Install Intel Graphics Update Tool 2.0.3 for Ubuntu 16.10

     Intel Graphics Update Tool 2.0.3 of the update tool is targeted specifically at both Ubuntu* 16.10 and Fedora* 24. Earlier revisions for those Linux distributions are now deprecated and are no longer being supported by the update tool.


      The Intel® Graphics Update Tool for Linux* OS (formerly known as the Intel® Graphics Installer for Linux*) was renamed starting from version 2.0.2, in order to more accurately reflect the purpose of the tool. Linux distributions already include by default an Intel® graphics driver, without needing any extra installation. This tool aims to make the latest Intel® Graphics Stack available before it gets officially released by Linux* OS vendors. Specifically, it benefits those Linux* users of both Ubuntu* and Fedora* distributions who want to update their graphics subsystems for Intel® platforms.

      Version 2.0.3 of the update tool is targeted specifically at both Ubuntu* 16.10 and Fedora* 24. Earlier revisions for those Linux distributions are now deprecated and are no longer being supported by the update tool. Please upgrade to a more recent version of your OS distribution if you want to take advantage of this release.
