Hi guys. Diuring my experiment I take a look at my various config and doubt went in my mind about video driver: - actually is not possible installstion nvidia driver - I look at my config of X11 xorg.conf, and this is; Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Generic Keyboard" Driver "kbd" Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "it" Option "XkbOptions" "lv3:ralt_switch" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Configured Mouse" Driver "mouse" Option "CorePointer" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" EndSection Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Default Layout" Screen "Default Screen" EndSection this is the result of install. My actual video resolution is right for my screen 1280x1024 60 Hz guido@64studio:~$ lspci -vv show: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0640 (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Unknown device 82a5 Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- SERR- guido@64studio:~$ lspci 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0640 (rev a1) So I think: WHat video driver is in use ? vesa ? where is write ? I have try to set "nv" but nv dosen't support my card and xserver start at low resolution. Can you help me to understand something about what video driver is in use in mu system Thanks Bye Guido

Hi Dave. Meditation help to relax and concentration, but sometimes people around us and our families think we are crazy. Infact I just have note what you tell, but I don't now how to use it to fllund and solve the problem. I'm looking for new kernel or complete evolution of actual so Icuold instal nvidia proprietary driver. To experiment I hace tried to install CCRMA on other partition and nvidia driver it's ok with that kernel. I hope same thing soon into 64Studio , because it's meore similar to Debian_ubuntu system. Thanks for your help. Bye Guido

Hi Guido, Patience is my middle name. I meditate on *Life the Universe & Everything* at least once each day:) We need to research more on your link messages. Unknown device is there a couple of times. Guido's Xorg.0.log You're doing brilliantly. I would be lost completely on an Italian forum. Cheers! Dave.

You've got quite a few *Unknown device* messages there Guido, you need to google on these devices to find out more. First of all BackUp your xorg.conf so you have something to fall back on. $ sudo displayconfig-gtk is interesting! I've only used it once but it configured my xorg.conf ok and added modelines. See Post: xrandr gtf modelines & Distrohopping Cheers! Dave.
