Ok Daniel, I also tested drm-intel-fixes branch (to check if I could
get 1024x768p without flickering)
I followed your instructions:
- First checkout Keith's kernel tree:
- git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/keithp/linux.git
- Then checkout the drm-intel-fixes branch with
- git checkout -t origin/drm-intel-fixes
- Confirm with
- git branch
- that you're indeed on the -fixes branch. Then do whatever your distor
- howto tells you to compile a kernel from sources.
after reboot I see yet an other behavior.
LightDM shows an odd resolution. Not flickering but oddly placed and
definitely not usable.
After login the screen goes black (interestingly, not blue like when I
I logged in with VNC and tried to switch to 1024x768p with xrandr:
xrandr --newmode "1024x768_01" 65.00 1024 1048 1184 1344 768 771 777
806 -hsync -vsync
xrandr --addmode HDMI2 "1024x768_01"
xrandr --output HDMI2 --mode "1024x768_01"
but nothing changes.
Recap: original kernel: two half screens flickering
latest drm-intel-fixes branch: black screen
attached dmesg.output and Xorg.0.log
