Hi all, I have found an installer for Intel graphics, but unfortunatelly, it's only for older versions od Fedora. ( )

Is there any way to install Intel graphics drivers on Fedora 23?

Here is an output of lspci on my machine (Lenovo Edge E550):

[shimon@localhost ~]$ lspci -nn | grep VGA 
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Broadwell-U Integrated Graphics [8086:1616] (rev 09)

It is already installed in your system, I'm pretty sure. You should post the issues you have with the drivers so someone else can help you with that.

If you are already booting to the desktop without problem, you don't have to do anything. Fedora comes with the Intel display drivers already installed. (Yay open source!)

Are you unable to login? Does Fedora boot to a text-only interface?

Thanks for reply. There is no problem with booting or loading the graphic interface. But it seems to me that some (even build-in Fedora) applications are quite blurry. Maybe it's just my feeling. I also had problem with full-screen Youtube HD video streaming, which was not playing fluently (it was playing well on small size). But this problem doesn't appear now - so maybe it was just a coincidence. So I think there is nothing to solve, right now ;)

I have the same graphics hardware and I'm having really bad video tearing issues. Haven't found a proper fix for it yet.

As I already said in the comments to the question, the Intel drivers are already installed.

$ rpm -q xorg-x11-drv-intel
$ xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.99.917-16.20150729.fc23.x86_64

Have you add 'i915.preliminary_hw_support=1' to the grub kernel params? See also '' I had the same problems, and the link has helped me out of trouble.
