Slackware Intel HD packages
 
Hi all,
Are there any packages for the open source Intel HD drivers from here http://intellinuxgraphics.org/2012.02.html

If not, has anybody built these? If so, just how problem prone was it? I cannot bugger up my install, as its my main system.

As a side note, I am asking about these to try and remedy a small problem. When I play video, or do anything remotely graphics intensive, there is a very feint clicking sound coming from my ThinkPad..... weird. Hopefully, a driver update will fix this.

Well, the intel open source drivers are already bundled in the Slackware iso. The package name is xf86-video-intel.

No clue about that clicking sound though. Are you sure it's related to Slackware at all?

That's the thing, I'm not sure. I do hope its a software problem.

You first consider these:

1. Your platform. What model and version of HD are you using?
2. Your kernel version.
3. Your architecture.

Always backup everything (much your root system files, including your kernel), then you can try. I am running sandy bridge but it is okay. The current version bundled in Slackware 14 is xf86video-intel2.19.

If it is for these 'alone' there is no need to tinker with the whole driver set. Remote operation is highly prone to signal interference. Another possibility is the monitor conditions receiving the signal.

"Don't fix if it ain't broken."

So would you say that it is nothing to worry about?
Thanks
