I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with onboard Intel 965GM controller.
My clean install of Hardy Alpha 5, subsequently upgraded daily - now Beta - installed the
'vesa generic' driver. When I tried the 'xserver-xorg-video-intel' driver (intel), X
wouldn't start and I had to 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-
xorg' to get X back again (it defaulted to the 'vesa generic' again).
According to the Dell guys on linux-desktops at lists.us.dell.com:
You should be able to apt-get the "xserver-xorg-video-intel" driver from
Hardy main repo to get full 3D acceleration. I am surprised why that
didn't happen automatically for you when you installed Kubuntu Hardy?
I filed a bug - Bug 215282. Feel free to add to it.
