[solved] Screen resolution..

First boot up of Waldorf this morning gave me a 1024x768 resolution when my default is 1440x900.
Also I had a few flashes of multi colored lines during boot.
grandr does not give me my default which I have never had this issue with grandr before.

Lastnight before bed I did a dist-upgrade..
Unfortunately I didn't pay attention to what was being upgraded.. nor did I reboot.

What command can I use to see newly upgraded packages?

Re: [solved] Screen resolution..

Well after a second boot.. everything was fine.

I am guessing that something didn't load properly.
Where would I look for an error log for my last boot?

Re: [solved] Screen resolution..

The dist-upgrade pulled new drivers. You can check the install logs on:

cat /var/log/apt/history.log | more 

Press any key to continue scrolling smile

generally, logs are stored in /var/log/

Re: [solved] Screen resolution..

Hmmm nothing really stood out except:

linux-image-3.2.0-2-amd64:amd64 (3.2.15-1, 3.2.16-1)

Other then the new image..
A lot of GTK libs but no individual drivers.

I used smxi for the first time today to get my nvidia driver and it went flawlessly. big_smile

Re: [solved] Screen resolution..

Thank you for the apt/history.log info.. very useful.
Love how it keeps dates and times of all apt uses. smile

I was a little intimidated with smxi at first. It started talking about the liquorix kernel which I haven't used yet,
but all in all it was simple and very handy.
