    No background on Optiplex GX270 with Ati 9200SE

    Hi,
    i installed karmic from a daily live image.
    Everything is working except the background.
    It is black.
    No icons can be seen.
    If i switch to the onboard Intel,the Desktop shows a wallpaper,but the PC is crashing und giving no response.

    Anybody else this problem?

    thx

    I also have an Optiplex GX270, and the onboard i865 chip just won't work with Ubuntu and their current driver. Use the older intel-2.4.1 driver. You might test it disabling KMS. I haven't tried that lately.
