Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

Before upgrading to kernel level 2.6.32-24, I was unable to get screen resolution better than 1024x768. After the upgrade I can get what I want via System Settings / Display: 1280 x 1024. But the resolution setting is lost after a reboot; after the reboot the resolution is again 1024x768. The correct setting is preserved over logout, however.

Paul Abrahams, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in the development release from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p xorg-server REPLACE-WITH-BUG-NUMBER

Please note, given you already have done this in a prior release, performing this on a release prior to Trusty would not be helpful.

Thank you for your understanding.
