ubuntu 10.10 折腾控制台 | struggling with console in ubuntu 10.10

I've installed ubuntu 10.10 in my newly bought notebook, the console was perfect during installation, that was the wonderful 1366x768, as well as the beautiful splash.
I think everything was still ok just after installation, until now, I see just a blank screen, or some ugly 1024x768.
What I've done, that maybe relative, are just some tweak on grub2, and installing fglrx.
After failure in adjustment of grub2 for several times, I reboot with the live cd, and I found that vesafb is not used, and radeon is activated as the video driver.
hwinfo --framebuffer indicates that the vbe of my graphic card does not support 1366x768, however I did see that with live cd. I guess all of this should thanks to radeon and kms, while I've no idea about details.
So I just removed fglrx and rebooted.
Then come back my lovely splash and 1366x768 console.

By the way, the gnome tetris works quite well with radeon, but not fglrx.
