In Ubuntu 10.04 the os crashes frequently by displaying "Blank screen blinking with white stripes problem". This problem exists fpr Intel 8xx series chipset users. Now i want to know whether this issue is resolved in ubuntu 10.10 or not?
According to the site below, the issue is largely resolved on Maverick but "sadly there is a kernel-bug, which prevents showing the mouse-cursor on 855GM-based systems". For these there is a quick fix dkms package that you can install.
