The project I'm working on requires Ubuntu 10.04 x86. Virtual box isn't cutting it. I'm running a Core i7-2600S on an Intel HD61AG motherboard, with the H61 Express chipset.

Fresh 10.04 install.

Problem 1: No eth0. Did some modprobe magic with an e1000e driver I found, problem solved.

Problem 2: In Monitor Preferences, I get "Monitor: Unknown" and I'm stuck in 800x600 or 640x480. Unacceptable!

My experience with linux is very limited, and one more fruitless apt-get will make my head explode.

Thoughts?

Thank you!
