Hello,

first of all, i thought it would be a smoother installation by using an older computer...but i failed, i hope you know the solutions...
i just installed UbuntuStudio 8.04 on an old Pentium 3 machine (specs in sig).
I let the updates install.
After reboot and a little clicking I was wondering the low resolution. The Monitor has a native resolution of 1280x1024, but the resolution US offers is 800x600 as a max, what I discovered in the system settings. It is not possible to change this to a higher resolution as these higher resolutions are not offered, lower ones only.
Is it possible that I was doing something wrong during installation ?
How to change to the higher resolutions, which were usable under Windows XP with the same hardware ?

Something else I tried was starting Ardour and failed with it. In the new-project-wizard I can see the soundcard (ESS) but accepting these setting were quitted that the soundcard is in use by another user...euh ? what do I have to do now ?
