You’ll have to adjust your package repository to install some software from the testing channel without updating the whole system.

The instructions below will setup the system to know about packages from the testing channel, but ignore all of them unless expressly told otherwise.

You’ll also have to tell the repository manager what your preferred release channel is.

Your system should now know about the testing repository but not actually use it for anything.

Whether you had no working drivers before or older but working drivers, you should notice performance improvements in everything from watching videos on You Tube to gaming through Steam. Be aware that for every package not from your main repository, you’ll introduce some risk of breaking functionality or the system.

Use it sparingly, or you’ll probably have less problems by migrating entirely away from Debian stable and over to the testing channel.

For a detailled history of my changes please have a look at the Original driver code from Cirrus Logic: https://github.com/Cirrus Logic/rpi-linux Repository with my changes: https://github.com/Hiassof T/rpi-linux Currently maintained tree: cirrus-4.4.y Just clone one of my trees and follow the official RPi kernel compilation instructions.

The Debian GNU/Linux project recently migrated the Intel graphics drivers version 2.99.917 into their testing release channel.

If you’re on the Debian stable release, you’re currently using the more‐than‐a‐year‐old 2.21.15 driver.
