Best distribution for intel GMA 4500MHD graphics card
I own a vaio notebook with intel GMA 4500MHD graphics card. The distribution I'm using right now is ubuntu 10.10 but I'm starting to have problems or rather little annoyances (again). After a couple of hours of being online, when I try opening the home folder the window shows that it's opening on the taskbar but closes instantly and opens after maybe 5 - 10 minutes. Vuze also crashes if I try to maximize it from the tray. Also, other programs start behaving the same or crash (such as eclipse).
Yesterday I had the same problem + the mouse stopped working and my external hdd were not recognized anymore. I resolved it after restarting a couple of times.
In the past I had problems with ubuntu's hibernate/suspend resume which happen because of X.
I need help trying to find out what's causing this issue (if possible) and also advice on what other distro has better support for intel graphics card. I chose to go with ubuntu because I can get to work after installation and it also looks nice, so I'm leaning in that direction with my distro choice.
