I have four computers hooked up via a KVM. On all of them except the computer in question the video is displayed properly. They all are Nvidia cards. I ran SaX2 but it doesn’t have any way of tweaking the video over that I can see. I haven’t installed the nvidia package yet but it doesn’t have it either. Hitting the auto adjustment on the monitor every time I select this machine on the KVM isn’t the answer. How do I get to the old video adjustment screen?
By default there is no xorg.conf in 11.2
Somewhat confusing for some. Though if you have, and some find it necessary to do so, run sax2, you may have a xorg.conf.
11.2 is suppoed to auto configure and it does. Well it does for me and many others. It you have an nvidia card you might want to install that driver.
sax is available from the kicker menu but it’s not in yast any more.
From reading the article at the link it look as as if there is not adjustment allowed any more. No “arrows” to adjust in the setup screen like there used to be. This Nvidia 6200 card isn’t that bad the registration is just off and its a brand new card.
Bummer, looks like the new way of doing things means you can’t tweak the video settings if necessary as it is in this case. I am starting to think that regular home users are getting left by the wayside to make it more convenient for Corporations with tons of identical Dells and everything locked down with one desktop look and feel.
This needs to be adjusted on the video card end not the monitor end. 3 other computers video cards display the video image in the identical fashion. This one does not.
I have been a Linux enduser for 10 years. I don’t like the road all Linux distros have decided to go down. Looks like there is no freedom going to be left in free and open source software after a while.
You don’t think so, but the NVIDIA driver could very well do the job. It does at least at dozens of off-screen screens I’ve seen.
It will give you ‘nvidia-xconfig’ as well, so you might find the needed settings.
Its very better with the Nvidia drvier from “community”. I need to go the smallest fraction to the right now but its very much better. Looks good after “automatic adjustment” to that system across all three of the systems I have booted. As good as I can expect from a 6200 I think not any good chips in AGP in the places I shop online. Should I save the x configuration in the Nvidia Configuration tool or not?
Now I may or may not have heck to play if I get a kernel update. But I know that and have been there and think I can do that again.
You do realize the KVM switch may be contributory to your issues? Most KVMs don’t completely transmit the DDC data, and then they try to emulate some part of that data back to the box when the monitor is switched elsewhere, to keep the DDC talk with your cpu alive.
