    Default screen resolution

    Hi I have an error on my desktop a gnome openSUSE 11.3
    I have a screen resolution of 1024x768 and want one at 1360x768
    the error occurred after I accidentally installed a nivida driver who did not fit my PC
    I've debugged the nivida driver but not the screen resolution
    from the Configure screen option "unknown monitor"

    from console: ~ / Desktop> xrandr-q
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
    default connected 1024x768 +0 +0 0mm x 0mm
    1024x768 75.0 70.0 60.0 *
    832x624 75.0

    (1) Please send this command and post the results:
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk  | grep VGA -A2
    and

    (2) Please also with a text editor open the log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log , copy its contents, and paste the contents into the pastebin site SUSE Paste and press 'create' and then post here the website / url it provides, so we can better understand the problem that you face.

    Currently your PC is using the 'nv' graphic driver. What graphic driver were you using before when you had the high resolution functional? Have you removed any blacklisting and/or KMS disabling as part of your recovery from the failed nvidia driver install attempt?

    what I can see through YaST is that I have 1 nvidia-texture-tools installed
    and they there are not installed, there are 2 recommended "nvidia-gfxG02-KMP-desktop, xorg-x11-driver-video-nouveau", 3 proposed "nvidia-gfx-KMP-desktop, nvidia gfxG01-KMP-desktop, nvidia gfxG02-KMP-desktop" and 1 administrator "conky-feature-nvidia"

    I don't install the proprietary driver via the repository rpm method, so I can't help wrt using YaST. I always install via the manual method (called the 'hardway (that isn't hard) ' by some).

    If I recall correctly, the nouveau driver in openSUSE-11.3 (xorg-x11-driver-video-nouveau) was not very mature. Your best bet may be to install the PROPER proprietary driver. Be very careful what you choose if you use the repository/rpm method.

    To repeat my previous question, currently your PC is using the 'nv' graphic driver. What graphic driver were you using before when you had the high resolution functional? Have you removed any blacklisting and/or KMS disabling as part of your recovery from the failed nvidia driver install attempt?

    Ahh one comment thou ... that refers to the 100.14.11 driver (from June-2007) ... I believe the 173.14.31 (legacy) is the latest driver for the [GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a] [10de:03d6] reference: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...ppendix-a.html
