Update i915 GPU driver to Linux 3.8
Our kernel-side i915 GPU driver is getting old: platforms starting with Haswell are not supported at all. Furthermore, it lacks at least one feature required by Mesa 9.2+.
Current status (2015-01-21)
Konstantin Belousov committed the i915 kernel driver update in r277487.
Caution: The update is based on commit 4d93914ae3db4a897ead4b, which is part of Linux 3.5, not 3.8.
See Graphics for further informations.
- Mesa 9.2 requires a feature (hardware context) we don't have. OpenBSD has this feature.
libdrm 2.4.48 and Mesa 10.0 may use a newer ioctl.
