Hei, I created a new thread to don't pollute the other one with OT.

"For that matter, where does one head for help in 14.04? I have a couple of
issues on my test machines.
One is with video resolution that seems kernel level on a rather old
machine and antique nvidia card."

To list video modes available in your systems you can try:
# sudo hwinfo --framebuffer

Once you find the resolution that suites your taste you just edit
/etc/default/grub and feed GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480 accordingly; don't forget
to run # update-grub afterwards.

"The other is giving strangeness with overlayfs.
Neither is a show stopper, as I can break the overlay and update the
kernel/grub and the other is simply stuck in 640x480, but it would be nice
to get another pair of eyes on each problem to ensure it's a bug and not a
keyboard-chair interface issue."

What's your issue here?

I would like to note that IINM this list isn't for support but instead for
providing a way for developers to interact with us the users.
My email concerning autofs was sent here as this is the email address
provided by the packager of the tool in hope to learn where to get support
with it.
