i have the same problem, (im testing 1.9.51 on an athlon 2.2 1gb ram, wifi atheros, and a video board MSI 5200) i choose the desire resolution (1280x1024) but no way......the resolution stays in 640x480 with the nvidia new driver, same with 173, with the older ones, i could use 800x600 reso.
I tried to install the nvidia web site driver, but at the installation menu, at some point, it says that i need to recompile the nvidia-kernel or something like that (sorry im just a newbie on linux, i only had some experience with xubuntu).
I edited a bit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but nothing, any sugestions or something to guidme to a solution?

apt-get install nvidia-settings

Hi elpiloto!

You wrote:" I edited a bit the xorg.conf"
What do you mean by editing it "a bit"?
How about posting your xorg.conf here? so anybody could read it.


have fun!

I have the same gpu, the only thing i had to do to get it working (ecomorph too!) is dowload latest nvidia drivers from nvidia website (290 version) install it as root and get done! I'm usin elive topaz and worked perfectly
