[Bug 558569] Re: Unable start as live cd Lucid Beta 2

I, too, am experiencing trouble with Ubuntu 10.04 with a 2.6.32-21
-generic-based installer on:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8623 [Apollo
CLE266] integrated CastleRock graphics (rev 03)

I am doing a text mode netboot install and not setting up X. The
installer is unusable with distorted broken dialogs and unreadable font.
I tried booting the kernel with video=vga16fb:off,viafb:off, but that
did not fix the broken screen.

I understand this is still an open issue, but I am at least looking for
a workaround to be able to netinstall machines in text mode.
