Screen tearing Intel i915 Kernel 5.9 and 5.10

using kernel 5.9 or 5.10 makes the display of my Acer ES15 unreadable.

   inxi -G
  Device-1: Intel HD Graphics 620 driver: i915 v: kernel 
  Device-2: Chicony VGA Webcam type: USB driver: uvcvideo 
  Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.10 driver: intel unloaded: modesetting 
  resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz 
  OpenGL: renderer: Mesa Intel HD Graphics 620 (KBL GT2) v: 4.6 Mesa 20.3.1 

with Kernel 5.4 or 5.8 it works norml:

Is there any solution for this problem?

Wow, that looks ugly :slight_smile: It’s not screen tearing though.

Anyways, you could try it with the modesetting rather then the intel driver.
Just remove xf86-video-intel package.

Removing xf86-video-intel caused a blackscreen. Had to chroot into my system to repair it.

Woops. Was switching to tty not even working?

Maybe you have a xorg config file left like:


Which would need to be removed also (or better rename to .bak)

Thanks a lot @moson !
Now it works :smiley:
