OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 - Unreadable Video (Higher Resolutions)

Mar 10, 2011

Just did a new install of 11.4 over top of my 11.3 and when I reboot into the OS it seems to boot just fine but the video is unreadable. When I boot into the failsafe the screen has a lot of gitter and the monitor tells me it's not in preferred mode of 1680x1050 at 60hz. All resolutions higher than 1280x1024 are unreadable. Tried booting nomodeset as I've read previous ... no luck. I'm still learning linux.

OpenSUSE Install :: Grub At Higher Resolutions?

Jan 30, 2011

Just bought a new 1080p monitor (1920x1080) and it works fine in OpenSUSE 11.3. Problem is before I get the KDE start screen everything is not full screen. Now, I checked the rest of the forums and I cannot find a full list of widescreen or 16:9 grub resolutions.

Does anyone have a list of what's supported?

OpenSUSE Install :: Higher Framebuffer Resolutions Not Available During Bootup/console - Nvidia Properietary Driver?

Jun 26, 2011

I'm using the 270.41.19 nvidia properietary driver for my Geforce GTX460 graphics card. I have a Sony TV connected to my HDMI and I know it supports the 1920x1080 resolution. Yes it works after gnome or other DE loads up.

But during the GRUB screen and the bootup console - It defaulted to a 640x480 resolution (as it always does with the nvidia prop driver). I usually used to check the output of hwinfo --framebuffer and choose the resolution by appending the right vga=0xabc parameter.

But now I have a problem since hwinfo says the best widescreen 16:10 framebuffer resolution that my card supports is 1280x800. Here is the output from hwinfo --vbe which should give the info about both my gfx card and my TV.

The initial nouveau driver was able to output native 1920x1080 during the bootup on the console without issues, so I guess even the properietary driver should be able to output (If my understanding is right the nvidia module loads later during the bootup and only is required for the X but not for the console itself).

Ubuntu Installation :: Plymouth Load Screen Producing Video Artifacts On Higher Resolutions

May 1, 2010

I have a problem with Plymouth. It works pretty well on low res, but on higher resolution some strange video artefacts appear - see attachments.

I use ATI proprietary drivers, if it has something to do with it.

The resolution is set in /etc/default/grub like this:

edit: reducing colour depth doesn't help /end edit

I don't know whether it has anything to do with the current problem, but Plymouth used not to appear at all until I followed these instructions (or actually I took them from another thread but I can't find it at the moment and these are the same).

I don't know whether it's possible to take them during booting so I've taken these photos with a mobile and retouched in gimp to remove reflections (more or less), and since I'm no pro photographer nor photoshop/gimp master they look as they look. They should do to demonstrate the problem, though.

Ubuntu Installation :: Missing Higher Resolutions After Install (Sandy Bridge I5-2500K, VGA)?

Jun 2, 2011

after installing Natty on my brand new shuttle with Intel's Sandy Bridge Core i5 (2500K), everything works fine except setting up a higher resolution fitting to my screen.All I need is a 2048x1152 resolution, but all the display configuration in the hardware section of the system settings offers is 1024x768, 800x600, 848x480 or 640x480.The monitor is connected via VGA since it doesn't have a DVI or HDMI plug.Is there a way to tell the system there is more capability? Do I need a different driver? What and where can I check this?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Install 11.4 Video Unreadable Except For Safe Mode ?

Mar 30, 2011

My old desktop had a power supply that was going bad, so instead of replacing it again I decided to buy a new PC Desktop. So I ordered from and got a grodd AMD computer without a operating system on it as I didn't want that Windows 7 scheisse on it. So I downloaded SuSe 11.4 64 bit, and installed it last night.

At this point I will tell you the new PC has an NVIDIA GeForce 61100 GPU for graphics with 128 mb memory. Also I use an HP W2007 wide display monitor running 1680 by 1050 resolution, that I got over 3 years ago when I was running SuSe 10.2.

So during installation last night of 11.4 when it did the first boot after install, is when I first saw the symptom which is an illegible white screen, with about 100 3 mm lines on it. So I shut down, rebooted and brought it up safe mode and all is fine. The error screen only appears if I boot GRUB with the Desktop or Xen option and only when the boot would switch to display my desktop.

I recall a similar illegible video monitor issue when I first got the display over 3 years ago, and fixed it by changing a SuSe video configuration option, but being I am getting old and I didn't write down what the configuration file was I am at a loss. All my previous SuSe installations never had a problem as I would always choose the Update rather than new install option thus that configuration file was brought across the many releases installations. This video configuration parameter had the monitor resolution sizes in it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Adding Higher Resolutions To 9.10

Feb 8, 2010

I'm trying to add a higher resolution to my system. I've tried to edit xorg.conf but I think I'm wrong. Everytime I edit and reboot, it tells me I need to run in low graphics mode for now. Now I'm trying 'xrandr.' I was able to create a new mode just fine, but when I try to add it to the appropriate output, I get this:

prog@ubuntu:~$ xrandr --addmode LVDS1 1280x1024_50.00

Major opcode of failed request: 149 (RANDR)

Here's what xrandr returns:

I don't know why it puts it in TV1. There's two of them because I tried two different refresh rates.

Ubuntu :: Lost The Higher Resolutions For Computer?

Apr 30, 2010

I lost the higher resolutions for my computer. The highest available is 1360x768 (which doesn't work well) and currently I'm using 1024x768. Before, I had 1280x1024 working well and I even had higher resolutions available in nvidia-settings. I've ubuntu 9.10 with nvidia drivers (185.18.36).

I've read [URL].. but not necessarily all of it or understood all of it. I've tried dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and the xrandr stuff but nothing has changed, except what xrandr reports, regarding the addition of two modelines 1280x1024. In the end, I suppose something has corrupted some file but how can I figure it out?

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1280 x 1024
default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 50.0*
800x600 51.0 52.0 53.0
680x384 54.0 55.0

Debian Multimedia :: Cannot Set External Monitor To Higher Resolutions

Jul 8, 2011

I recently got a new external monitor for my laptop, and connected them by VGA. This is what 'xrandr' tells me:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1440 x 900, maximum 4096 x 4096
LVDS1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
1280x800 60.0 +
1024x768 60.0 
800x600 60.3 56.2
640x480 59.9
VGA1 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 510mm x 290mm
1920x1080 60.0 +
1600x1200 60.0
1680x1050 60.0
1280x1024 75.0 60.0
1440x900 75.0 59.9*
1280x960 60.0
1280x800 59.8
1152x864 75.0
1024x768 75.1 70.1 60.0
832x624 74.6
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 72.8 75.0 66.7 60.0
720x400 70.1

However when I try to change to some of the higher resolutions, such as 1920x1080, all I get is a corrupted and flickering image. As indicated above, I am currently on 1440x900@59.9h,z but for some reason 1440x900@75hz doesn't work. The same seems to be true for 1280x1024. The three resolutions above that all cannot be selected properly. I tried setting the resolution to maximum in Windows XP and it worked, and my video games console can set it to 1080p, so I don't think there is anything wrong with the monitor. Is there anything I can do or is this some kind of bug or limitation of the graphics driver or something? The graphics chipset of the laptop is an Intel 945GM, which I believe should be capable of displaying 1920x1080. I am running debian unstable with what seems to be the most up to date version of xserver-xorg-video-intel.

Slackware :: 1920x1200 With Vesafb - Higher/wide Resolutions

Jan 8, 2010

So I have been running uvesafb for a while now with no complaints, but klibc hasn't been updated for about a year. I contacted to the author and he said that he will have an update in the coming weeks. However today I was googeling around and to make a long story short, I have successfully been able to get a 1920x1200 console resolution with just the plain old vesafb. This is good news but I am also confused because I've been told many times that is not possible for vesafb to do higher/wide resolutions.

OpenSUSE Install :: Doubled Login Screen In Different Resolutions

Jan 24, 2011

One day, when I switched on my notebook Lenovo X400 with Suse 11.3 I observed that the graphical login screen is divided vertically into two equal parts - each in different resolution. There are also two mouse pointers. They work simultaously (eventhought I can see only a half of each). The problem is that when I login there is no effect, it goes back to login screen. I can login into text terminal. But if I go to "init 3" I still can not startx and the next time I reboot the same problem comes again. Shall I somehow reconfigure X windows or method of logging in?

General :: How To Calculate Video Resolutions

I am familiar with common video resolutions like 320x240, 640x480 and 720x480. Sometimes I want to use other video resolutions when encoding videos. Is there a formula to calculate the unknown value for the heightxwidth if one value is supplied? For example, if I want my video to be 480xWidth, what value should Width be to get proper aspect.

Hardware :: Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty And NVidia Video Card Resolutions

May 31, 2009

I've got Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty + lxde. My video card is Nvidia FX 5200 (Nvidia driver ver. 173.14.18). My monitor is a lcd Acer mod. x193w (widescreen). At present I cannot choose the 1280x800 resolution as I was used to when I was using Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy. Nvidia X Server settings offers several resolutions (included the native monitor resolution, 1440x900) but not 1280x800 as before. I wonder why. I even added mode 1280x800 in the Section "Screen" of xorg.conf but it was ignored.

OpenSUSE :: Configure Dual Monitors Of Different Resolutions On 11.4?

May 4, 2011

I have been trying to configure dual monitors of different resolutions on 11.4 the Nvidia configuration utility does not know where or what to save anything anymore and goes wonky. Trying to use it is a dead end for me. X11 is a mess. What happened to SAX and things like this that were part of openSUSE and just worked? Supposedly we X11 got better. I think it's got over complicated and much worse. This stuff just worked in 11.1 and KDE 3.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI Dual Monitor Xinerama With Different Resolutions

Apr 20, 2011

Today I bought a new monitor (IPS236V) to use it to watch movies and tv while I'm working on the other one.. I thought it's the best to activate Xinerama which could be done easy via CCC. But I'm not able to change the resolutions now as these panels are disabled in CCC. The first monitor is set to its native resolution, but the second is something lower.How can I configure both monitors to there native resolution?

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 - KDE 4.6.1 - Higher Fan Noise?

Mar 21, 2011

My setup:
Acer Extensa 5635ZG
openSUSE 11.3
KDE 4.6.1 (from KDE:/Release:/46)
Nvidia G105M (with 260.19.44 driver)

After the upgrade to KDE 4.6.1 I can hear that the fan in the laptop is working harder, and hence is noisier. Before I had KDE 4.5.x (from KDE:/Release:/45).

With top I can't find anything that takes up more CPU than before.

At the moment I use Compiz instead of kwin. Kwin was a little choppy for me. (Same fan noise though.)

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Available Resolutions Vary Depending If Monitor Is On Or Off When Starting System?

Aug 10, 2010

I just installed 11.3 in one of my computers and I've noticed the resolution was sometimes changing after a reboot. First it was switching from 1280x1025 to 1024x768 with the default deivers, then I thought installing Nvidia propietary drivers would solve the problem, but now is switching between 1280x1024 and 640x480. After several attemps to fix it I found out that the system uses the correct resolution if it starts with the monitor switched on, but falls back to 640x480 if it's off when the system boots, which is almost always since I usually control this pc trough vnc.

I Tryed to specify the available resolutions in xorg.conf, and adding the preferred mode option, but it didn't help. I tryed also to use xrand in .profile to force 1280 resolution, but it doesn't work either (when the system is started with monitor off, xrand only shows 640x480 and 320x240 as available resolutions, and so does the system preferences panel).

Here's the xorg.conf I'm using right now:

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 256.35 (buildmeister@builder101) Wed Jun 16 19:25:59 PDT 2010
