Thank you for the reply Lee!
The only suspicious line in XFree86.0.log I can find is this:
not using mode "1024x768" no mode of this name
I googled - many users seem to have similar problems, but I didn't
find a working solution for me. I have the screen resolution problem
on a regular basis on the 4 machines here when installing different
distros, but I never saw this "no mode of this name".
Thanks & best regards,
