Updated xorg-x11-drv-intel packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xorg-x11-drv-intel package contains an Intel integrated graphics video driver for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System.


Within the xorg-x11 package, intel-gpu-tools has been upgraded to upstream version 2.21.12, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#906036)

Bug Fixes

Previously, when Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 was installed on some workstations, Anaconda chose the fbdev driver instead of the i915 Intel driver. With this update, the Intel driver is selected, thus fixing the bug.
When building rpms from src rpms, the spec definition and sources produced files, which were not packaged in the last phase of the rpmbuild procedure. Consequently, rpmbuild did not create rpm(s) even if everything else was built successfully, and the following error message was returned:
Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found
This bug has been fixed and all files are now packaged as expected.
Users of xorg-x11-drv-intel are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
