Udating video drivers with linux os

Sometimes, a driver update that provides support for a new device might be available from Red Hat or your hardware vendor on a Often, you do not need the new hardware during the installation process.

If you downloaded the version of the Intel Graphics Driver, double-click the file to start the driver installation.

If you downloaded the version, extract the file and then double-click the SETUP. An alternate method is to follow the instructions in the readme text file of the driver for a manual Have-Disk installation.

In most cases, Red Hat Enterprise Linux already includes drivers for the devices that make up your system.

However, if your system contains hardware that has been released very recently, drivers for this hardware might not yet be included.

Conversely, do not perform a driver update during installation unless you are certain that your system requires it.

Although installing an unnecessary driver update will not cause harm, the presence of a driver on a system for which it was not intended can complicate support.

Because all devices of the same type are initialized together, you cannot update drivers for a device if the installation program has loaded drivers for a similar device.

For example, consider a system that has two different network adapters, one of which has a driver update available.

You cannot use a driver update to replace drivers that the installation program has already loaded.

Instead, you must complete the installation with the drivers that the installation program loaded and update to the new drivers after installation, or, if you need the new drivers for the installation process, consider performing an initial RAM disk driver update — refer to Section 6.2.3, “Preparing an Initial RAM Disk Update”.
