Good day all,

I'v installed fc6 and using kmod-nvidia from livna and all working great except....

my screen resolution is stuck at 800x600, i use system-config-display and set it to 1280x1024, restart X and its still 800x600 :confused:

the frustrating thing is that it has gone to 1280x1024 a couple of times, but then when you log out and restart X again it reverts back to 800x600.

how can i get it to stay at 1280x1024 permanently???

its ok, basicaly it was ignoring the Modes in my xorg.conf because it couldn't validate them
so i'v used

Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"

and now it actualy uses the modes i want rather than trying to think for its self

I hate it when computers think they know what you want, and ignor specific instructions :mad:

you add it to your xorg.conf like so.....

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"
EndSection
