    nvidia not working


    Kindly replace [dot] with .
    As I am not able to post links

    Hi
    I have reinstalled bodhi linux because of some reasons. After fresh install, now bodhi is running X in 800x600 resolution. I want 1024x768 resolution so I installed nvidia driver. My nvidia card is nvidia GeForce 7050/nForce 610i. I followed the following guide to install nvidia driver;
    wiki[dot]bodhilin...u.php?id=nvidia
    I used the Manual Installation method. After the installation, I used the following xorg.conf file which I have saved form my previous installation and was working very well;
    pastebin[dot]com/z1H1Tj5N
    Previously, this xorg.conf was working well but now with this xorg.conf file my pc freezes while loading X and I have to press power button to turn it off.

    Can anyone tell me that is there anything wrong with this xorg.conf file
    or
    How can I get 1024x768 resolution?

    PS: As always, I used the nvidia-current dirver while installation. My kernel is 3.0.0-9-generic
    Here is the output of /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    Please let me know I you need any other information.

    Regards

    [ 15.281] (EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
    Are you sure you got the correct driver installed? Was/is the Nouveau driver installed? If yes, then you need to blacklist that before the Nvidia driver will work.

    Open /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Add
    Code:
    blacklist nouveau
    Save and exit. Reinstall the Nvidia driver and reboot

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    As MikeTbob says. Also, the current xorg servers do not need the xorg.conf files as they will interrogate the hardware on boot to see what they need to know. I assume you have a fairly recent display - if not then you may need to manually configure your xorg.conf file.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I tried removing xorg.conf and also blocking nouveau but X freezes while loading.
    After removing xorg.conf then I can not get 1024x768 resolution. I am on 800x600

    Problem solved

    I used the following xorg.conf and problem gone...

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    HorizSync 30-50
    VertRefresh 50-120
    
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 24
    Modes "1024x768"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection
