Binary package hint: x11-xserver-utils

I upgraded my system from Maverick to Natty Beta. I take daily updates every day.

Since then, When you boot the system, with the external monitor attached, the external display flickers badly and the screen is unreadable. I hit <FN> - <F7> on my Thinkpad X201 to reset the display, and then I see the login screen correctly, on both internal, and external.

After I log in, the same thing happens, screen flikers and unreadable on external monitor. I hit <FN> <F7> again, and I get the 800x1024 default screen, which I then have to use 'Monitors' to increase the Resolution to the mode I like on my external monitor.

This happens everytime I boot or login.

Regards, Stefan Stasik
