I ran the following commands (again)
sudo sed -e ‘s/\sfeisty/ gutsy/g’ -i /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
12:12 AM Started downloading.
12:30 Installing all the packages. Downloading from the Gutsy repositories at 6MB/sec didn’t take a long time.
12:42AM I’m concurrently downloading Linux Mint while all the packages continue to install.
12:46AM DONE. Reboot.
2:45AM Ohsh!t… Houston we have a problem. I’m gonna rant here for a second. When I use the brand new awesome thing that smells of a combination of fresh horse manure and burning hair called “Screens and Graphics Preferences” and I select my monitor as shown:
Notice the little description text that shows that I’m choosing an LCD screen that ONLY displays in a native resolution of 1680 by 1050?
Now, see the list of available resolutions once I save that setting:
Where the hell is the 1680 by 1050 option? NOT THERE!
Now, I know somebody is going to say ‘oh well just go and edit the xorg.conf file and you should be all set.’ Here is my preemptive response:
When is the last time you had to edit the registry in Windows to add a resolution option?
I rest my case.
