A question on what I should be looking at…
I have a framework laptop running EOS (been running EOS for about 3 months-ish).
This morning, I started up the laptop. It’s HDMI plugged into an external 24" 1920x1080 Dell monitor.
It worked normally. the next step is where I fudged up
I ran an update, not paying attention to what was being updated because there was a lot (the laptop had been shut down for about 4 days and not been updated for several days before that).
the external monitor started flickering (not on/off, more of a “trying to find the right resolution” type of flickering) but it was still at the correct 1920x1080 resolution.
I rebooted. (there were several reboots, monitor swaps, and cables swaps in this step because the flickering was giving me a headache)
After 10 or so reboots, the flickering stopped but the resolution change (less desktop space, bigger everything else)
The resolution changed to something smaller but the system still lists it as 1920x1080.
The current problem is the resolution is not displaying what is listed by the system.
I ran inxi and this is what pops up.
$ inxi -Ga Graphics: Device-1: Intel TigerLake-LP GT2 [Iris Xe Graphics] driver: i915 v: kernel bus-ID: 00:02.0 chip-ID: 8086:9a49 class-ID: 0300 Device-2: Realtek Laptop Camera type: USB driver: uvcvideo bus-ID: 3-7:4 chip-ID: 0bda:5634 class-ID: 0e02 serial: 200901010001 Display: x11 server: X.Org 18.104.22.168 compositor: kwin_x11 driver: loaded: intel unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,vesa display-ID: :0 screens: 1 Screen-1: 0 s-res: 1920x1080 s-dpi: 202 s-size: 242x136mm (9.5x5.4") s-diag: 278mm (10.9") Monitor-1: DP1 res: 1920x1080 dpi: 92 size: 530x300mm (20.9x11.8") diag: 609mm (24") Message: Unable to show advanced data.

I ran xrandr and this is what shows up:

What am I missing? The configuration looks correct for my untrained eyes but the screen resolution is REALLY not correct.
I looked at the kernel thinking maybe there was a kernel update that fubar’d the resolution but it is the same version that was running last week with no issues. Currently running 5.14.16-arch1-1
Anyone have a sweet nugget of “you’re an idiot, try this” commands?
