[Bug 1234429] Re: 1002:5975 [Dell Inspiron 1501] vertical coloured lines / herringbone pattern on startup


Christopher, I am ready to report this bug upstream.  I have read the
process described in your link carefully but I still have one
uncertainty arising from my general ignorance of these matters; would
you please be so kind as to provide some advice?

The instructions provided in your link suggest that I am "to find the
maintainer of the driver for the bug from the MAINTAINERS list".

I am not sure that this is a driver bug, nor am I sure in which module
it occurs.

Therefore, I am considering following the advice given on
https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/lkml/reporting-bugs.html which

"If you are totally stumped as to whom to send the report, send it to
linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. (For more information on the linux-kernel
mailing list see http://www.tux.org/lkml/)".

Does this seem correct to you?

Thanks in advance.

  1002:5975 [Dell Inspiron 1501] vertical coloured lines / herringbone
  pattern on startup

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This problem occurs intermittently on my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop.
  For instance, on booting the Saucy beta 2 release from USB stick; or
  today, booting the installed 13.10 beta 2 with all updates current.
  But not always. The screen is 100% illegible when this happens.

  WORKAROUND: Wait for the screen to blank on power save; when it is
  reactivated, the display is fine. Or if screen blanking is not
  engaged, close the lid, wait, and open it again.
