Issue #970 has been updated by Georgios Papadopoulos.
Well, according to Device Driver Utility, I do use (by default (?)) the vgatext driver. But as I have written above, everything is quite blur and the scrolling (say in a browser) is simply awful. Moreover, many fonts seem to have a "granular" structure.
Are you satisfied with your that driver?
At this point, I have to say that a few months ago, when I tested the LiveCD of OI_147, everything was working (e.g., Compiz). So perhaps, we should find that driver...
Support #970: Graphics Card ...

I do know that I raise a controversial issue, regarding graphics cards, but the reason is twofold: on one hand I would like to understand why a open source driver doesn't work and on the other to make a suggestion (if I may).
My Toshiba Satellite A300D-14P laptop come with an ATi Radeon HD 3200 (I think, a "mobility radeon"). Now, the Device Utility does recognize it and in the package repositories, I can find the corresponding driver. The problem is that is doesn't work: everything is quite blur and the scrolling (say in a browser) is simply awful.
I understand that only nVidia cards are supported, but (again, if I may) I think that OI could give a chance to those systems which have other cards.
Many thanks in advance.
