I recently switched over my netbook to Ubuntu 11.10 and I'm having issues with detecting the graphics chipset.

The closest I've come to finding a solution that does not require messing with git (something I'm not ready to do) is this. However this seems to be for the 915(M?) chipset and I haven't been able to figure out the grub line-change (i.e. "i915.modeset=1") that works for my chipset. Does anyone know which line I should use/or another way to get ubuntu to recognize my chipset?


"i915" is the actual driver for most, if not all, currently supported intel GPUs. Just add i915.modeset=1 as is, and see what happens. You also have to run sudo update-grub after making the changes - something the author forgot to mention.
