The Ubuntu QA blog has send out a call for help in the noble quest to ensure that ATI and nVIDIA users will have a smooth experience in Ubuntu 10.04. It says:
Do you have a nVIDIA or ATI graphics card? Do you want to help ensure users have a smooth experience if they choose to use the proprietary drivers?
We are looking for committed volunteers to test nVIDIA and ATI proprietary drivers on a weekly basis. The goal of this testing is to catch regressions early in the cycle, and fix bugs before they reach a major audience.
If you want to be part of the team you will need:
A computer with an ATI (R600 or newer) or nVIDIA (GeForce series 2 or newer) graphics card
A spare partition on that system
If you don't have a spare partition you can easily create one
One hour of your time per week
An Internet connection
If you want to take part in this adventure, please, send me an email (ara AT ubuntu DOT com) with the exact model of your graphics card , and I will get back to you with detailed instructions.
Thanks for helping making Ubuntu even better!
P.S. This project is to test the proprietary drivers. If you're interested in testing the free drivers, we don't need installation testing but help is always welcome. Check how you can help at the Ubuntu X team page.
