Kernel 5.5 issues with Intel graphics

Install the LTS kernel as a precaution until 5.5 is fixed:

sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Remarkable thing is that I had these problems with the 5.4 kernel too.
Therefore I went back to 4.19 and this solved my issue.

Now 4.19 turned into 5.4 with an update but the problem didn’t come back. :thinking:

There was a wifi problem (AC-3168) with my Asrock deskmini Ryzen 2200G on kernel 5.5.1. Kernel 5.5.2 didn’t fix it until 5.5.2-arch1. I’m on 5.5.3-arch1-1 and all is well. All was fine on my my linux-lts 4.9.101 and is fine on Linux-lts 5.4.19.

At no time did my other computer, an Intel NUC5CYPH, have any issues at all with wifi or graphics.
