I lookd at it, but the Xorg repo (last time I looked) seems to be more
up to date with the various packages…

And reading the comments. It sounds like it’s not working well for many.

It appears to be specific to Ubuntu and Fedora wrt packaging.

They have a faq page here:

I note this link with more detail:

I note they currently refer to these component packages:

  • Kernel: Linux 3.8.2
  • 3D Driver: Mesa 9.1
  • 2D Driver: xf86-video-intel 2.21.3
  • Libdrm: 2.4.42:
  • Libva: 1.1.1
  • Vaapi-driver-intel: 1.0.20
  • Cairo: 1.12.14
  • X Server: Xorg

and they have this to say about bugs:

There are important known fixed bugs and performance improvements coming on newest individual components releases that weren’t included in this stack release.

  • Mesa - 9.1.1 contains important fixes and performance improvements compared to 9.1 validated in this stack
  • xf86-video-intel 2.21.5 contains important fixes for HSW like “Fix scanline waits for Haswell” and “Fix Haswell CRW PCI-IDs”

All these fixes and improvements will be included and validated only on next stack release 2013Q2.

The validation hardware list has this:

  • Intel® 2013 Core Processor (Haswell)
  • Intel® HD Graphics 4000 (Ivy Bridge): Core i7 3610QM, Core i7 3770K
  • Intel® HD Graphics 2500 (Ivy Bridge): Core i5 3550
  • Intel® HD Graphics 3000 (Sandy Bridge): Core i7 2720QM, Core i7 2630QM, Core i7 2600K, Core i5 2500K
  • Intel® HD Graphics 2000 (Sandy Bridge): Core i7 2400S
  • Intel® HD Graphics (Ironlake): Core i5 670, Core i5 520M
  • GMA 3150 (Pineview): Atom N450
  • GM45
  • GM965
  • Q965
  • 945GM

There is (and will be) some Intel graphic hardware in our household. My wife’s Lenovo has an HD Graphics 3000 (Sandy Bridge) with a different Core i5 CPU than the one listed. I’ve purchased a Toshiba Ultrabook with an HD Graphics 4000 (Ivy Bridge) with a different Core i7 CPU than the one listed. But I suspect it would be month(s) before I attempted playing with what is to me an unknown driver ‘packaging’.
