UPDATED: I have Linux Mint 18.1 running on an HP laptop.
VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display...
I can install the drivers from https://01.org but the update tool fails 'make' (but ./configure runs clean) with error:
make: Leaving directory '/home/Documents/video_driver/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917/src/sna' Making all in uxa make: Entering directory '/home/Documents/video_driver/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917/src/uxa' CC intel_display.lo CC intel_driver.lo intel_driver.c: In function 'redisplay_dirty': intel_driver.c:645:2: error: too many arguments to function 'PixmapSyncDirtyHelper' PixmapSyncDirtyHelper(dirty, &pixregion); ^ In file included from /usr/include/xorg/gc.h:54:0, from /usr/include/xorg/dix.h:51, from /usr/include/xorg/privates.h:151, from /usr/include/xorg/cursor.h:53, from /usr/include/xorg/scrnintstr.h:53, from /usr/include/xorg/xf86str.h:39, from /usr/include/xorg/xf86.h:44, from intel_driver.c:49: /usr/include/xorg/pixmap.h:131:1: note: declared here PixmapSyncDirtyHelper(PixmapDirtyUpdatePtr dirty); ^ Makefile:524: recipe for target 'intel_driver.lo' failed make: *** [intel_driver.lo] Error 1 make: Leaving directory '/home/Documents/video_driver/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917/src/uxa' Makefile:598: recipe for target 'all-recursive' failed make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make: Leaving directory '/home/Documents/video_driver/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917/src' Makefile:468: recipe for target 'all-recursive' failed make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make: Leaving directory '/home/Documents/video_driver/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917' Makefile:399: recipe for target 'all' failed make: *** [all] Error 2
I did find this for ATI (not intel) https://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-driver-ati/2015-July/027750.html It failed. Though I knew it was gong to fail before trying, none of the target files existed. I couldn't find one for Intel specific.
None of the driver software leaves a trace of driver files on my system either (i.e. .ko driver file), to perform a manual install (I know how to use modprobe).
Where can I get the .ko files so that I can do a manual install and skip all the install scripts?
Or and install script that works as a choice #2
