I'm using the 2.6.25 kernel from debian sid, it works fine. I think
ubuntu can use debian packages as well. To solve the screen problem,
you need the following command line:

video=efifb agp=off

If you're interested, you can also try amd64 kernel. You can use it on
686 linux directly, no need to install a full amd64 system.

every time I've tried Ubuntu with a different kernel... it has problems. Ubuntu has a fancy initrd, modules, lots of patches, Upstart as init, and who knows what assumptions about the boot process... but maybe. I could use the kernel from the Ubuntu development branch, if I had any idea how to use APT to upgrade just a few specific things from an unstable package-source and not my whole system (the kernel binary obviously doesn't depend on system libraries, so it should be uniquely easy to do this...). Do you know about debians -- if that's possible?
