I installed my Geforce 5200 today and it was looking great, right up to the
point that X windows started and then the screen turned into a pixelated
garbled mess.  Based on what I've read, this is a driver problem.

My Current Driver Version is:


and according to /proc/driver/nvidia/cards , I have a GeForce FX5200

Model:           GeForce FX 5200

According to X, it is using the "nv" driver

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nv"

and I added the configmonitor stanza's but no luck.

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Generic Monitor"
        HorizSync    30 - 50
        VertRefresh  60.0   # Use 50.0 in UK / Europe (PAL-x, except PAL-M)

If anyone has any ideas on how to get the S-VIDEO working properly I would
appreciate your guidance.
