moriel5 added a comment to T10194: Intel AX210 WiFi Broken Under Linux 5.15.

I have absolutely no idea how this happened, however after my system failed to show anything with graphics (no crashes, just graceful termination of LightDM and XServer, with no explanation why), and reinstallation of quite a few packages (and reverting manual changes meant to enable Intel triple buffering X11-wide), suddenly my AX210 is working without any issues with Linux 5.15, and even Bluetooth LE is working perfectly.

I had just tested this on my sister's laptop (Celeron N2840, 2GB DDR3L@1333Mhz, 16GB eMMC), and I saw no perceivable real world difference, although all I did to test this was running YouTube videos at 720p, 1080p, 720p60, and 1080p60 via Piped with H.264 as the only enabled codec (only way to watch YouTube videos nowadays at above 360p without heavy chopping, interestingly, 1080p60 was almost viewable this way, despite the CPU supposed to not be able to cope with the strain of streaming something like that at all) and going through the file manager (Nautilus, this is on a Budgie DE).

It appears that linux-firmware is woefully out of date, which coupled with Intel's firmware update cadence shenanigans, could be the reason for the AX210 not working at all on Solus, starting with Linux 5.15.

moriel5 added a comment to T10302: Gnome Calendar Segmentation fault.

Hi guys,
sorry for not having reported such a long time. But, I resumed my investigation today and may have found something. @Jacek said

Could it be that on newer Intel graphics using "Iris" driver (Broadwell 5th-gen and up) it works, but this bug only concerns the old i915 driver? Maybe Mesa update to 22.0.5 fixed it for newer processors but not the older?

I found that very interesting and tried some of the mesa parameters for the userspace driver like

MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=iris gnome-control-center

Surprisingly this gives me a running gnome-control-center and no segfault (no matter if I put "iris" or some random other text there). So I checked the mesa driver folder befor

ls /usr/lib64/dri/
i830_dri.so            kms_swrast_dri.so      r200_dri.so            radeon_dri.so          virtio_gpu_dri.so
i915_dri.so            nouveau_dri.so         r300_dri.so            radeonsi_dri.so        vmwgfx_dri.so
i965_dri.so            nouveau_drv_video.so   r600_dri.so            radeonsi_drv_video.so  
iris_dri.so            nouveau_vieux_dri.so   r600_drv_video.so      swrast_dri.so

and after the libmesa update

ls /usr/lib64/dri/
crocus_dri.so          nouveau_dri.so         r600_dri.so            radeonsi_drv_video.so  vmwgfx_dri.so
iris_dri.so            nouveau_drv_video.so   r600_drv_video.so      swrast_dri.so          
kms_swrast_dri.so      r300_dri.so            radeonsi_dri.so        virtio_gpu_dri.so

Looks like the old i915, i965, ... drivers have been deleted or better replaced by crocus_dri.so. And guess what gives me the segfault again

MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=crocus gnome-control-center

So crocus doesn't work for older Intel integrated GPUs like my HD3000 obviously. But I'm running out of ideas what would be the right fix or if there's any.

@moriel5 : I did the procedure you wrote about:

sudo eopkg check | grep Broken
Checking integrity of pysolfc-cardsets                               Broken

so doesn't seem to be the issue

Hmm... It would certainly seem like that.

as for gnome-calendar not being dark, you need to set it in gnome-control-center (as opposed to budgie-control-center). the calendar still won't match the system dark theme but at least it will be dark ;-) as I understand it, it has something to do with the fact that gnome 42 completely blocked user themes.

I'm not a dark theme user, however I use the Arc theme that used to be the default on Linux, and yes, it is due to GNOME devs trying to pull an Apple (you the user do not get to choose what is enjoyable to you, only we, the devs, get to choose for you).

@moriel5 If you want to see something like a Budgie Calendar, you would need to report it at Budgie's bugtracker, not here.

True, I had simply pointed this out.

Also, they did run sudo eopkg check already, this problem is not due to broken packages. But it really is weird that on your Intel machine it is working.
Could it be that on newer Intel graphics using "Iris" driver (Broadwell 5th-gen and up) it works, but this bug only concerns the old i915 driver? Maybe Mesa update to 22.0.5 fixed it for newer processors but not the older? If that is true, then switching to "Crocus" driver on older processors would fix it, as it uses newer driver code.

That is certainly possible, and would be backed up by the fact that it runs without any issues on my sister's BayTrail-laptop, which relies on Crocus.

Random locations

Thanks, will it be feasible to add an option to reorganize the icons, without allowing them to be placed wherever?

It's not a perfect calculation, it's an estimate. I'm using static values for the items since getting the calculated heights and widths of items added (which is something I did at the beginning) introduced inconsistencies due to how delayed Gtk can be at allocating and the allocation being inconsistent itself.

Ah, then I guess that this will take time, and is low priority.
In any case, it could be argued that this is much better in some ways than the previous implementation (though I do feel it to be a bit lacking, since I make heavy usage of the desktop).

No it isn't. The icon heights are different and your second column first item has a label that wraps onto the second line, and the label height is variable depending on if its one or two lines. The icons center themselves in whatever internal container GtkImage uses for it.

Thanks for the explanation. In my opinion, it is still not as it should, however understand that this is due to GTK limitations.
Any plans for icon size standardization? That may help out.

There are multiple reports of crashes and SIGABRT for gthumb. See their issue tracker.

Update: I am now seeing these issues also on 5.7.10, though a lot less often than on 5.6.19.

We don't have the 5.7 kernel as our current kernel, so I have no idea what you're talking about. That was reverted clear back in July. Your issue is not related. The first issue by @endumiuz is a CPU soft lock, there isn't really any information on it, we'd need to see if it's resolved with newer kernels when we finally upgrade to that (blocked by NVMe issues). The second issue presented by @endumiuz is, at first glance, related to a bug in Dash to Dock extension for GNOME Shell, so I would suggest they ensure they're using the default settings since they shouldn't be getting any sort if "infinite recursion" issues.

For whatever reason, I can set my laptop monitor's refresh rate to 120Hz when set below the native resolution, even though it's EDID does not list 120Hz as an option.
Could this perhaps be related?

I can confirm that this is also happening to me, with a slight variation.
For me, it is only the graphics and keyboard input actions that freeze (I can toggle Num/Caps lock), on both my desktop and my laptop (recently upgraded with a new Barracuda Pro).
Additionally, the screen keeps flickering on Intel graphics.

@juliocormor With pleasure. I hope your issue will get resolved, though.

I'm home and trying to test your solution. I'm not sure what do you mean with "refresh XRandr's information via radeon-profile". I have radeon-profile installed but i can't find any options to do that?
Also, I think on the distros the second screen worked were using the modesetting driver for the iGPU, while in Solus the system it's using Intel driver. I have read about how to change it but I'm not sure how. If someone helps me change drivers I think the issue is solved.

@Darius I'm not ruling out the drivers being out of date, that happens all too often with new AMD hardware, however I said that the ISO may be corrupt, which means that no matter how many times you reflash it, you will have problems, and the only recourse is to delete it, and download it again (that was what I had to do in my case).

Rather late, however I had a similar issue on my desktop (not at home for the time being, and will need to repair the hard drive when I return, so no way to test anything), however by simply refreshing XRandr's information (via radeon-profile), my TV (old, low-end, with bloated capacitors, 42" 1080p non-smart TV that I got from a friend that was throwing it out after replacing it with a 4K smart TV) was instantly picked up, though I had to due this each time I connected or disconnected it to my Radeon HD6950.

I remember when I had issues installing Solus in the past, and I forget who suggested this to me (probably via IRC, since I cannot find this on the Phabricator) (I think it was either Ikey, Josh, or Drake), however perhaps your installation media got corrupted (that's what happened to me)?

This issue can be closed for now, since the current drivers lack support for UVP (more reverse engineering will need to be done with Microsoft's proprietary protocols).

I seem to have gotten myself into this predicament now, however after attempting to fix it via the means outlined in the Solus Help Center (except for updating the system, as it was already mostly up-to-date (just plasma-desktop-branding not being in the index, and I do not have that installed in any case), plus I was unable to get networking to work inside the chroot), I had managed to fix the Systemd errors, however not the fact that the system is unable to switch-root.

@aquasp Thanks, it appears I also had that installed.
Back when I had initially set up Solus, I installed this to provide additional codec coverage, however looking at the Arch Wiki page, it is pretty much irrelevant unless you are using Nouveau on NVidia's 900-series or newer cards, and even then, it only appears to support decoding (plus, no support by either Firefox or Chromium).
Otherwise, everything it supports seems to be supported by VA-API and/or NVidia's proprietary driver.

Extremely late update, since I had forgotten all about it, and I'm usually not at home.
My fake "7570" has apparently gotten damaged at the same time as my DH55HC motherboard (thankfully it was just the RTC chip (on the DH55HC), and I got a new one of the same model, however I still need to find someone that will be able to help me replace it).
It still works, but not very well, with VGA having limited resolutions (up to something like 1366x768p), and ignoring the actual monitor's settings, and DVI getting a black screen, no idea about HDMI.
