[Unstable Update] 2021-05-28 - Kernels, Perl, Cinnamon 5.0, Haskell, Tesseract, Cutefish

Wow. That thread of unstable branch is open and newest for almost 3 months. The stable branch got new topics more frequently :slight_smile:

Unstable branch get updates every day…

for a branch that gets updates everyday, it is also the quietest, and the least fuzziest :heart_eyes:

For a week or so there’s a strange issue happening again and again: sometimes all graphical interface (except mouse cursor) becomes very slow-mo, like 2 FPS or so, only when compositing enabled, disabling the latter “resolves” that. It always begins when I set “Press Super to activate Application Launcher” in Latte settings, but sometimes it starts when a disabled compositing gets enabled again (say, after a fullscreen game is closed).
I tried to search logs for any hint what could be wrong but I had no luck.

This is just a quick draft. I still have no idea whether it has something to do with driver (i915/nvidia/nouveau) or recent Xorg updates.

But still here’s a new post you were waiting for guys :slight_smile:
Unstable is full of hidden “gems”.

Lol I found a culprit. And it is really hilarious and unexpectable.
If any of you guys have a dual monitor setup, set your screens like this, then disable compositing and enable it again:
Screenshot_20210824_014254

To make this slow-mo you’re likely experiencing now disappear just press Ctrl+Shift+F12 to quickly disable compositing and align your screens back.

Interestingly, a bug report already exists:

Every time I install Linux514 kernel it messes up the older kernels and I have to reinstall the older kernels.
Also Jack server doesnt start with 5.14 Kernel and if I try to start it manually it freezes the PC.

xorg-server update cause screen tearing on Intel machine with Xfce DE.

more here

CPU: Intel i5-4200M (4) @ 3.100GHz
GPU: Intel 4th Gen Core Processor
GPU Driver: video-linux
Kernel: 5.10

xorg-server         1.20.13-2 -> 1.20.13-3
xorg-server-common  1.20.13-2 -> 1.20.13-3

I’ve downgraded packages and waiting for next update :slight_smile:

:point_up: @philm May have something to do with the Intel patch.

dont know whether it is related, but chrome video acceleration is non-functional of late. video acceleration on media players are functioning well.

Completely reinstalling chrome and its config files worked for me. Don’t know why.

Firefox’s seems to work fine, but I have issues with Lagrange browser, Atom text editor, NewsFlash, Mousepad, Foliate (with infinity scrolling on), Pamac. Basically everywhere or almost everywhere where there is a lot of text to scroll.

completely reinstalling with config files worked, but only on first invocation of chrome. after closing chrome and reinvoking, it continues without video acceleration

so, somewhat auto-detects some staff and changes it’s work mode which leads to video accel. to switch off. the question is to unveil that “somewhat”, “staff” and work modes.

may be to:

  1. install again,
  2. get a copy of all config settings,
  3. execute twice,
  4. close the app and compare current config with initial directly after install.
    ?

@ApoorvPotnis

so after going in circles here is the solution. like i said vid. accel. works only the first time you invoke chrome after clearing the config. every subsequent invocation results in vid. accel. being disabled. then after comparing GPU settings in chrome:///gpu page, i found that ozone platform is loaded only successive chrome invokes. disabling ozone (via flag), gets video acceleration back.

i’m on X11 and still cant makeout whether ozone is meant to help X11 or xwayland users. with G deciding that ozone to be enabled by default, there can be a performance penalty if it is disabled. however it seems it is the ony way to get v. acceleration back.

xorg-server and xorg-server-common update from 1.20.13-2 to 1.20.13-3 the other day left me with the inability to use the external monitor on my Dell laptop. No matter what settings changes I made, all I can see on the external monitor was a screen with the xfce mouse. The laptop monitor worked fine. Reverting back to 1.20.13-2 fixed the issue. I can reinstall and post logs, if needed. I am not sure which logs, though.

Update regarding issue with xorg-server and xorg-server-common: I grabbed the PKGBUILD from gitlab and built without the Debian patches and all works fine.

I was met with a black screen after login (xfce and plasma), had to go to tty and use startx. I was using kernel 5.13.13, so I tried to change to 5.10.61 and it worked. I’m not sure when it started but I’m not seeing that grub interface before login (which would make easy the job to change kernels)

2 posts were split to a new topic: Duplicate of #IgnorePkg line in the /etc/pacman.conf

Since 5.14 RC1 (and still with the stable version) I have the problem that the screen brightness does not seem to work and everything is darker. When I boot into any other kernel everything is fine.
