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.
