[2003-10-31] APM and Graphics Card

The graphics card upgrade caused me immense trouble with Linux - the machine would freeze whenever the X server exited or when virtual console blanking kicked in. After much troubleshooting and hunting over the Net, I finally managed to solve the problem by disabling APM in the kernel. Phew! I was not terribly excited by the knowledge that the card is made by "Robanton", apparently a Taiwanese company whose site works no more.
