Re: monitor detection maybe not working - another try

I'm running sid.

My monitor stopped going to the correct resolution some upgrades ago. I have an

nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX - nForce GPU] (rev a3).

I'm researching many things from this list etc. to attempt to solve the problem but one concern is that I don't think my monitor is being detected correctly. ddcprobe seems to give the correct info but I don't think this info is being used.

I may not have been very clear. I don't think I'm having any trouble with nVidia drivers. I believe I could write an xorg.conf file that would work for my monitor. It's my impression the new way for most hardware is auto-detection. udev, etc. The current read-edid code is not working for my monitor. ddcprobe shows that it is possible to read the info about my monitor. (ViewSonic VA703b) (see the ddcprobe output in another post in this thread.

I believe that if my monitor info were being read correctly I would have no problem with monitor resolution. Is is possible that I just need to file a bug against read-edid?

Thanks for all the help so far.
