Default Re: non root user resolution settings reverting to default.

netllama, your suggestion worked.

Here's the background.

I'm just installing linux for a HTPC on a clean disk:

Attempt 1:

Installed Fedora Core 6, then yum updates, then NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746,
logged in as "userx" (ie the user that was created during the install.) Could not get the resolution to stay.

Attempt 2:

Again on a clean disk:

Installed Ubuntu 6.10 , then apt updates , then diabled the nv module then NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746,
logged in as "userx" (ie the user that was created during the install.) Could not get the resolution to stay.


Now after your suggestion, I have created a newuser, logged in as them, changed the resolution and guess what ? it stays as 1280x1024.

Even weirder, now when I log in as the original userx their resolution is now magically kept at 1280x1024.


No idea, what's that all about but I guess I now have a workaround.

Thanks for your help.
