less things. As if the resolution was lower. BTW, this was the case
with the
nouveau drivers too. The video card is a nVidia Corporation G96

This has come up on another list:

"Xorg forces DPI 96 irrespective of the correct DPI detected
by/calculated from EDID."

OK, thanks for the info. However, it turns out that my installation of
the nvidia drivers was not as succeful as I tought. After reboot my laptop
refuses to start X (hangs during startup). After removing the nvidia
drivers and returning to nouveau things work again. This is on
2.6.34.7-56.fc13.i686.PAE.

I would prefer to have the nvidia drivers working so any suiggestions for
a workaround will be greatly appreciated.

best,

/Henrik
