Question Nvidia problem: the one and only resolution is 1440x900


My notebook running Fedora 17 has an Nvidia Quadro NVS 320M graphics card. I have installed the Nvidia drivers from the RPM Fusion repository. Everything seems to work fine except the following: I am unable to change the display resolution to 1024x768 with the nvidia-settings program, since the one and only option is 1440x900.

I have tried to modify the /etc/xorg.conf using nvidia-xconfig but any changes seems to be ignored completely after restarting X.

I do not understand what is wrong, I have not experienced the problem in previous Fedora versions.

I switched back to my original xorg.conf that is available here:


Any idea how to add support for 1024x768?
