Using Intel® Technology with Linux* Kernel Module
The white paper describes porting and patching methods for enabling Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers kernel module support into custom distributions and Linux* kernels for high-performance, integrated graphics.
The Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers kernel module is the Linux kernel component responsible for allowing the X-window system... driver access to the Intel graphics device. Its role is critical in enabling everything from simple 2D graphics and windowing subsystems to full-featured OpenGL*-based 3D applications.
