Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide
Can I just say: Don't fiddle with the graphics on a production system. I tried a HOWTO on my netbook and it caused the graphics to go much slower. I reversed what I did as well as I could, and it broke Gnome - nothing I've done has fixed it. Reinstall time.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
