    Re: nvidia 9500m gs question

    Ok finally got 1680X1050 resoltuion using the nvidia driver on a 32bit install of 8.04 on my ASUS G1sn-A1 laptop. Here are the exact steps I took, but I take no responsibility if you don't get it to work and have to reinstall.

    1. Start with a fresh install of ubuntu 8.04 32 bit, and run all the advertised patches.
    2. Next, follow theses steps, taken from the good people at nvnews:

    # Install Kernel Sources
    sudo apt-get build-dep linux-image-2.6.24-19-rt
    sudo apt-get source linux-image-2.6.24-19-rt

    # Install Kernel Modules Sources
    sudo apt-get build-dep linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-19-rt
    sudo apt-get source linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-19-rt

    #<!-- Download the 512 patch if your card has 512 RAM, or the 256 if your card has 256 RAM-->
    #<!-- RENAME the file from .txt to .diff as show below, and if your card has 256 RAM don't forget to alter the command accordingly-->
    # Apply NVRM patch
    sudo patch -p0 < NVRM_512M_fix.diff

    # Build debs for linux-image & linux-headers
    cd linux-2.6.24/
    # Modify flavours in debian/rules.d/amd64.mk (rt instead of generic)
    sudo CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=2 fakeroot debian/rules custom-binary-rt
    cd ..

    # Build
    cd linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-2.6.24/
    # Modify flavours in debian/rules.d/amd64.mk (rt instead of generic)
    sudo CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=2 fakeroot debian/rules binary-debs
    cd ..

    3. Lastly, run the deb packages you created above in this order:
    You should then install the 4 debs :
    linux-image-rt
    linux-headers-rt
    linux-headers-lum-rt
    linux-ubuntu-modules-rt

    Thanks again to the people at nvnews.net.
