Bug Description

Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-nv

The update from 9.04 to 9.10 indicated a change to the open drivers since my old video card (NVIDIA TNT2) is not supported anymore by the proprietary drivers. However, the resolution remained at 1280x1024, as it should be.

Recently, I upgraded to 10.04 and my monitor is no longer detected correctly. System > Preferences > Monitors reveals "Monitor: unkown" and only allows me to choose lower resolutions (the highest being 1024x768).

I have tried various changes to xorg.conf but to no success.

I think it is related to either this or the nouveau drivers, either a bug itself or something went wrong in the upgrade process.

Hi Arjan,

Please run the command 'apport-collect BUGNUMBER', which will attach several files we need for debugging.

Arjan, 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 xserver-xorg-video-nouveau REPLACE-WITH-BUG-NUMBER

Please note, given that the information from the prior release is already available, doing this on a release prior to the development one would not be helpful.

Thank you for your understanding.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) I no longer have the necessary old hardware
available to perform these tests.
