Hello everyone, how are you all doing? I am doing great on this Saturday afternoon and I hope all of you are as well. In case some of you didn’t notice, our web site has moved to a bigger, faster dedicated server which is why most of you had trouble accessing our web site for the past 72 hours, but we are not officially done with moving our files and database over to the new server. Anyway, today we take a look at Intel, the company that will probably be here for the next 1000 years, read on…
Intel has announced a new release of their Graphics Installer for Linux utility, which gives users an easy way to upgrade Intel graphics drivers on supported operating systems.
This time around Ubuntu 14.10 (and Fedora 21) are formally supported, with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (and Fedora 20) entering ‘deprecated’ status.
Deprecated status allows users to use the tool to remove or install an older version of the graphics stack.
Those running the most recent Long Term Support release are warned off using the latest version of the tool entirely. Under “known issues” the Intel Open Source Group notes:
“Packages installed by the Graphics Installer for Ubuntu 14.04 “trusty” may no longer function properly …therefore, we discourage use of the Graphics Installer on Ubuntu 14.04.”
Utopic users aren’t left in the blush and can make full use of the tool to upgrade to the Intel 2014Q4 graphics stack.
Released in late December, the 2014Q4 stack brings a number of improvements to the standard Intel Linux 2D and 3D drivers, including:
- Improved support for Broadwell and CherryView CPUs
- Prearations for Skylake processors
- Backlight and power sequencer fixes
- Revamped Vblank handling
