[Bug 901928] Re: problem with dell inspiron 1012 and emgd - "no screens found" on ubuntu 11.04


Hi, From what I know the 1012 does not have GMA500, so I do not think
you should be using this PPA.  According to the spec sheet is has
GMA3150.  It looks completely different.  I would assume that using this
ppa would hose things up for you.
