Hi

I'd appreciate help regarding following issue: I've moved from Windows to Mandrakelinux 10.0 (some 250 re-installations/10 days ago :) ; worst problem I have with drivers is problem with nVidia FX 5200 (with tv-out). After I had downloaded new drivers from their site (nv 5336) and installed them, card seems to work just fine, but I cannot get tv-out function. Here's XF86Config-4:

Kernels shoud match, no problems reported while the nVidia installer was building and installing a custom one (for 2.6.3-7mdkenterprise).

I've crashed down X so many times playing with these drivers; it makes me feel like i'm running WXP in the box, again :)
Anyway, i'd appreciate an idea where to start from in order to have my tv displaying DivX again. Thanks

Well, it's working now (partially...)
I've edited my XF86Config-4 device part:

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "NVidia"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "DPMS" "on"
Option "MetaModes" "1152x864, 1152x864; 1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "TwinView"
Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
EndSection

Actually, it is not working like this, but when I want to watch movies on tv, i log as root, delete first option in "MetaModes" so it looks like this:

Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480"

reboot, and the tv-out is working. I'm glad I don't watch movies too much, it's a lots of typing everytime I want to see a DivX. Anyone has an idea how to work this around or make it more comfortable (while keeping my 17'' monitor and 1152x864 resolution on) ? Also, if I change option "TwinViewOrientation" to "Dual", tv becomes primary display, and X cannot be started... Have to repair that too (suggestions are most welcome)... Thanks
