[sf-lug] problems with refresh rate under Intrepid

Okay, I have come up with a short term solution to my problem.  I have
clicked on

System > Administration > Hardware drivers

and I have activated the non-Free ATI/AMD FGLRX graphics driver.  I will
have to hang my head in shame and use that under Intrepid for another month
or so until Jaunty is final and ready.  Hardy was able to handle the ATI VGA
controller card, and so hopefully Jaunty will also be able to handle it.

But for the meantime, I will be able to avoid having headaches from looking
at a screen with flicker.  That is great.

Thanks to all of you for your help!

I do recommend the Ubuntu Freenode IRC channel, because they are really
quite helpful.

Thanks to everyone who responded on this thread!
