Bug Description

Updated my x220 and now I only have 1024x768 as an option. Seems like we're using vesa, not the intel driver?

Remove the i915.semaphores=0 from your kernel boot line and everything should work again :)

Changed in xorg (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid

Good spot! Thanks Chris. Strange given I had that parameter in there to stop me getting GPU lockups. I hope whatever caused those is now fixed then :)
