nvidia-settings is crashing while setting up "Clones"

Bug #364302 reported by Artur Rona on 2009-04-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
nvidia-graphics-drivers-180 (Ubuntu)
nvidia-settings (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nvidia-settings

I have connected both LCD on D-Sub (native 1440x900) and TV (native 1280x768). I want to get different resolutions on displays in this form:
- one common desktop
- separate resolution for LCD 1440x900
- separate resolution for TV 1280x768
When I get Clones for TV, nvidia-settings is going down. There's a gdb:
$ gdb nvidia-settings

I've posted a new version of the -nvidia driver to our xorg-edgers PPA,
would you mind testing it either on Jaunty or Karmic and see if it
resolves this bug?

Get nvidia-graphics-drivers-180 - 185.18.14 here:
