I have an Intel UHD 620 GPU, whose drivers, on 18.04 Bionic, put me in a conflicting position:
- if I use the default (either HWE or not) Xorg video drivers (
xserver-xorg-video-all, everything works fine, but the videos suffer from tearing;
- if I make Xorg use the
xserver-xorg-video-intel(removing the other
xserver-xorg-video-*packages), I can fix the tearing by setting
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf, but the system is unstable (I assume due to improper support in the driver version).
On 19.04 Disco, which ships an updated version of
2:2.99.917+git20171229-1), I can get both stability and TearFree, however, there is no way to install the package in 18.04 Bionic (ultimately due to libc).
Is there any way to get the Intel updated drivers on 18.04 (package, compiling, any way)? Alternatively, is there any way to fix the tearing without using the Intel version of the driver?
