Problem with monitor resolution!!!


Hello,

I am having trouble with my S3 UniChrome Pro video card, the problem is my resolution, the default for this card is 800x600 but, I want to put it on 1024x768 that is the max, but, once I manage to do it when I restart it goes back to 800x600 and I want to be on 1024x768 for ever please help!!!, I am using Uubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, please help!!


I install the drivers installing the following:

Code:
sudo apt-get install subversion build-essential automake1.9 libtool pkg-config xserver-xorg-dev libxvmc-dev x11proto-gl-dev libglu1-mesa-dev x11proto-core-dev libxvmc-dev xserver-xorg-dev x11proto-gl-dev libgl1-mesa-dev cvs

Then this is my xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Wide Screen"
        Device          "S3 UniChrome Pro"
        Monitor         "M190"
        DefaultDepth    24
        Option          "MonitorLayout" "TFT"
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           24
                Modes           "1024x768"
                ViewPort        0 0
        EndSubSection
EndSection
when I put glxgears I get the following

Code:
7812 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1561.979 FPS
9162 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1832.316 FPS
16757 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3350.341 FPS
17252 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3450.300 FPS
8502 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1700.322 FPS
glxinfo | grep render

direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI UniChrome 20060710 x86/MMX/SSE2


But, the problem is when I put glxinfo:

The problem is on bold, is that why my resolution keeps changing from 1024x768 (the one I want) to the default 800x600 (the one I dont want)???????
