So I saw your edit, and I attempted to install that, and I've got some unmet dependencies. I'm going to attempt to fix them.

Code: Select all
$ sudo apt-get install linux-image-amd64
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 : Depends: initramfs-tools (>= 0.99~) but it is not going to be installed or
                                      linux-initramfs-tool
                             Recommends: firmware-linux-free (>= 3~) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


Edit: Resolved in synaptic, and I ran the install for linux-image-amd64. Now how should I proceed? Thanks for being helpful and quick with your responses! I'd love if we could get this intel driver working.

No need to thank me -- I just nearly wrecked your system!

Use synaptic and search for the highest 3.16 kernel version (with ".bpo" in the name) and install it using synaptic -- this will create a GRUB menu entry for the new kernel when you reboot.

I'm posting this from an i5-4330M & HD4600 so I know this will work :)

So, I just want to be 100% sure about this, sorry about being overly cautious. I've just never really worked with kernels before. So, this is the proper package I should install, yes?

linux-image-3.16.0-0.bpo.4-amd64
Linux 3.16 for 64-bit PCs


Edit: I figured it'd give me the warning, so I went ahead and did it. So I should boot into that kernel now, and then do what? Would it already be set up?

Yes that's the one.

You are right to be cautious.

I have also a laptop T440P with Intel HD Graphics 4600.

How can i install newer driver on Debian Wheezy - the Intel Graphics Stack Installer is available for Ubuntu 14.04 onwards ...
and adding Jessie-Backports is not an option as it breaks Wheezy packages... i would like to run Wheezy with Gnome 3, thanks
