A friend of mine has a PC with Windows XP / Ubuntu in dual boot. After the Lucid upgrade, Windox fails to boot (strange lines on the screen after Grub…).
TestDisk saved us:

With the last Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 come a new graphical module: KMS or Kernel-based Mode-Setting.
If you have performance problems in some games like Quake 3 or TCE / Enemy Territory, try to disable KMS.
The problem can also be with the mouse pointer (slowness, lag, delay or inacuracy).
/etc/default/grub then issue the command
vi /etc/default/grub GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nomodeset" update-grub
nomodeset at the end of the
# kopt line, then issue command
vi /boot/grub/menu.lst # kopt=root=/dev/sda1 ro nomodeset update-grub
To install it, you can use CheckInstall which is a bit cleaner than the old
tar -xjvf cdrdao-1.2.3.tar.bz2 cd cdrdao-1.2.3/ ./configure make sudo checkinstall make install
make command can fail because of missing dev packages you’ll have to install.
CheckInstall builds and installs a nice Debian package.
You can also use cdrdao directly.
ps axf shows us the command Brasero is using:
cdrdao read-cd --device /dev/sr0 --read-raw --datafile /home/dooblem/brasero.toc.bin -v 2 /home/dooblem/brasero.toc
Here we go!
