I'm running fc19 in 64 bit. After going through the horrible process of trying to install kmod-nvidia, akmod-nvidia, and the proprietary nvidia driver, in an attempt to get CUDA working, I have rolled back to the default nouveau driver. However, not only is my fedora boot sequence not graphical anymore, but X is not auto-detecting my monitor's resolution/gamma anymore and xrandr is limited to three low-resolution modes.

I know it can be manually defined in xorg.conf, but autodetect was working before just fine. Plus, it is supposed to be deprecated, and I frequently change monitors.

Anything I can try? Am I missing a boot flag, or could a necessary file have been messed with? Obviously I can just reinstall fedora and it will work just fine again, but that isn't really solving why this issue would occur.

    Do you have an xorg.conf file? If so, try deleting/moving it. – drs Sep 24 '13 at 1:18
