Intel i810 on-board graphics card bug, with Ubuntu server 7.04 running Ubuntu-Desktop
I recently loaded Ubuntu server 7.04 onto a machine with an Intel i810 on-board graphics card. After installing the OS I installed Ubuntu-Desktop using "Sudo apt-get install Ubuntu-Desktop" because I wanted a GUI enviroment until I setup WebMin for remote management.
After installing I booted up and just got a bunch of purple, white, red and green lines running vertically across the screen.
I tried setting the driver to "i810" but it didn't help. Apparently this is a known issue with the i810 card, but no one explains how to fix it. If you know how to fix this problem please let me know.
