Known issue

#355 which can be fixed by #356

Maybe wait for next version or apply the fix: the issue is annoying (no way to force i965 on X11)

Have you tried that patch? If it works we probably should add it. We don't know when a new release will be made. The previous release was in July and we have about six weeks until we start tagging for 9.1.

Well, their issue #354 tells they might release 2.6.1 soon. Note that the patch is said to work by their reviewer. I propose to wait until January 1st. If nothing has come, I'll put the new version and the patch into the book.

Actually, looking more closely at the patch, it seems to me that there is an error (freeing a NULL pointer). I've reported to their issue #356.

To try upstream issue #355, I need an alternate driver for intel graphics. Problem is the iHD driver is only available on 5th gen and later, and I have only a Haswell (4th gen)... So I'll put the patch and the new version in the book, and ask for testing on the list...
