View Full Version : [ubuntu] video issues...

fresh install of 8.04...

I'm helping out a buddy with a new install and the live cd had this great recognition on the built in video card. I think it is a VIA something or other that I saw when we still had XP installed.

now it started in low graphics mode, and I got it to load with 800x600, but can't figure out what I need to do to get it working like it was in the live cd...

any help?

and see if anything comes up.
