I did now test it... It seems to boot normally, but has unfortunately no effect on the screen problem I have with Mate 17.04. With Ubuntu 16.04 it works ok.

BTW, by time to time, the desktop menu and toolbar at the bottom of screen just dissappear when using Ubuntu 16.04 (happened also when testing this 4.12-rc7). Is there a keyboard command which can toggle them on/off and which I just succeed to press accidently, or is there possbily a bug which causes this...?

Roland,

Please delete the line SwapBuffersWait in the xorg.conf and try it again.

Thanks,

I finally got around to installing the RC7 version. I am running it with the latest 4.12 kernel that Sinan made.

Works very :-)

Still no 3D acceleration on my Radeon 270X but that was to be expected. Right? I am using the fbdev driver in xorg.conf
I now have sound (I think it is the kernel) :D.

One question: I used dd to copy the img to a partition as advised. Took a while but works fine. However I would like to know how to reclaim the rest of the space on the partition. I remember @Xeno writing somewhere that you can use Gparted for that.

Here is my Gparted as it looks now.
Gparted
Gparted
Thank you Xeno!!

Now it is only 3D that is missing. 8-)
X5000 :-)

There is a trick for that. :-D Please decrease the partition sdb3 a little bit with GParted. After that you can increase the partition sdb3 till the next partition. ;-)

Thank you. Could not decrease but increasing a couple of MB did the trick :) .
