Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Bang on target, the new version of Ubuntu Linux is available for our downloading pleasure. Amongst various changes it sports updates to the installer, improved networking, and a new 'Mobile USB' version geared towards the blossoming netbook market. Grab a copy from the Ubuntu website, and check out Linux Format's hands-on look. Or the one at Simple Thoughts. Or the one at PolishLinux. And probably a few other websites as well.

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg? Uh...that's been gone for, well, this is the 3rd release where that doesn't reconfigure your graphics. It's just for keyboard and mouse. X doesn't even need an xorg.conf anymore. It's supposed to auto-config. Did you by any chance install drivers from ATI's site instead of from the repos, then forget that you need to recompile them on kernel updates?

omg, actually it worked for me a week ago while trying to make a graphics card display something on the screen.
And i didn't even have time to install the amd propietary driver! Actually i remember i had to turn off that driver with 8.04 to make x work.
I'm starting to think it's something related with hardware combination (x1950 pro and nforce3 250 chipset).
