I am running OS Fedora 30 Thirty Kernel: x86_64 Linux 5.0.16-300.fc30.x86_64
CPU: Intel Core i7-8559U @ 8x 4.5GHz [-263.2°C]
Graphics: Device-1: Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 driver: i915 v: kernel bus ID: 00:0.0 chip ID:
Display: x11 server: Fedora Project X.org 1.20.4 driver: intel resolution: 3840x2160~60Hz
OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics (Coffeelake 3x8 GT3) v: 4.5 Mesa 19.0.4 compat-v: 3.0
direct render: Yes
As per Intel advisory drivers above version 5.0 should be installed.
Intel's innovation in cloud computing, data center, Internet of Things, and PC solutions is powering the smart and connected digital world we live in.
How to achieve this?

I’m not an expert.
But it is stated that: “i915 Graphics for Linux before version 5.0 may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable escalation of privilege via local access” and “Intel recommends that users of Intel® i915 Graphics for Linux update to version 5.0 or later”.
You have 5.0.16, so you should be fine.

Yes, I know I am running kernel version 5.0.16-300.fc30.x86_64.
But is the kernel version equal to the Intel graphics driver version? Shouldn’t we differentiate this? I don’t know.
Looking for what is installed as graphic driver with tool “inxi -xxx -G” I only get special info
Device-1: Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 driver: i915 v: kernel …
“v: kernel” does this mean graphic driver version accords to kernel version?
Please take a look at the bug that
@alciregi linked to. That should answer your question.

It exists a nice, little app to view all details about GPU called GPU-Viewer on
There in driver version is 18.3.6 for IGP. Kernel version may not correspond to driver version/numbering.
