    Hye, i am still new in Linux. I just install Kubuntu on my netbooks. on the boot splash screen its always flickering. sometimes it takes a long time to boot into the OS. is hard for me to open the OS. can anyone help me to solve this problem? i am very mad when its also takes a long time in the bios. the bios is hardly to load the Kubuntu. i installed the lite version of Kubuntu. the iso only sizes in 600mb++.

    Maybe your problem is similar to this issue:

    1 Gb ram....ouch. Okay, so lets look at some other issues. The Intel graphics drivers have been in high development recently..probably because of the Ultrabook craze. Maybe upgrading the graphics drivers will help. I use the Intel Graphics driver instaler on my laptop. Using the NEWEST drivers is usually a good fix. So, to get the newest Intel drivers:
    Code:
    wget --no-check-certificate https://download.01.org/gfx/RPM-GPG-KEY-ilg -O - | \ sudo apt-key add -
    Code:
    wget --no-check-certificate https://download.01.org/gfx/RPM-GPG-KEY-ilg-2 -O - | \
    sudo apt-key add -
    Then download and install the installer from this site:
