FC10 MGA G200ew widescreen resolution

Postby mschaar » Thu Jul 30, 2009 11:07 am

Hi,
My Fedora 10 system is equipped with a Matrox MGA G200eW videocard:

[mschaar@jlab1 ~]$ lspci | grep VGA
07:03.0 VGA compatible controller: Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA G200eW WPCM450 (rev 0a)

I have the following mga driver version:
Code: Select all
yum info xorg-x11-drv-mga.x86_64
Loaded plugins: priorities, refresh-packagekit
10 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
Installed Packages
Name       : xorg-x11-drv-mga
Arch       : x86_64
Version    : 1.4.9
Release    : 1.fc9
Size       : 186 k
Repo       : installed
From repo  : fedora
Summary    : Xorg X11 mga video driver
URL        : http://www.x.org
License    : MIT
Description: X.Org X11 mga video driver.


When using the mga driver in my xorg.conf, I do not get any widescreen modes to choose from. Setting the mode lines manually, does not help.

Here's my current xorg.conf:
Code: Select all
# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
   Identifier     "single head configuration"
   Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
   InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
# keyboard added by rhpxl
   Identifier  "Keyboard0"
   Driver      "kbd"
   Option       "XkbModel" "pc105+inet"
   Option       "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   ModelName    "LCD Panel 1680x1050"
   HorizSync    31.5 - 65.5
   VertRefresh  56.0 - 65.0
   Option       "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Videocard0"
   Driver      "mga"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
   Identifier "Screen0"
   Device     "Videocard0"
   Monitor    "Monitor0"
   DefaultDepth     24
   SubSection "Display"
      Viewport   0 0
      Depth     24
   EndSubSection
EndSection


Other details (like xserver version and hardware detection) can be found in the attached Xorg.0.log.

Can anyone help get this card to do 1680x1050?
Thanks,

Maureen
