8th Gen Intel (UHD 630) and Centos 6


Hello All,

I am having issues with 8th Gen iGPU and CentOS 6.9. I have updated to the latest ML kernel and it hangs on Xstart. Any successful usage of kernel 4.16 on CentOS 6? I also tried the latest CentOS kernel (2.6.32-696) and it will boot but it appears to be using the vesa driver instead of i915 driver. Is there any possible chance to get the intel driver working? The major issue is that I cannot upgrade to CentOS 7 or another distro.

These are NVR surveillance systems that are developed by a third party and they continue to use CentOS 6 and older hardware. If any more info is needed, I will be glad to post. Thanks to all, in advance, for your help.

by the time you fix EVERYTHING that the 4.? kernels will break you will have most of Fedora 28 ( in alpha/beta testing)

basically you would NOT have a cent6 install anymore

install Cent6 on slightly older hardware like it was intended to use

After the Cent 6.6 ( or 6.3 ) update there was NO NEW hardware support added

Hi John,

Thanks for the reply and the info. Unfortunately, our hardware distributor is currently discontinuing 7th Gen for 8th Gen processors/motherboards. I guess I will have to get on the software developers to start implementing CentOS 7.

When it comes to Intel hardware the Linux Kernel tends to take all autonomy to support this platform. In the kernel config under Drivers->Display Drivers->Intel there is a option for alpha quality support for new hardware. I suggest you select this option and rebuild the kernel. Yes it doesn't bode well with production level confidence but its worth a try.

Thanks for the tip, linuxbawks. I appreciate this. The funny thing is that I can get it to boot with the latest CentOS EL6 Kernel (2.6.32-696.23.1) using a dedicated GPU. Of course I get the "CPU not verified by Red Hat" at boot but it comes up fine. I can even get proper display settings for my monitors such as resolution, refresh rate, monitor name, etc. I am, if at all possible, not wanting to use a dedicated GPU for the systems though. It's just one more piece of hardware that can fail meaning the potential for more RMAs from our customers. But, the way it is looking, this may be my only route until the devs get their butts in gear and get on a newer OS....Thanks, again!
