    Apparently other things have also started to fail, such as the now limited support of the touchpad. Is this a signal of the end of life of this laptop or end of life for Ubuntu on machines that are a few years old?

    I follow your advice using the first fix and it solved my problems. Thanks!
    i am using Dell Inspiron 700m which had Intel 82852/855 intergrated graphics Device.
    I am sure for those who use this graphics display will have the same problem and can be fix by this step.

    PC-kid, have you tried the workaround suggested on the post #2 ? (http://newyork.ubuntuforums.org/show...97&postcount=2)

    Otherwise you may try other alternatives from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Bugs/Lucidi8xxFreezes.

    Le's hope it will work for you.

    Latest kernel (2.6.32-22generic) did nothing for me either. As I've posted elsewhere on these forums, I've resorted to using a mainline kernel until this issue is fixed.

    Re: 10.04 graphics problem, Intel 82852

    After writing a about a french workaround, I tried first the https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Bugs/Lucidi8xxFreezes workaround. It seems to be very well for me and my VGN-B1XP.
    I don't now if it would be better for the system to use the new kernel instead, could somebody explain me the difference ?

    To Maachi : I've got the same computer than your and don't notice what you said about touchpad, could you explain ?

    Thanks to all.

    Hi all !
    I tried the soltion with new kernel and it work fine on my VGN-B1XP, so i think it's better not to change modeset but to work with the new kernel. what I did exactly :

    (thanks to Xdoomer)
    j'ai effectué avec succès les indications de son post #12 sur http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=390979



    1)upload kernel 2.6.33 lucid here : http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/ma … 3.3-lucid/

    linux-headers-2.6.33-02063303-generic_2.6.33-02063303_i386.deb
    linux-headers-2.6.33-02063303_2.6.33-02063303_all.deb
    linux-image-2.6.33-02063303-generic_2.6.33-02063303_i386.deb

    2) write files on an USB key

    3) upload CD Alternate.

    4) Install alternate CD en mode minimal (mode texte).5) Install finished :
    reboot, and at boot press maj to access grub menu then e to edit first choice, write i915.modeset=1 at the end of line, then ctrl+x

    copy files in personnal directory
    sudo dpkg -i linux*.deb
    6) reboot

    7) Instal ubuntu-desktop :
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop (peut être besoin de "--fix-missing" ...)
    (Did nothing for me)

    the latest kernel usually has the latest updates, bug corrections and new functionality for many devices.

    My touchpad failed temporarily to scroll (in the vertical dimension on the far right), but now it seems to work again!
    I miss though the possibility to suppress accidental movement of the cursor while typing. This worked on previous th of Ubuntu with help of an extra application, but I cannot find the application on the Lucid repositories.
    Ciao, Cheers, /Macchi

    Latest report:

    The laptop Sony Vaio VGN-B1XP running Ubuntu 10.04 Long Term Support crashes totally if I click on a web link with an mp3 file with Firefox!

    Lets hope the new kernel arrives soon with a solution to this. Manual installation of a new kernel is not a good solution because we have lots of different systems and I want to keep them configured in a similar way.

    Re: 10.04 graphics problem, Intel 82852

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 with the 82852/855 GM video. I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 and everything is working fine. Even wireless. It's asking me to update to 10.04.1 LTS and everything that I have read on these and other forums tells me that I should just leave the machine at version 9.10. Does this sound right?
