Re: Using DVI LCD monitors in fedora

Oh, oops... apparently this was a case of me needing to be told RTFM. :)
I forgot to switch the driver from "nv" to "nvidia", so that's why DVI wasn't working.
All set now.
Thanks for your help.

I recently installed Fedora Core 2, and expected that DVI monitor support

But it doesn't work - I can get console on DVI, but when I start X, I
just get a blank screen - or sometimes it goes berserk and starts
flashing weird gray static.

My graphics card is a GeForceFX 5200, and I have installed the Nvidia
driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run).

Assuming you made the necessary changes to your xorg.conf as mentioned in the NVidia Readme?? Most importantly changing the driver in xorg.conf from "nv" to "nvidia", and maybe change the frequency settings to match your Panel.

You "may" need to add these couple of lines to your xorg.conf, I had to do
this to get my DVI to work:

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0"

#       Cure Blank Console screens
Option      "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV"

The last one fixes Blank console screens on some Fedora setup's, Some output
from your X logs may shed some light on the problem.
