    The reason for getting low resolution, most probably is that you are using vesa instead of nouveau drivers (2D nouveau drivers should be installed by default in ubuntu - check if you have xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package installed).
    You could try deleting two Screen sections which identifiers are "Screen1" and "Screen2" (only leave Screen0) in xorg.conf.new, then rename xorg.conf.new to xorg.conf, copy it to /etc/X11 and try to restart. For some reason, you have two additional screens and two additional VGA cards listed, both of which are using wrong drivers for some reason.
    The package xserver-xorg-video-nouveau is installed; actually the package (I think it is more precisely a metapackage) xserver-xorg-video-all is installed. I've also installed the package nouveau-firmware, don't know if useful. Also the package nvidia-common is installed - I didn't uninstalled it beacuse it requires to uninstall ubuntu-desktop as well. However it seems that nvidia drivers shouldn't be installed (nvidia-current, nvidia-glx-* etc. are all unselected).
    With this package configuration I edited xorg.conf.new and copied it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. The file content after edited is attached at the end of this post. However it doesn't work. During start up the screen flash two or three times and then stops. With Ctrl-Alt-F1 I am able to login in the virtual terminal and then I deleted xorg.conf thus allowing X to start correctly (but always in low resolution) after reboot.
    What's wrong? Why it seems so difficult to have nouveau in my computer? Actually I have always used proprietary nvidia drivers and never tried to use nouveau, but with 11.04 I was not able to use Unity, so trying nouveau.

    Re: HOWTO: Nouveau - Open source 3d drivers for nvidia graphic cards

    After the flashing, copy /var/log/Xorg.0.log somewhere else (so it wouldn't be overwritten) and then show it here.

    BTW, ubuntu-desktop is just a meta-package. It only depends on all the ubuntu default packages, but doesn't contain anything. It's fairly safe to uninstall it.

    Nouveau troubleshooting guide says it might be because of incompatible libdrm version. Did you compile and install libdrm yourself or only used libdrm provided in ubuntu repositories?

    No, I didn't compile it, just used that one in ubuntu repositories. Shouldn't it be compatible with latest kernel, also provided by ubuntu repositories?

    According to this bug report last year there were some problems with ubuntu packages. If you are using only ubuntu packages and have completely removed nvidia proprietary driver, maybe you should file a bug report?

    How can I be sure that I am using only ubuntu packages? I installed my system more than 1 year ago and I have made a lot of installing\uninstalling operations until now.
    BTW I tried to jump directly to part B, assuming that nvidia drivers are correctly removed (and my system still doesn't accept to use nouveau beacause drm and other stuff is not correctly installed). But unfortunately I am still blocked in step 2!!! I am not able to install the latest linux kernel. I downloaded linux kernel version 2.6.39-rc4-natty 32 bit as explained in the howto (3 files). But after installing and rebooting the new kernel doesn't start. During boot it stops and caps lock led keep flashing and I had to hard reset and boot with the previous kernel (2.6.38 ). What's wrong with my pc?

    You can check the origin of the packages you have installed with synaptic package manager. Just click on "Origin" button in the lower left corner.

    You could also try compiling kernel modules with 2.6.38 and it might work. Just don't forget to install "linux-header" packages for your kernel (they might be installed by default, but I am not sure about that) before compiling.

    Re: HOWTO: Nouveau - Open source 3d drivers for nvidia graphic cards

    Hi! Great "How-to"!
    So... just a question!

    I compiled the driver with your procedure under Natty and a vanilla kernel 3.0-rt.

    With some problems, but at the end the procedure was ok!
    (if you want I can write some operations that I followed for be able to compile)
    My problem is after the system boot.
    Gdm doesn't start and if I try with textual interface to do a "startx" command, nothing to do... The error message say "(EE) No devices detected. Fatal server error: no screens found"!

    I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1520 notebook with NVIDIA GeForce 8400M

    Can you help me?!

    Thanks in advance!

    Christian

    After you get "Fatal server error: no screens found" error, copy /var/log/Xorg.0.log somewhere else (so it wouldn't be overwritten) and then show it here. Ie:
    Code:
    cp /var/log/Xorg.0.log /home/YOUR_USERNAME/
