NoLogo" "True"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768"
EndSubSection
EndSection

Well, still no luck. I look at the /var/log/Xorg.0.log (see below):

The only problem I see is that it is not getting the EDID info from
the monitor (it is an IBM ThinkVision L180p). So, I added the Option
"UseEDID" "False" to the xorg.conf. No change again. Still I see
problems that there are no valid modes. So, I think it is because the
monitor is plugged into a KVM and I directly attach it to the PC. No
change.

I'm baffled and at my wits end. So, I beg for your help as my brain is
mush and I'm not sure what else to do at this time, but I'm still in
this for the long haul and know that come h3ll or high water I'm going
to get this working.

Thanks,
Brian

Default Problems with Video Drivers

Here is my xorg. You should be able to figure out the bits that are
specific to me and edit to suit. This is *mostly* how the old xorgs were.

Check your /usr/src directory. If you are *sure* you have the kernel
source or headers installed that match your running kernel, they may
just need to be unpacked.

So, first figure out what kernel you are running:
uname -r

You should see something like this:
2.6.24-19-rt

So, I look in my /usr/src
ls /usr/src |grep `uname -r`

I have the headers installed for my kernel so I see this:
linux-headers-2.6.24-19-rt

If you see nothing then you do not have source/headers that match your
kernel

To install the headers:
sudo aptitude install linux-headers-rt
I was assuming that you had the real time kernel, otherwise omit the -rt
part.

Thank you for everyone's help. I finally got the drivers figured out
and working on this install with the Nvidia card and IBM monitor. Most
complicated install I've ever had. I ended up using the manually
installed drivers from Nvidia's site. Those worked until the first
update of the system. Then I figured out that I needed to disable
those modules so they didn't get updated with the system.Anyways, I'm
back up and working. Just have to figure out the other issues that
have come up.

Thanks again everyone.
Brian
