Updated xorg-x11-drv-intel packages that fix two bugs and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xorg-x11-drv-intel packages contain an Intel integrated graphics video driver for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System.
The xorg-x11-drv-intel packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.16, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#713767
A black screen could appear when attempting to turn on a Lenovo ThinkPad T500 laptop after suspending it. As a consequence, the laptop could not recover from suspend. The source code has been modified so that Lenovo ThinkPad T500 laptops now recover from suspend successfully.
Prior to this update, arithmetic rounding in the panel fitting algorithm did not work as expected. As a result, the screen was staggered in a diagonal way when scaling up the 1360x768 mode for the Intel Ironlake driver with Low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) while the scaling mode was set to "None" or "Full aspect". This update modifies the rounding in the panel fitting algorithm so that the screen resolution can now be changed correctly.
This update adds support for future Intel embedded graphics controllers and enables additional 3D features.
All users of xorg-x11-drv-intel are advised to upgrade to these updated xorg-x11-drv-intel packages, which fix these bugs and add this enhancement.
