This relates to a Compaq Evo desktop PC running Lucid.
A recent update has upgraded the kernel from 2.6.32-33 to 2.6.32-34.
When booting with the new kernel, video problems occur: the mouse pointer persists on screen, and text fails to display.
Booting with 2.6.32-33 works absolutely fine.
I'm using standard repositories.
The workaround (so far) is to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change the default to 2: this boots using the third kernel in Grub's list, i.e. 2.6.32-33, skipping 2.6.32-34 and its associated recovery mode.
So the questions are:
* Is this an error with graphics drivers in the updated kernel?
* How would I update the drivers in the new kernel?
