The Story...

In the last few days, I choose to upgrade my Asus EEEPC 900 to EEEBUNTU NBR 3.0 (based on Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop Jaunty).

After the installation, it was unbelievable how it worked badly...

The mouse pointer was tilting (as the mouse ball was unclean since 1990... Amiga like style!)...

Anyway all the system was very very very SLOOOOWWWWWWwwwww.

Oh My God!!!!!

Well, the solution was behind the corner... as far as 2-3 hours of googling!!! (Sigh!) Here it is!!!

The problem was the EEEPC 900 i915 video card related to the driver included into Jaunty!

If you like, you can find more info here:
