comment Fixing 800x600 resolution in Toshiba NB510 (GMA 3650) with vesa driver
I tried today 12.10 kernel on 12.04 userspace - packages.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/223/builds , brightness is better than Quantal experience. So Grub GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX="auto" trick works. only issue is the brightness keys do not work.

OK got it. Add a line GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX="auto" in /etc/default/grub

(1) I do not know how to remove $vt_handoff options in /etc/default/grub. (2) yes I could simply edit the boot command line in grub and remove $vt_handoff option. I realized that later. Thanks.
