"After figuring out how to get the screen to work on my Toshiba
Satellite 1100-S101 and Gateway Solo 1450 laptops — both with
Intel 830m video chips (aka 82830 CGC, also called i830m by many)
in Ubuntu Lucid Alpha 2, do you want to know how things "improved"
in Alpha 3?
"There's no improvement. Instead it's a massive fail.
"Yep, another volley of "improvements" that undoubtedly helped
someone had foisted on me the mother of all regressions.
"The closest I was able to get was a working display with an
invisible mouse pointer. Unfortunately I had forgotten which
combination of parameters I typed into the boot line (a combination
of turning off kernel mode settting one of two ways and setting a
vga=xxx resolution), and after trying just about every VGA number I
could find here, I've got nothing; no video at all on this Intel
830m system in Ubuntu Lucid Alpha 3."
