Re: How do I change my resolution?

All good. All three systems (Jessie and Sid) boot in the correct resolutions from both grubs in different drives. I assume the /boot/grub.cfg settings I edited manually will get overridden if running update-grub. So better keep a copy or backup of the settings. Hope the Nvidia drivers get the backports soon.

Hope this helps any other GTX960 user.

Re: How do I change my resolution?

I was able to resolve this problem (accidentally xD) by installing the kernel from backports. I'm not sure if it is 100% safe metod, if you want try it do this:

1. enable debian-backports by either editing /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-jessie-backports.list or running bl-welcome in a terminal window.
2. sudo apt-get update
3. install the kernel and firmware from jessie-backports:
sudo apt-get install -t jessie-backports linux-image-amd64

look at the forums, there's a sticky on how to properly use the backported kernel.
