The intel graphics driver shipped in 2009.1 was the 2.7.0 version which has turned out to be somewhat unstable on some systems . This updates the package to the 2.7.1 version recently released by intel and fixes several crashers. The number of changes is quite small, so hopefully minimises any chances of unexpected regressions. Here follows the advisory text from the upstream Intel maintainers: <quote> This is a maintenance release on the 2.7 branch. Compared to 2.7.0 it consists only of a few carefully hand-picked fixes for bugs, . We encourage all users of 2.7.0 to upgrade to 2.7.1. We have verified that several of the reported bugs of GPU crashes, , are fixed with the commit by Keith Packard in 2.7.1 to correct the computation of the batch space required. If you have previously reported a GPU-crash bug in bugs.freedesktop.org, please test with 2.7.1 and report your findings in the bug. If the crash is fixed, please celebrate with us! If the crash persists, please attach the output of intel_gpu_dump available here </quote> Please note that the intel_gpu_dump utility refered to above is now available for 2009.1 via contrib/updates in the intel-gpu-tools pacakge.
