[SOLVED]Issues EDID and 1440x900 resolution.

For some reason my AL1916W(DVI port) cannot be set to a resolution higher than 1024x768, even though it supports 1440x900. My AL1916(VGA port) is recognized properly is supported up to it's maximum resolution. This is a new installation on hardware that worked properly before. MY 10-monitors.conf looks like:

What does it do?

nvidia drivers have a nice gui for setting stuff up, have you tried it?
What's the output of 'xrandr'?

Screen 1 works fine. Screen 0 is the concern.

Yes, I use the nVidia gui, but the highest resolution setting for that monitor is 1024x768.

AFAIK, I cant use xrandr if I'm using Xinerama. If I run xrandr, i get the error: "RandR extension missing".

Re: [SOLVED]Issues EDID and 1440x900 resolution.

Why are you using xinerama? Delete that conf file and just use the nvidia gui. And if you want a permanent config, use twinview and not xinerama.

Re: [SOLVED]Issues EDID and 1440x900 resolution.

When I disable Xinerama and enable TwinView, I cant drag applications between the two screens. My problem is that I can't set the proper resolution on "Monitor0".

You'd be the first with this problem, as far as I've seen in my many years with Linux.

Xinerama is deprecated. So what you should focus on is fixing the issue above. No idea how though, because like I said, I've never seen it before.

I have Twinview enabled in my 10-monitors.conf, but if I open 'nvidia-settings', in "X Server Display Configuration" under "Configuration", the option: "Seperate X Screens" is selected. If I try to change it to TwinView and apply the changes, I get the error: "Failed to set MetaMode (1) 'CRT-1: nvidia-auto-select @1024x768 +0+0, CRT-0: nvidia-auto-select @1280x1024 +1024+0' (Mode 2304x1024, id: 50) on X screen 0."

xrandr outputs:

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm

   400x300        56.0  
   320x240        57.0  

A maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 is surely not the case.

Any ideas?

Re: [SOLVED]Issues EDID and 1440x900 resolution.

I said delete that conf file.

Or, try with this in it. *Just* this:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Nvidia Card"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option      "TwinView"    "on"
EndSection

Hi nadman10, can you resize that image or replace it with a link? It's too large. Our policy, Forum Etiquette: Pasting Pictures and Code. Thanks.

Yep, that's normal. Go into the gui and enable it. Into twinview mode. Or use the tiny file I provided, that one should have it activated from the start.

Sorry. Removed the pic.

Gusar: Done. I can move applications freely between the screens too.

EDIT: And another question, where is all this configuration stored if there is no longer a 10-monitors.conf?

Re: [SOLVED]Issues EDID and 1440x900 resolution.

I physically swapped cables between the two monitors. My main monitor still isn't recognized properly even though it is hooked up through the VGA port on the video card. I'm not sure why it used to work an now it doesn't unless there is some kind of bug in the newer versions of the nvidia driver.

Simple: It isn't. What you set in nvidia-settings is valid only for the current session. It's possible to make it permanent in a 10-monitor.conf, but not by using a file autogenerated by nvidia tools. Those contain a lot of cruft.

What exactly is the issue you're currently having? A display does not have the resolution you want? Connect only that display and post /var/log/Xorg.0.log once X starts on it.

Re: [SOLVED]Issues EDID and 1440x900 resolution.

Ok. That makes alot more sense then.

Yes, nvidia-utils tells me that my monitor's maximum resolution is 1024x768, when in fact, it is 1440x900.

Re: [SOLVED]Issues EDID and 1440x900 resolution.

[    18.134] (WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): The EDID read for display device CRT-1 is invalid:
[    18.134] (WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0):     unrecognized EDID Header.

I expected that - EDID issues. They're a bitch. The nvidia driver has quite a few options to play around with that. But what I'd do first is try the nouveau driver. If nouveau works, we can get useful info from that, like modelines and such.

Re: [SOLVED]Issues EDID and 1440x900 resolution.

I originally started with the nouveau driver, but the EDID issues spammed my console so hard that I literally couldn't do anything. When in X, very 10 seconds it would hang my session for a moment and write errors to the log files. My computer was useless with it.

Hmm... You could try manually specifying HorizSync, VertRefresh, ModeLine and such... But I also have a crazy idea: What's the resolution of your other display? If it's 1440x900, you can extract the edid from it, nvidia-settings has an option to do it. Then you do this:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Nvidia Card"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option      "CustomEDID" "CRT-1:/etc/X11/edid.bin"
    Option      "TwinView" "on"
    Option      "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder" "CRT-1, CRT-0"
    Option      "TwinViewOrientation" "CRT-1 LeftOf CRT-0"
EndSection

Basically, with the CustomEDID option you use the edid from the working display for the non-working one. The rest sets up twinview for a dual-head configuration. And that's all you need.

If your other display is not 1440x900... well, I have a 1440x900 display. I could send you my EDID smile

Re: [SOLVED]Issues EDID and 1440x900 resolution.

Ha. The monitors are different(one is an AL1916W and the other is an AL1916. Supposed to be the same, but the Ebay seller sent me the wrong one). I tried specifing it before, but it was with the old 10-monitors.conf you had me delete. I will search for one specific to my monitor and give it a try. I REALLY appreciate your help so far Gusar.
