Sorry, but i have to unload first: I hate Jaunty! I was happy and nice with my hardy installation when I unfortunately decided to move to jaunty cause hardy started to feel a little outdated...

So I made a clean install of jaunty, just to avoid downloading all the intrepid packages from a network upgrade. Since my connection is not so fast, this seemed a good option.

But the problem is that after installation I could only have 800x600 screen resolution. Well, I thought, let's install the proprietary drivers and this will be gone...

How surprised I was when after the installation I could only have 640x480... Running nvidia-settings as root doesn't help either. The top resolution shown is 640x480.

So I try to run nvidia-xconfig as root. The output is below:

$ sudo nvidia-xconfig

Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".

WARNING: No Layout specified, constructing implicit layout section using screen "Default
Screen".


WARNING: Unable to find CorePointer in X configuration; attempting to add new CorePointer
section.


WARNING: The CorePointer device was not specified explicitly in the layout; using the first
mouse device.


WARNING: Unable to find CoreKeyboard in X configuration; attempting to add new CoreKeyboard
section.


WARNING: The CoreKeyboard device was not specified explicitly in the layout; using the first

Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

And the resulting xorg.conf is here. Before that, the xorg.conf was almost blank. Here is my xorg.conf:

I would like anyone that can help me this problem because I am hopeless. Just to know, my video card is a nvidia Geforce FX 5200.

thanks

I will leave here my solution, just in case anyone-else needs it. I had to run a live session of Ubuntu Hardy, install nvidia restricted drivers and then, copy xorg.conf to a usb drive to later restore it on my Jaunty install. This was the only way I could have optimal resolution on my jaunty box.

Hope it can help someone else.
