  • Yes, I know F17 is EOL but we still have machines running it and very stable.

    I need to run the 1.0.1 installer for HD P4000 driver

    I downloaded 1.0.1 installer and installed it:

    then ran:
     
    $ intel-linux-graphics-installer
     
    Which brought up the installer window.
     
    It ran some checks.
     
    1st 2 succeeded
    The distribution check failed.
     
    $ /usr/bin/ilg-config-test 
    Distribution:
    {
        distributor: 'Fedora'
        release    : '17'
        codename   : 'Beefy Miracle'
        config-id  : [Fedora Beefy Miracle]
    }
    {
      errors: (nil)
      sources: []
      INSTALL: []
      install: []
      upgrade: []
    }
     
    Why should the 1.0.1 installer fail on F17?  That is the installer for F17.

  • Hi - I can't get to the config file the installer is downloading right now, seems to be some
    odd network issue, but my guess is there's not section in it for f17 any more (based
    on the symptoms you've described).

    The installer itself doesn't change a huge amount from release to release, most of its
    decisions are driven by the config file (left at ~/.ilg-config after an installer run), and if
    that no longer had a section in it for Beefy then it would result in the problem you are
    seeing.

  • Yes, the section for Beefy is no longer in there.

    Here is the listing:

    Can you show me what needs to be added back in here?
