Hello. I have a laptop with Intel GMA965 graphic card. I'm on ubuntu 8.10. I don't install ubuntu 9.04 only and only for the intel issue. Has been an update for fixing this problem? thanks

Intel graphics problem will not be fixed in jaunty itself, but there are fixes you can apply yourself such as http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1130582

Note that the problems seem largely confined to video playback, so if you don't watch video much, you may be OK with 9.04.

Otherwise stick with 8.10 or wait for 9.10
