    flickerty bug

    I need some advice on how to file a persistent bug that causes my Dell Dimension 3100 to become 'flickery' during bootup and while in Unity (therefore it is not a Unity bug?)

    This has only happened with the **raring** i386 cycle. I tried to run the Beta lastnight but not only did I get the flickerty bug, the PC froze solid while testing 'live usb' (usage only-non-persistent)

    The hard install on bare metal has been acting the same way since the tool chain update .. so this is systemic with this cycle. I am just not sure if it is the video drivers for Itel or something else.

    Code:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82915G/GV/910GL Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 04)
    Code:
     *-display
