    Default Intel Linux Graphics Installer

    Is possible to know when (and if) https://01.org/linuxgraphics/ will be available on oSUSE?

    Is possible to do a package request? If yes, can you please explain me how to do or provide links?

    Hi
    The 2.20.19 is already in 12.3? It's the xf86-video-intel driver and
    rest of the items listed in their stack. Using the installer above will
    actually roll back items.... it's an older release.

    Sorry, I badly explained! I'm asking for the tool, not specifically for drivers release. Time goes on and oSUSE won't have always the latest drivers release that Intel will provide. And instead of using the whole Xorg repo, I'm asking if the tool (Intel Linux Graphics Installer) will be available for oSUSE.

    Why would you want an installer when the software it installs is already available? The package malcolmlewis mentioned installs the drivers fine, like said in latest version.
    - Athlon X6 3.6 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 30 GB SSD, 3 TB of disks, GT540, openSUSE 12.2 x86_64 + KDE 4.10 + GNOME 3
    - ASUS A73SD, Intel + GT610M Optimus, 6 GB, 120 GB SSD, openSUSE Tumbleweed

    Anything that can go wrong.... will teach us

    Because that helps a non rolling release distro (just like Ubuntu and Fedora) to have always the latest drivers officially installed.
    In fact, latest Intel drivers were not available on oSUSE 12.2.
    it would be really convenient to maintain the stability of oSUSE and at the same time the latest version of Intel drivers, especially for those who use Steam!

    Hi
    If you look at the source rpm the driver it would install is version
    2.20.12. In openSUSE 12.2 from the development repository (X11Org)
    it's at version 2.21.4.... this seems like the latest to me.
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...86-video-intel

    I suggest you look around the build service first....

    So, in short, are you then saying that it is better to use the OBS rather than the installer?

    Hi
    Yes for sure, the X11org repository would be the one to use, I would
    recommend you don't leave the repository active if you add it.

    Just add, update, then disable. Then keep an eye on it to see if there
    are updates, investigate the changes, then re-enable and update.

    Hi
    That should work. Since it's a development project pointing at factory
    there may be some conflicts at some point, hopefully not.
