Need driver for graphics card: Nvidia Vanta & need to set dpi
Using Debian Lenny 5.0.2
Nvidia vanta graphics card: need driver, need to set dpi
This is my graphics card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV6 [Vanta/Vanta LT] (rev 15)
I am using the nv driver at the moment.
I am having trouble setting the dpi on my monitor.
I am trying to set the dpi to 96 x 96
I used the following formula to configure the display size
25.4/96 x resolution
This is part of my xorg.conf:
#DisplaySize 338.67 270.93 # mm (1280 x 1024)
#DisplaySize 338.67 254 # (1280 x 960)
DisplaySize 304.8 228.6 # (1152 x 864)
#DisplaySize 270.93 203.2 # (1024 x 76
### Comment all HorizSync and VertRefresh values to use DDC:
HorizSync 30.0 - 96.0
VertRefresh 47.0 - 150.0
xdpyinfo | grep resolution resolution: 90x96 dots per inch
with 1024x768 I get 72x72 dots per inch
What am I doing wrong in setting the dpi?
Is nv the best driver for my card, is there other drivers I could try that
would work better?
I don't really need a 3D driver so I didn't want to install the Nvidia
driver if it wasn't necessary.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
You might want to see if there is a native nVidia driver for this board on the nVidia web site. They usually work better for supporting high-resolution graphics than the default nv or vesa drivers.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
