Thread: 42.3 video corrupt

  1. #1

    Default 42.3 video corrupt

    I've been running openSuse for years and it's always been stable, but I recently upgraded from 42.2 to 42.3 and now I regularly get corrupt video.

    Sometimes it will appear on the login screen and sometimes on the desktop. Random color bars and broken GUI elements and sometimes it just hangs.

    I'm using KDE. Gnome is not an option.

    The machine is a legacy system: C2Duo/Intel
    GMA 4500
    Graphics. It's mostly used as a media server, local web host and security monitor, so the hardware is adequate for the work that it does.

    Can anybody help me troubleshoot and isolate the problem?

    How did you perform the upgrade?
    Any repos other than the distro repos involved?
    Did you try removing ~/.local/share/kscreen, whilst not being logged in?
    What are the Compositor settings?

    I did an in place upgrade using a copy of 42.3 on a USB drive.

    There are quite a few other repos: VLC, packman, mariadb. Are there some that I should be especially concerned with?

    I have not tried removing kscreen, I will do so now.

    How do I find the Compositor settings?

    And, re your repos: Why a 3rd party repo for mariadb?
    Why the home: repo?

    Default AW: 42.3 video corrupt

    And 2 times Videolan Repo?

    Packman and Videolan at same time is not recommended.

    I'll remove the VLC repo and see what happens.

    Why the home: repo?
    The version of mariaDB in the openSuse repo is older and missing features that I need.
    Not sure about the home repo. Don't know where it came from, but I can remove it also.

    Try to uninstall drm-kmp-default. This package is new in 42.3 and contains updated kernel graphics drivers from kernel 4.9, that may cause problems with some (mainly older) intel chips in particular.
    Without that package, there should be no difference to 42.2 in reards to graphics really.

    MariaDB or VLC are hardly relevant here...
