LXer: Ubuntu Lucid gets kernel mode setting right (by automatically turning it off) f

Published at LXer:

Kernel mode setting hasn't been "fixed" for older Intel video, but at least the kernel knows not to turn it on when you're running an i915-type chipset (of which i810 is seemingly a subset). This is how things should have been handled from the beginning. Better late than never. This remains huge for Linux and for Ubuntu. Why? Because the potential new user with affected Intel chipsets can now grab a live CD, start up Ubuntu and actually have it work. They won't be stopped and immediately turned off by a totally black screen.
