Please could something be done to prevent breaking that display adapter 
twice in a row?

6.04 worked, 7.10 was broken, 8.04 alpha half-worked, 8.04 beta totally 
broken again.
I reported 8.04 alpha Live CD & system crash and showed how to repair 
Result : 8.04 beta again runs into an unrepairable crash.

Detailed palmares:
6.04: worked beautifully at 1024x768
7.10: totally broken
8.04a: works, but autodetects 800x600 only, needs my 1024x768 patch
8.04b: totally broken again instead of repaired, at least a patch must 

Full details :

"Please report bugs so they can benefit other people.", they say.
And indeed VIA is not an unknown display adapter, is it.
I did.  I spent my time, gladly.  I even found a workaround.

Could someone please pass by 197514 and have a look to at least stop 

Thanks in advance for an at least bootable LTS Live CD.
