View Full Version : [kubuntu] video distorts then machine freezes

Hi,I'm using kubuntu 11.04 sometimes when I watch youtube or other videos, the screen distorts (kinda like a detuned tv) and the machine freezes. the only way to get out is to do a hard reset. I *think* its my video drivers.
How can I get the most up to date drivers?
below is my video card details:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)

or maybe its my Flash plug-in (i'm using the adobe plug in and FF)

It seems to me to be a bug in Kubuntu, I have the same with an Intel integrated.
As we have both Intel, there is normally no additional driver to install.
Maybe it just does not work with our Intels. You could also try to turn off the desktop effects.
