    Angry Ubuntu Jaunty and intel 855gm graphics

    Hi guys, I have a problem with latest unreleased Ubuntu Jaunt and my Jaotech touchscreen which has intel 855gm graphic chipset and 1280x800 LCD. I found out that latest intel driver doen't detect LCD and that is why ubuntu always starts in failsafe graphics mode.

    I also tried Ubuntu 8.04 and graphics works OK in it, but I need latest software.

    I know that maybe I can get Ubuntu Jaunty to work if I specify the right configure options in xorg.conf, but don't know how to do it yet.

    Here is working xorg.log from Ubuntu 8.04:

    And here is non working xorg.log from Ubuntu Jaunty:

    I guess a launchpad entry would be better. U does nothing without, or say almost nothing in most cases.

    There was a call for i8xx testing on the ubuntu-x ML recently. https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-x

    This site may be of use to you.

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReinhardTart...telDriverTo2.4

    Basically, it tells you to revert the Intel driver to the 2.4 driver which is used in Intrepid.

    Try this out, and post your results here.
