Bug Description

I'm not able to start the X server after installing the nvidia-current drivers (via jockey) on clean Kubuntu 10.10 installation. There is only a terminal login prompt after system boot and I have to delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf and run startx to start the X server. Unfortunately the X server starts in low resolution mode.
