Does anybody know how to install Ubuntu Studio in safe graphics mode/compatability mode? I've got it installed on a partition, and it gets the same zebra, out-of-phase graphics that I got with Ubuntu Hardy. Only, Hardy has a safe graphics mode option, which works around this. I've tried "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" after dropping down to root and on the advice of an ubuntu forum posting, but all I get is a series of questions about my keyboard. I need to reconfigure the graphics somehow.

afaik, you can still specify which driver to use in you xorg.conf. I had a
similar issue just
the other day. I used the below mentioned conf and it worked perfectly.

Hope this helps.
