Max resolution not usable and NV drivers load slow
I'm running Branden's unofficial XFree86 4.2.1 packages and a rolled 2.4.20
kernel on Debian and am running into some problems with X. These problems are
exactly identical in the official 4.1.0 packages and Debian's 2.4.18-bf2.4
image, so I don't think it has to do with the packages.
First, when using NVidia's detonator drivers from source, it takes an
extremely long time (like twelve seconds) to load up the X server. Nothing is
happening on the monitor at that time and after loading everything is fine.
The same is happening on my friend's Debian machine at a local LUG with him
using a Geforce4 and me using a Geforce3. The main logs show nothing out of
the ordinary other than a module named 'GLcore' not being able to load.
Secondly, I can not go any higher than 1600 x 1200, while my Visiontek
Geforce3 Ti500 should be perfectly capable of it with my Viewsonic P220f
monitor. I've tried looking at the Horizontal and Vertical Refresh but
nothing works. It seems to choak in the logs where it talks about EDID and
240 MHz rate (or something, as I can not recall.) I have no idea what this is
or how to correct it; can anyone offer any assistance?
