Bug#748641: installation-reports: Garbled screen on Dell Inspiron 1501

Yes, the installation succed partially, because 80% of times the garbled screen did not allow me to use the operating system.
Could me explain how to file a bug report against the linux kernel?

So you're having this issue once you've successfully installed your
system, and not during the installation process, right? I suspect you
may want to be filing a bug report against the linux kernel instead.
