I recently bought a Dell XPS 13 9310 with Intel i7-1165G7 CPU and Intel Xe Graphics. It was running perfectly fine before with kernels previous to 5.10.* (I tried 5.6, 5.8, 5.9). However with 5.10.* and 5.11.*, I’m experiencing weird graphics glitches. It mostly shows in the form of short delays while typing or moving the cursor, but can also get more noticeable like objects showing twice while scrolling. In general, it makes the whole system feel unresponsive. It appears both on Wayland and X11 (GDM, Gnome).
I tried setting i915.mitigations=off, but it didn’t change anything. I’m running EndeavourOS with all current updates installed.
The weird thing is that this problem only occurs when I’m on my internal display, any external monitor works. This issue is becoming really frustrating, so maybe someone of you can help to eliminate it
It is my first post on a Linux forum, so I apologize if there are important pieces of information missing. I’m happy to post logs and more system information.
Sure, sorry. I’ve installed the zen kernel (was yay -S linux-zen linux-zen-headers the correct way?)
uname -r returned:
Unfortunately, it didn’t improve the situation. It’s almost like the internal display has hick-ups. Is there maybe an easy way to revert back to kernel 5.9.* in EndeavourOS to temporarily solve the issue?
