I was having issues with the new kernel so I decided to try installing Nvidia-current instead of Nvidia 173.
Now my video doesnt really work, it is stuck at some awful resolution and 8-12 bit colour, display manager doesnt detect anything.
Changing anything in display manager does nothing except i can change the module used.
Switching back to 173 doesnt help, nor does using neauvou drivers.
Help, I have to boot into windows until this is solved
... good old reliable windows
