Last update broke i915 driver

please look the video. If I try TTY* the login appear for a very short time and after disappear…
I have to study how to change the resolution by GRUB but… why all these problems after a simple package upgrade?

Looks like you’re on the latest kernel. Same results on the lts?

Same result… I have no answer… The live version works perfectly…

I am going to reinstall…

Leave out the Intel driver and see if your results don’t improve. You’ve got a 7th Gen. Intel. the x86 driver is not needed in Arch and has been known to cause errors for several years. The driver is only necessary of earlier (3rd Gen?) Intel.

I would like to inform again the thread-readers that the live version (booted from USB dongle) had not problem.
I resolved the problem by using Manjaro on this computer.

My old MacMini 5,2 work perfectly with EndevourOS… the big question is which Arch-based distribution use…

I hope this is last time I have to reinstall the OS.

By the way, this computer is my first one running EndeavourOS, and I installed EndeavourOS after a Manjaro catastrophic upgrade…

Thanks to all the team a lot for the support.


Perhaps a solution was to add


For complete information, Manjaro is broken, and the video driver since today is faulty!!!

It could be a hardware failure too…

It is listed as working:

its gen 3 ? so not latest and will need intel driver package and may also mesa-amber

I believe in collaboration between groups. I switched to Majaro, and the problem is resolved.
I will be glad to provide all the requested information to investigate the problem.

I usually perform some hardware list, this is the one of the computer (I have more detailed reports):

CPU: Intel i3-3220 (4) @ 3.300GHz
GPU: Intel HD Graphics

the output from inxi would be interesting and involved packages MJ has in use:
mesa and xf86-video-intel plus kernel version and if it adds kernel options:

so somehow LTS kernel
And is xf86-video-intel installed?
the version of mesa would be also interesting.

And thanks for the info!

Same versions… so only kernel is different :wink: but i do n to know if MJ is patching mesa p.e.
so need to check what MJ is doing different…
and having all this package installed is looking strange to me personally… its like installing all drivers possible?
