GPU Driver conflicts


Following the OneAPI Installation guide from:

1. I confirmed that my hardware devices are supported client GPUs
david@linux-desktop:~$ lspci -nn |grep -Ei 'VGA|DISPLAY'
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:a780] (rev 04)
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:56a0] (rev 08)
(a780 signifies Intel UHD Graphics Xe Raptor Lake-S and 56a0 signifies Intel Arc A770 Graphics XeHPG Alchemist)
2. Before you begin (installing OneAPI Base Package) - prerequisites
a) Install GPU drivers - took me to:

I followed instructions for Customized Display Stack with Ubuntu 22.04 LTS HWE at 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 2.1.4.
As I assumed I would need GPU Debugging, I also followed section to install the Out-Of-Tree Driver.

    sudo apt update && sudo apt install -y --install-suggests linux-generic-hwe-22.04

The kernel actually installed was 6.5.0-18-generic, which subsequently rose to 6.5.0-21-generic.

The first 5 steps seemed to execute but on step 6:
    sudo apt install -y \
    intel-i915-dkms intel-platform-vsec-dkms \
    intel-platform-cse-dkms intel-fw-gpu

I got the output:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies.
    Intel-i915-dkms : Conflicts: intel-platform-cse-dkms
                                     Conflicts: intel-platform-vsec-dkms
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Did I do something wrong? Or is there something else I should have done first?

As far as I can see, I followed the installation instructions exactly.

1. intel-i915-dkms already provides intel-platform-cse-dkms and intel-platform-vsec-dkms. Please replace Step 6 with `sudo apt install -y intel-i915-dkms intel-fw-gpu`

2. I have made a note to have our documentation teams clarify instructions in As you pointed out, linux-generic-hwe-22.04 now uses a more recent linux kernel version. However, the instructions assume the package still uses the 5.19 kernel.

Kindly let me know if 1 fixes the issue.
