We are trying to get proper graphic support for Intel HD 4000 Ivy Bridge on SLED 11 SP2.

More or less we get OK support with our updated default installation, however we can't get dual-screen mode working properly with 2 x 1920x1080 screens (max resolution on the second monitor is 1680x1050 connected through HDMI) and performance for more demanding graphic is relatively poor.

I can post more accurate performance test and details about hardware specifications and package versions tomorrow.

However I would like to know, if there should be any HD 4000 solution ready or planned for SLED 11 SP2.
I looks like I would fit in here: http://drivers.suse.com/index.php?ve...=%25graphic%25

As far as I can read in Intels documentation and elsewhere kernel 3.0 should be sufficient (we are on 3.0.51-0.7.9-default), but I am not sure?
I looks like an upgrade to Mesa version 8 (current 7.11.2-0.7.3) and xorg-x11-server to version 7.6 (current 7.4-27.68.1) is necessary, but how can this be done in a stable way on SLED 11 SP2?

I hope someone can lead us in the right direction on how we can get Intel HD 4000 Ivy Bridge working properly on SLED 11 SP2.

Please let me know if I should post any further information about our setup.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
Kevin Peter Gade
