    Intel 855GM Fix Help?

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Bugs/Lucidi8xxFreezes

    I have been able to boot using Workaround A (Enabling KMS), however when I try to add the apt sources to install the updated driver, it's failing to get the new packages:

    I've run
    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:glasen/intel-driver
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:glasen/855gm-fix
    (Because I saw it somewhere else, 855gm-fix might not be needed??)
    They successfully imported and added the sources.

    Running apt-get update errors with
    Code:
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net//glasen/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz  404  Not Found
    
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/glasen/libdrm/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz  404  Not Found
    
    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    Any help would be appreciated! It's been a while since I've used linux, but I'd love to get this Inspiron 700m up and running well for my brother.

    Wiki still says the same thing and I'm still getting the same errors. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Never mind, it appears I had some weird entries in my software sources. Removed duplicates and other stuff and everything's installed now.
