I installed the nvidia driver like this:
1) I installed the rpmfusion repos
2) I did a yum install kmod-nvidia
3) I ran nvidia-xconfig
Still no luck. - my current xorg.conf file is below
I tried adding a Modes section to the Screen section like this:
Viewport 0 0
but still no luck. If it matters, I installed CentOS and it immediately (even
without installing the nvidia drivers) gave me 1920x1200 - not sure if this is
helpful or not but it confirms that the card actually will run 1920x1200
Anyone have any other Ideas?
Thanks in advance...
