    It looks like a launchpad bug (it already happened in the past), hopefully it will be fixed in the next days.
    They finally fixed it, new packages uploaded.

    Hello there, I don't know if here is a the right place for a bug report but since I couldn't find anywhere else to report bug (including launchpad) I try it here.
    I have Ubuntu 20.04 with AMD GPU (old one) and I'm using oibaf drivers.

    In last update all text were shown incomplete, it shows first 4 characters and then blank until some other characters which I didn't count but there is a pattern.

    here is my PC setup:


    ```
    uname -r
    5.8.0-48-generic
    ```


    ```
    lspci | grep VGA
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Cedar [Radeon HD 5000/6000/7350/8350 Series]
    ```

    ```
    inxi -G
    Graphics:
    Device-1: AMD Cedar [Radeon HD 5000/6000/7350/8350 Series] driver: radeon
    v: kernel
    Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.9 driver: radeon resolution: 1366x768~60Hz
    OpenGL: renderer: AMD CEDAR (DRM 2.50.0 / 5.8.0-48-generic LLVM 12.0.0)
    v: 3.3 Mesa 21.1.0-devel (git-5c8a7fa 2021-03-31 focal-oibaf-ppa)

    ```

    recently other people also reported same problem in askubuntu, I drop link to my question and others, hope it help you investigating problem:

    1. askubuntu.com/questions/1328937/ubuntu-20-04-only-shows-half-text
    2. askubuntu.com/questions/1329312/xubuntu-20-04-incomplete-words
    3. askubuntu.com/questions/1328152/ubuntu-20-04-text-splitting-and-screen-flickering/
    4. askubuntu.com/questions/1329059/on-the-desktop-xfce-displays-text-incorrectly


    I'm sorry if this bug has already been reported somewhere else because I couldn't find it.

    There have been reports of this bug causing performance issues in some games.
    Hrmm, I thought this was already backported into 5.11.

    I'm not sure if it is worth upgrading just yet as the kids use this computer as well. I was wondering where the disconnect might be between mesa and the kernel 5.11.x that would have such an impact. FWIW I also tried the mainline 5.11.10-051110 kernel build in case I had gotten something really wrong in my kernel config.
