http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 from 10.04 today. However when I rebooted after the upgrade, I was a presented with the text mode instead of the regular graphical mode. I tried to do sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, but still I couldn't log into graphical mode. Then I copied the xorg.conf.failsafe to /etc/Xorg/xorg.conf and did a startx. This time I was able to log into GNOME, but the resolution was restricted to 1024 x 768 instead of the usual resolution for my Acer Aspire 5738z laptop which has an Intel GMA 4500 M graphics card. Any suggestions? (HowTos)
