Kernel Log: Updates to Intel graphics drivers and util-linux

Filed under
Linux

Intel developers have released version 12.02 of the Intel Linux graphics package. It supports OpenGL 3.0, offers better embedded DisplayPort support, and fixes several stability problems. Support for Ivy Bridge processors is now classed as stable. Ivy Bridge is the successor to Sandy Bridge CPUs and was scheduled for release in April, though, according to the latest information, this has now been pushed back to May or June. The new graphics driver package sees an adjustment to the version numbering scheme, with the developers planning to increase the frequency of new versions in the future – previously, updates tended to be released approximately every quarter.

The driver package includes the recently released version 2.18.0 of the Intel driver for X.Org's X Server. Other components include the new Mesa 3D 8.0.1, which rectifies a number of bugs in the also fairly new Mesa 3D 8.0. The package also includes the 3.2 Linux kernel and libdrm 2.4.31, as well as the libva 1.0.15 and vaapi-driver-intel 1.0.15 video acceleration components. Intel tested the parts of the package in conjunction with X Server 1.11.1.

Fedora: The Latest

  • Korora 22 Flash Update
    As we announced when Korora 22 was released, Adobe Flash is no longer included by default.
  • Fedora repository for Doom stuff: Zandronum, Doomseeker, CnDoom
    I had a bit of free time over the last few days, and looked at the current state of the art for Doom on Linux. The awesome Rahul Sundaram has been looking after several Doom-related packages for a while – including the Chocolate Doom package – but there are some things that seem to be commonly used these days that we didn’t have packaged. So I packaged them up, and put them in a new repository!
  • CUDA 7.0 enabled programs for Fedora 22
    I’ve udpated the CUDA version in the Fedora 22 Nvidia repository, it now contains CUDA 7.0.28 along with the cuFFT 7.0.35 patch. Note that from this version, CUDA is x86_64 bit compatible only, so there are no more i386 packages. There is still the cudart library available for 32 bit, but I don’t think it’s worth packaging.
  • Secure Boot — Fedora, RHEL, and Shim Upstream Maintenance: Government Involvement or Lack Thereof
    Note that there are parts of this chain I’m not a part of, and obviously linux distributions I’m not involved in that support Secure Boot. I encourage other maintainers to offer similar statements for their respective involvement.
  • Remi repository is changing
    The "remi" repository exists for > 10 years, it have changed a lot, and some recent changes worth to be explained.
