Wow, I didn't know 6.8 was even out! </crash-boom>

Anyway, I'd like to have seen a little more information in
your posting:

       ---is xorg the only thing that got upgraded?
       ---what window manager/environment are you using?
                *Was it upgraded?
       ---what does your xorg configuration file say in re:
                *screen definitions
       ---what is your "normal resolution"?

IANAE, but I'd wonder if, since X seems to at least
run, if the issue isn't "resVgaShared" so much as
a change somewhere else.  Gnome, KDE and I think
XFCE all do some X management themselves (as do
some others, probably) and a change in your WM might
have caused your screen resolution to change also....

Of course, either of us could be barking up the wrong
tree on this one.
