Fedora 23 as per previous notes.

Then, either update xorg-x11-drv-intel to 2016 drop by cannibalizing F24 development, or install via Intel Graphics Installer for Linux. See Intel Open Source site, ie

Some useful background information from the Fedora Project on How to Debug Xorg Problems.

To probe the current graphics situation, run

grep " (--) " /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Other useful queries

grep " (II) " /var/log/Xorg.0.log;
grep " (II) " /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep connected;
grep " (II) " /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep drm;
grep " (II) " /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EDID;


On the NUC, the above gives the following output

[bkoz@otis log]$ grep " (II) " /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EDID;
[    17.236] (II) VESA(0): EDID Version: 1.3

F23 1 x HDMI 1080p vesa OK
F23 1 x Mini DisplayPort 1080p vesa visible but clipped


Future Attempts

Hand-rolled xorg.conf files. See How to create xorg.conf.

Windows 10 is supported.

Can MacOS + mini drive 4 x displays?
