    Phoronix: Intel Laptop Users Should Avoid Linux 5.19.12 To Avoid Potentially Damaging The Display

    I thought it was my laptop dying or something.

    How the hell did Arch let this kernel get to stable without testing it on Intel hardware? It's the first time Arch broke my install with an update and it seems oddly obvious of a bug.

      I'm typing this right now from an Intel laptop (Dell Latitude 5591) with 5.19.12-200.fc36.x86_64. I haven't noticed any issues

          It definitely isn't affecting every machine. My framework laptop was nearly unusable.

            sad that it got pushed to stable fedora even I reported it here (https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/upda...omment-2733328) and recorded a video here (https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/upda...omment-2733367)

              And I thought it was the nvidia driver interfering in a strange way

              But seriosly such a release shouldn't have been possible

                Haha this is a feature of bleeding edge systems.
                That's why I use Debian. No surprises from "stable" Linux kernel for me.

                  Have been running 5.19.12 (5.19.12-200.fc36.x86_64) for the last few days on a ThinkPad T14s Gen1 (10th Gen Intel CPU) and have not had any issues.

                    I recommend everyone with an Intel GPU to upgrade away from 5.19.12 whether or not you have any visible problems. No point in risking it.
