today I updated per update-manager: xserver-xorg-video-intel Version: 2:2.17.0-1ubuntu4.1 to 4.2 and then the following issues appeared:
- The mouse cursor was flickering when draging a window or scrolling through the main menu
- The x crashed when switching into console mode or logging out (freezed with grey background)
With the 4.1 everything works very nice on my Dell Vostro 3460 with that card:
$ lspci -vv VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Ivy Bridge Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: Dell Device 0562 Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx+ Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx- Latency: 0 Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 43 Region 0: Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M] Region 2: Memory at c0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M] Region 4: I/O ports at 3000 [size=64] Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel driver in use: i915 Kernel modules: i915
I did a fresh install and avoided this mess by:
# apt-mark hold xserver-xorg-video-intel
But it sucked anyways ... I dunno know how to bug report like a boss or if it has already been done? I didn't find anything yet.
So, help please!
