    I'm running on Ubuntu 14.04, and wanted to play ftb. After installing your driver, all worked fine (from about 10 fps to about 30 !!).

    But after a system update ("apt-get upgrade"), it seems your driver is no more used. When I launch the "intel-linux-graphics-installer" and after install button is pressed, the software tell me that the driver is already installed. However, I've no real direct rendering.

    Command "lspci |grep VGA" gives :

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)

    How to uninstall your driver in order to install it again ? And better : how to make it default running, even after system update ?

    Thank you for answering (and for the driver, it's a good job).

  • Hi - the first thing to check is the exact kernel you are running: ‘uname -a’ will tell you this.

    Next, check that the i915 module is coming from the dkms updates:

    ‘modinfo i915’ should include the path that i915.ko is loaded from, which should
    have …/dkms/… in it somewhere.

    To forcibly reinstall the installer's module:

    apt-get remove i915-3.15-3.13-dkms
    apt-get install i915-3.15-3.13-dkms

    It should always be the default anyway, once installed, as long
    as you are on a 3.13.x kernel: I'm not sure why it is not for you,
    but perhaps the above information wil be enlightening once we have it.
