Default Mini 10 - Random crashes after installing ubuntu 9.04 - 01-07-2010, 02:16 PM

*apologies - posted in main but thought others might see it here.

i've recently installed ubuntu 9.04 on my mini 1010. its got the gma500 graphics chip and so was a real pain getting the resolution to 1024. the video is still choppy and cant seem to install/play flash videos. as well as that the machine also seems to just randomly hang - anywhere between when its been on for as little as 5 minutes to an hour. i can still move the cursor but nothing actions and no keyboard commands function either. im pretty new to ubuntu so wouldn't know where to start even investigating what the issue could be.

anyone got any good ideas?

You could try "vesa" video driver (basically "Safe Mode" video driver). Performance will be lousy, but it should be stable.
