This Ubuntu 12.04 box happens to freeze all of a sudden under regular usage - anything seems to be able to make it freeze. In one effort of seeing what could fix it, I've disabled KMS (Kernel ModeSetting), as recommended here.
In my case, it is:
echo options nouveau modeset=0 > /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau-kms.conf
Since this is an NVIDIA GeForce2 Integrated (on-board) card on an old motherboard (A7N266-VM).
And after it restarts, the only resolution avaliable is 640x480, while before, it could do 1024x768.
I want to know if disabling KMS fixes my problem, so:
How can I have the correct (1024x768) resolution with KMS disabled?
