Intel video driver produces visual corruption on 945GM chipset


Pada awalnya, saya ingin meng-update VGA driver untuk chipset Intel 945GM pada ubuntu-gutsy 7.10 di notebook saya melalui apt-get. Akan tetapi saya selalu gagal mendapatkan driver tersebut meskipun sudah mencoba dari beberapa source server. setengah putus asa (*halah*) akhirnya saya memutuskan untuk menginstall manual paket xserver-xorg-video-intel.
Begini kira-kira kronologisnya:

$ uname -a
Linux night-eyes 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Sun Oct 14 23:05:12 GMT 2007 i686 GNU/Linux
$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
$ aptitude show xserver-xorg-video-intel
Package: xserver-xorg-video-intel
State: installed
Automatically installed: yes
Version: 2:2.1.1-0ubuntu9.1
Priority: optional
Section: x11

Terlihat bahwa driver sudah terinstall, right? nah lalu setelah reboot, entah kenapa proses booting berhenti sebelum masuk ke Xwindow, lalu kemudian hang, crash, boom, bang…T_T kemudian saya pilih booting lewat safe mode, akan tetapi tetap tidak bisa juga. asumsi saya error sepertinya karena driver tersebut bentrok dengan oem-config atau di Xorg, berikut pesan errornya:
$ cat /var/log/oem-config.log

Akhirnya dengan terpaksa kembali memakai Xorg.conf sebelumnya dengan driver milik oem-config semula, :(( hiks! Ternyata bug intel video driver untuk chipset 945GM ini sudah ada yg melaporkannya.
Jika teman-teman ada yg bisa membantu saya, bisa konfirmasi lewat email di fatal_error84@gmail.com atau lewat YM! ID:sir_arif84
