Will the M700 be certified for RHEL6/7?

We're currently having a problem with Scientific Linux 6 and the graphics driver not supporting 2D acceleration on dual monitors. All X Windows drag very slowly showing blocks of lines repainting, and a CPU Core goes to 100% with Xorg process. Any help, drivers , etc would be appreciated - the Intel site only has bleeding edge Fedora 25 drivers, which seems misguided for enterprise use.

RHEL 6 went out of Production 1 support on May 10, 2016, so it likely will not get new hardware enablement past what it already has.


Have you tried 7.3 yet? Also note that RHEL 7.4 should have better Skylake support than what is currently present in 7.3. RHEL 7 should continue to receive hardware enablement updates until Q4 2019.
