    8.10 Nvidia resolution problem

    I have just upgraded from the live CD and still I had to manually configure X. It's still not right though as every time I reboot my settings aren't saved. Even if I run Nvidia X from root then try to save it I get the following: Segmentation fault.

    What does this mean and how do I fix it? Please help

    When running nvidia-settings from the command line:

    # sudo nvidia-settings

    Then attempting to save the configuration using 'Save configuration to file' button:

    $ sudo nvidia-settings
    [sudo] password for jason:
    Segmentation fault

    Here is what I did to work around the problem, and to get nvidia-settings working again:
    Code:
    # sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.orig
    # sudo nvidia-settings
    Then use the application to make whatever changes to your configuration. When you press the 'Save to X Configuration File' button you will be prompted to choose a destination for the file. Enter /etc/X11/xorg.conf and press OK.

    Once the file has been saved, exit the application. Then make sure you have an xorg.conf file:
    Code:
    ls -l /etc/X11/xorg.com
    Then logout of your user session. At the login screen, press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to force a full restart of the X-server. Your new X11 server settings should now take effect.
