mithrial gravatar image has a repository for the drivers for a Intel Graphics Card.

In order to use the drivers working for F19 you have to install a plugin for yum called yum-plugin-priorities. You can install it with

$ yum install yum-plugin-priorities -y

You enable the repository for the drivers by adding a file called intellinuxgraphics.repo into the folder /etc/yum.repos.d/ with the following content:

name=Intel Linux Graphics

Note that the repository uses F19 as standard. One when they release a version for F20 you have to manually change the value either from .../19/ either to .../20/ or ../$releasever/. The last line indicates that this repository has the highest priority over the other repositories.

Now you can use their drivers by installing the according packages. If it tells you that other packages are newer than the ones you want to install you can do a

$ yum distro-sync

And downgrade the packages from the

The installer has hardcoded support for F19. It raises an error of "unsupported version" if you try to install with F20. The installer only adds a repository and installs some packages from it. You can add the repo manually. How is in my answer above.

Intel has not released Fedora 20 I.G. support. Some Intel video drivers could require updated Intel release.


Check Intel Fedora support:

I installed the Intel Driver Update Utility for Linux systems. I think when the Fedora 20 driver is released, the utility will download and install it 8)

Terminal use:

wget URL of file

sudo yum install EXAMPLE:intel-linux-graphics-installer-1.0.2-10.1.i686.rpm

What video driver? My laptop has onboard Intel graphics and Fedora Just Works, including the 3D special effects in Compiz. Unless the graphics chip/card you're using is either bleeding edge or very old, the Linux drivers will be in the kernel, with two exceptions: nVidia and ATI. Are you asking because there's a graphics issue with your mother's computer, or are you just trying to help her have the best Linux experience she can? (If it's the latter, it's a laudable ambition.) Please let us know, in a comment to this answer, what graphics issues she's having, so that we can give you better advice.

I have a Intel i7-3612QM with a Intel Graphics Card HD 4000 and I must install the drivers from Otherwise the notebook cannot go to sleep and hangs everytime either on sleeping or waking.

How might we ask Intel to release these tools for Fedora 23?
