issues with my nVidia GeForce 6600 after upgrade - no more high-res available
Being in a state of transition (dual boot system) ...from somwhere else... to Trisquel I still have to get to know the principles of the OS. Please bear that in mind when trzing to help me ;-)
I installed Trisquel 4.0.1 Taranis some weeks ago and after some intense information gathering and finally finding the xorg.conf I managed to get high resolutions (higher than 1024*768) out of my nVidia GeForce 6600 using the nv-driver. On Monday I upgraded to Trisquel 4.5 Slaine and gone was my high-res screen. Switching between nv and nouveau resulted in:
- nv: after boot selection I can see the splash screen and then I end up in tty1 text login, tty7 shows some startup text (initializing ClamAV to checking battery) and tty8 is a lonely cursor...
- nouveau: boots up normally but with a resolution of only 1028*768 as if the card is not recognized
During the process of trying to solve this I might have unknowingly messed up my system when using packet manager and terminal commands in a flurry.
I will reinstall Taranis, get my hi-res back to work and get all upgrades to 4.1 before upgrading to 4.5 Slaine again. Then I will report back whether the issue is persistent...
If you have any additional hints how I could try to explore this feel free to post or contact me.
