I'm testing 12.04 on an office desktop. This machine has an integrated Intel i810. This very machine used to run Ubuntu (or Kubuntu) quite well, until the Natty Narwhal release, when the X server started freezing.
This seems to be caused by an issue with a call to the video BIOS, which can be circumvented by disabling the option DisplayInfo.
I tried creating an
xorg.conf by using
Xorg -configure, but it produced an error after trying to make a file. I did have a file, and I put it in
DisplayInfo false (maybe it wants "disabled"?), but it wouldn't boot at all until I removed that
There is no
10-monitor.conf file either. All I want to do is set the appropriate option so that my Intel display doesn't freeze.
Is there any other way I can disable the DisplayInfo?
