Hooray! I am now enjoying hardware-accelerated video goodness! Alas,
I am now vexed with another issue...
In my xorg.conf file, under the "Screen" section, I have the following:
ViewPort 0 0
Modes "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768"
And here is my "Monitor" section:
ModelName "DPro 2070SB"
HorizSync 30.0 - 140.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 160.0
Unfortunately, when I fired up my X server for the first time with the
working nvidia driver, I noticed my resolution was lower than it had
previously been. I ran the Gnome Screen Resolution applet and it is
showing that I'm running at 1400x1050, which my eyes are telling me is
about right. Mysteriously, that is the max resolution I see in the
Screen Resolution applet.
Worst of all, it's running at a refresh rate of 60 Hz! My eyes!!
So I'm confused. Why is it running at a resolution that I didn't
specify at all in my conf file, and why can I not select the
resolution(s) I want (16x12 or higher)?
Thanks for all the good tips so far, btw. This experience is building
my character. I can feel it!
