    Re: Possible movement on VIA P4M800 graphics bug

    I have the same chipset here, but I added a used Nvidia 6200 graphics card a few years back. I installed Trusty Lubuntu on the system a couple of weeks back, and it now runs way better than it ever did running XP.

    Thanks cariboo907.

    Ok!! It worked. I removed gdm and now lightdm is passing me to lubuntu-desktop on this VIA chipset graphics onboard chip.

    Re: Possible movement on VIA P4M800 graphics bug

    I have a similar chipset that was misbehaving earlier. It seems to be different enough to be working with the latest update.

    Code:
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. CN896/VN896/P4M900 [Chrome 9 HC] (rev 01)
    Previously I was using the vesa workaround. Removed everything vesa (I thought) and found that the monitor wasn't working AT ALL after login. The culprit was displays.xml in ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml, which had a refresh rate of 0, for some reason. Once that file was gone, all was OK.
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    Had you joined that bug report as "effects me too"?

    I guess it doesn't matter at this point but I'd personally appreciate a comment at that bug report stating that the latest openchrome driver is known to work with P4M900

    That should narrow things down for the dev involved.

    @kansasnoob:

    Done. (I meant to do it yesterday but somehow got sidetracked.)

    I was already subscribed to the report as "affects me too".

    Many, many thanks

    I'm going to retest with the latest Lubuntu either tonight or tomorrow because I noticed the addition of some odd "gnome" packages recently, so while I have a new image it's always worth spending a few extra minutes to check things out.

    Seems to be fixed based on testing both Xubuntu and Edubuntu Alpha 1
