I do to. The first time i installed it, it asked me the desire
resolution but not anymore... the desired resolution didn't work as i
spected, and my monitor is from 2002, i don't think it's quite old. I
selected 1152x864 @75Hz and it's not working, i have 1024x768 @90, and i
just don't get it... maybe it's about the driver thing? I have an Nvidia
Gforce FX5500 and of course i haven't installed the original driver, but
the one that Xorg has.

That's what I thought as well when I first saw the posting, but before
suggesting to drop the priority, I tried it myself. Even in low priority, the
package configuration never asks for screen resolution, color depth etc.

So I tried to type
but I am not asked the questions I know from first set up of the xserver:
which resolution and which refreching rate do you want?
I do not think that I need to work on another package, xserver-xorg
should be the right. But why am I not asked this questions.
The same with exim4. At the first time you can choose if exim should
handel all mails or just the lokal ones etc. I am also not able to select
this behavior by using dpkg.
What am I missing?
Try dpkg-reconfigure -p low xserver-xorg
Perhaps some of the questions are at a different priority than they used
to be. Not sure.
I can confirm that xserver-xorg is not asking for resolutions and stuff
like that. I've tried it myself some time ago, and I had to manually
edit the xorg.conf file to suit my new monitor.
