Losing video settings - NVidia
Greetings - I'm using Debian Lenny & gnome desktop. I have an older 32 MB NVidia video card that shipped with my Dell PIII.
Anyways, this has happened to me a few times. I start out with video settings set at some resolution that looks like 1280x1024 on my 17" monitor. This setting comes automatically with the install and I just leave it there. But Gnome doesn't last longer than a day or two before my resolution reverts to 800x600. Furthermore, when I go into my Screen Resolution Preferences, I have only 800x600 and 640x480 as options, and my refresh choices are 56 & 60 Hz.
Anyways, I haven't tried driver re-install yet, at this point I'm just wondering if this is a known issue. This machine is used primarily as a dev server, and dicking with the video drivers never seems to be a high priority, but I suppose I should try and solve it.
