    3.8.0-13.23 hasn't finished building for all architectures yet, and it won't hit the main repos and show up in synatptic until it does.

    3.8.0.13.27 is a meta package. It's not an actual kernel. Forget about that. It has a slightly different numbering scheme to the actual kernel to allow upgrades to be pulled in on a dist upgrade.

    Screen resolution issue with 3.8.0-13 - lost high res.

    Reverting to 3.8.0-12 I get my correct display. 1366 x 768.

    The max I can get with 3.8.0-13 is 1024 x 768.This is an acer aspire 1410.

    Anyone else get this? Before I raise a bug.

    If your graphic is related to nvidia, then that bug is about a broken link installation:

    Re: Screen resolution issue with 3.8.0-13 - lost high res.

    I can confirm this behaviour with my laptop with onboard Intel graphics.

    Resolution defaults on boot to 1024x768 in both in GDM and desktop.

    Only happened after updating to Kernel 3.8.0-13.

    If I revert to older kernel, the problem disappears.

    No, that is the version number of a simple meta package, not the kernel.
