new video driver for intel graphics controller
« on: February 10, 2013, 02:21:18 pm »

The current version for
xorg-server is 1.9.5 whilst for
xf86-video-intel is 2.15 but the official online is https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/2012/2012q4-intel-graphics-stack-release
xorg-server 1.13 and
xf86-video-intel is 2.20
I think we are lagging by quite a bit, plus the rendering of images aren't very smooth.
Thanks,
Ted

It's being worked for VL 7.1. Doubtful it will be done for the earlier versions.

I think i read it somewhere that the direct dist update isn't possible, but I am still wondering if that is true?
Thanks
