Luis (and everyone else),

I'm taking the lead for graphics on the Ubuntu kernel team. I'm happy to have bugs filed
on launchpad for these, and you can contact me directly or send email to the canonical
kernel team list, which I'm including in this distribution.

I'm tracking issues with a couple of platforms using the i915 driver as delivered
both in the karmic release, and in the 10.04 kernel. I hope to have them resolved soon.
Testing on the non-pinetrail platform this morning, the issues were resolved with the
patches queued for Linus's next merge. Knowing that Linus' tip solves your pine trail
issue is good information. Thanks for your testing work!
