    Hello Guys,

    what's wrong? Where is the driver for 13.10? Didn't Intel spend some money to compile an actual driver? We are wating since about two months. Does somebody have a compile instruction or so?

     

    Regards,

    The driver for 13.10 release should be released anytime now.

    Take this as a big fat warningsign that you better not buy intel, HDMI is not working!

    sorry about my agry comment. I haven't tried compiling the drivers myself. I just tried installing the 13.04 package which didn't work.

    I am a bit dissapointed with the fact that we have to install drivers independently from the mainline kernel. I am buying intel because it used to "just work" with linux. Is there any chance we will see the 01 driver integrated with the vanilla kernel?

    The install of the 13.04 package fails because of failed dependencies. Would it be possible to provide a package which works with the 13.10 version of ubuntu? Even better would be if 01.org had a package repository so updates are delivered automaticly until it gets integrated in the kernel.

    I would be interested to see the installation failure report.

    Support for 13.10 is already done, it is just going under QA process, then it shall be published.

    There is a package repository, h++ps://download.01.org/gfx/ubuntu/ but you need to specify the release (suite) and component (main) you are targetting, so for Ubuntu 13.04, you can use the following repository entry in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/intel.list:

    ​​

    Make you you have APT https transport installed (apt-transport-https) and you should be fine to use the package manager tools. When 13.10 gets released, you can point repositories to 13.10 on Ubuntu 13.10.

     

    Note: apparently spam filter does not allow me to post links, replace h++ps with https

    I am getting an error when configuring the repositories to see what is in it. I tried first with putting 13.10 as release because I am currently on 13.10 but it didn't work. I also tried putting 13.04 but it appears it is still not finding the files on the server:

    Fout h++ps://download.01.org 13.04/main Sources
     
    Fout h++ps://download.01.org 13.04/main amd64 Packages

    ( it's in Dutch saying error downloading failed)

    So it's not yet working for me but it's giving hope knowing that a repository is available (under construction?)

    Sorry, I realize I got a typo when telling the repo URL, try instead with:

    01 driver development work integrates with latest Linux kernel mainline development.

    GNU/Linux distributions usually ship an old (stable) kernel, so what 01.org provides is really a backport of latest changes in mainline kernel to work with operative system Linux kernels (which are a bit behind development version).
