I've had Ubuntu installed for years on other pieces of hardware, and I've just recently purchased a Thinkpad x201 Tablet edition.
Thing is, I've been using the laptop for months now with no problems, the problem came up when i tried to install a game that requires OpenGL3, which should be no problem based on my hardware. Come to find out: Ubuntu has my graphics card listed as an Ironlake-era Mobile card. Upon researching, I found out that I actually have Intel Integrated HD Graphics on my i7 L640 cpu, which is a Sandy Bridge model, which fully supports OpenGL3. I've tried updating the drivers using the Intel Installer, but it hangs on committing a certain part. (I'd try to replicate this, but the whole process can be a pain, I've got to manually kill the process, restart into terminal mode and fix a a few things on the backend before I can get back into my system).
I'm currently upgrading to 15.10 with hopes that there might be some more stability, so that I can hopefully rerun the graphics driver installer without a hitch.
Just wondering if someone else knew how to deal with this problem. Overall, this is just a minor gripe, but it's something that I'd like to see taken care of.
Thanks for your help!
