Description

I can't run a resolution of 1280x800 on my notebook and so I'm using vesa instead.

Please add the following id to the nvidia driver:

device Display controller (VGA compatible controller, VGA controller) [3|0|0]

vendor 10de: nVidia Corporation device 01d7: G72M [Quadro NVS 110M/GeForce Go 7300]

Has soon has it is compiled into the image I'll test it out to see if it works. Thanks!

Here's a diff that should add the proper devid.

This patch treats it like the other 7300's and 7400 go as well - I would guess it works, but I don't have the card to test.

It doesn't work. We already tried to include the id, but the card doesn't work like the others. BTW There's already a ticket opened, if I remember correctly.

I see mention of that explicit deviceid in #927 - along with some issues mentioned on other chipsets entirely (that don't seem to have been removed if they're also causing problems)

There is also mention of it in #2995 - but clearly that issue is due to the lack of this ID being recognized by the driver, and thus the user was reporting an issue with vesa mode in the screen preflet.

What I don't see is that anyone has ever committed this change so that others can test it. Since the issues mentioned in #927 were experienced over 2 years ago - is it possible that something may have been fixed since then?

In any case, the patch is here for those who would like to try it out (unfortunately the reporter said in IRC that he does not build his own images, but would wait for one to be built with this device supported).

I also recommend maybe adding it to the driver and commenting it out with a pointer to the bug in question (along with the other deviceids that are also failing)...

Maybe I didn't explain myself properly: I did test the change on a laptop with that chipset, and the system locked up after booting up. I agree with you with this, though:

"I also recommend maybe adding it to the driver and commenting it out with a pointer to the bug in question (along with the other deviceids that are also failing)... "

Great stuff! Since hrev30598 that the nvidia driver works with my native 1280x800 resolution. This ticket can be closed.
