How do I load modesetting?

I started using EndeavourOS 11 days ago and got a few screen flicking and game related issues which weren’t an issue while I was using Mint before Endeavour. After some hours, I figured out it was xf86-video-intel driver issue.
Here’s an output of inxi -G:

  Device-1: Intel 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics driver: i915
    v: kernel
  Device-2: Sunplus Innovation Laptop_Integrated_Webcam_HD type: USB
    driver: uvcvideo
  Display: x11 server: X.Org v: 21.1.3 driver: X: loaded: intel
    unloaded: modesetting gpu: i915 resolution: 1366x768~60Hz
  OpenGL: renderer: Mesa Intel HD Graphics 4600 (HSW GT2)
    v: 4.6 Mesa 22.1.1

Endeavour tells me that modesetting is present, but unloaded and I was thinking that loading modesetting will fix most of issues I have. Some users suggest to remove xf86-video-intel, I’m afraid that it will break something. Is there any way to load modesetting and keep that driver?

Just remove xf86-video-intel and reboot.


You should be able to remove the Intel driver and reboot and it will load the kernel module.
