This is going to sound really stupid but I cannot figure out how to change the resolution with the nvidia driver. I'm stuck at 1280x1024. I've been using the nv software driver ever since I bought my nvidia fx5200 card and all the resolutions up to 2048x1536 are available under Settings>Display (XFCE 4.3.99). Not the case with the nvidia driver. I was thiking it might be possible with the nvidia-settings tool... no such luck.
Also, I find it a little weird that when I checked /var/log/Xorg.0.log after attempting to boot with the driver, it says something about there not being a "schema" for 1280x1024 when I have the following Modes set in xorg.conf.
Modes "2048x1536 1920x1440 1920x1200 1856x1392 1792x1344 1680x1050 1600x1200 1400x1050 1440x900 1280x1024 1280x960 1280x800 1152x864 1152x768 1024x768"
Also, it's unable to load glx for some reason. I've tried reinstalling the latest stable release and am now using the latest beta. Both don't work.
