Re: Display Resolution
Nelson, it looks like your reply did not reach the list, possibly
because it's over 100 kB in size. Please configure your mailer to send
plain text _only_ to avoid that.

Yes, that's http://bugs.debian.org/666468. Upgrading
xserver-xorg-video-nouveau to the version in unstable might help, but
note that you then need a kernel from unstable as well or lose
acceleration, see http://bugs.debian.org/bug=679557.

Yes, it is.

You had best ask upstream about that. They use IRC as their main
support and discussion medium, channel #nouveau on irc.freenode.net.
The Nouveau Wiki at http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/ has some
information about multicard setups as well, but it's down ATM.
