xubuntu Intel 830MG Driver

I have a HP Pavilion N5445 running Xubuntu 9.04 using GNOME. XFCE was much worse with the problem. The display card is an Intel 830MG. After running for awhile the display will start to have garbage all around the screen especially in the fonts. It will clear up after awhile or when rebooted. I have seen posts about this issue but have not seen a fix. Is there nothing I can do about this?
The fix for me was posted recently in this thread.

What would be the best way to do this?Thanks,LukeAnyone?

  • Other filesystems pros and cons?
    So I've only used Ext3 and 4 on all my Linux installs and I've had no problem with them, but I'm a little curious what do the other filesystems offer? Anyone here using another FS other than ext? I've always been tempted to try another one.google "file system benchmarks" After a little research of my own, I believe I understand EXT4 to be
