*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 3731 ***

After spending several more hours on trying to get Ubuntu too work I
have run of ideas and patience. Ubuntu Fiesty Fawn is obviously a broken
and deeply flawed release.

I managed to get a resolution of 1152x864 at 85Hz after a great deal of
effort.  Many times editing xorg.conf within the nano editor, only to
have it all ruined when I went to test out beryl. I installed the Nvidia
drivers, rebooted and was locked into 800x600 at 50Hz again! No idea
where Ubuntu pulled that from. It totally ignored the xorg.conf.

If that wasn't bad enough, I had to remove my wifi card as Ubuntu kept
pestering me with [bcm43xx: Error: Microcode "bcm43xx.microcode5.fw"]
midway typing in the terminal.

Fiesty Fawn is far far worse than Dapper Drake. At least I managed to
have that running about a month before the flaws became too much.

I wish you well Bryce. You certainly have one heck of a job ahead of you
trying to fix this sorry excuse of an operating system.

Useless Ubuntu - that is what it is and I am no fan of M$. At least XP

Ubuntu is broken, and wasting hours on trying to get the resolution and
refresh rate to work is simply a joke. Mark Shuttleworth and Canonical
need to get their act together and get the basics right - screen
resolution, bit color and refresh rates are basics. Basics Ubuntu still
haven't sorted.

How Ubuntu can release Fiesty Fawn when it is so Flawed is remarkable.
It just does NOT work.

I wish it did work, I really do. Wasting hours messing around with
xorg.conf is not my idea of an operating system that works!
