Linux newbie needs help with Nvidia card - PLEASE help

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am a Linux newbie so go easy on me....I am running a dual-boot Win 2000 pro and SuSE 8.1 pro systesm. Every thing seems to be working fine with the exception of the video display.

 

I downloaded and installed what I believe to be the correct video drivers for my Nvidia GeForce video card. I have an picture, but the image quality is poor. It appears 'blurry' for lack of a better term. Not as 'sharp' as when running Win2k. Any thoughts? I have used YaST to set the settings as best as I can understand (3d ACCELERATION ENABLED, 24 BIT, ETC). Does anyone have any ideas? I love Linux so far, but this 'blurry/slightly fuzzy' image is giving me a headache - literllay.

 

Can anyone be of assisitance?

I don't know - my video is sharp with the nVidia driver. Was sharp with the vesa driver, too.

 

What version of the driver are you running?

 

Can you post the Module, Device, and Screen sections from your XF86Config file?

(post your equiv of mine):

 

Section "Module"

Load "dbe"

Load "extmod"

Load "fbdevhw"

Load "glx"

Load "record"

Load "freetype"

Load "type1"

# added by user

#Load "v41"

EndSection

 

Section "Screen"

Identifier "Screen0"

Device "Videocard0"

Monitor "Monitor0"

DefaultDepth 24

SubSection "Display"
