Fixes #1310258, everything works fine on an HP Elitebook 755 G2

BZ#1310258 [abrt] WARNING: CPU: 2 PID: 1 at drivers/iommu/amd_iommu_init.c:2301 amd_iommu_pc_get_set_reg_val+0xa8/0xe0()

Tested x86_64 on Asus Aspire V Nitro

Boots with no issues seen.

Both Intel (skylake i915) and nvidia (proprietary) GPUs work along with wifi and bluetooth (with the proprietary firmware) and sound.

Personal LAMP and mail server running GNOME. All OK.

This is a big improvement on the current F23 kernel on Thinkpad P70 machines (Intel HD Graphics 530 + Nvidia M600M). However, there is a problem coming out of sleep when only the Nvidia GPU is in use ("Discrete Graphics" in the BIOS). In that case, the screen stays black until X11 is restarted.

I tested this kernel with (https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~airlied/linux/commit/?h=drm-fixes&id=95664e66fad964c3dd7945d6edfb1d0931844664) and that helped, a lot, but didn't solve the problem entirely. With that patch, after sleep, the screen stays dark but pressing ctrl + alt + f3 -> f1 (a few times) eventually recovers the screen. This wasn't possible before the patch.

I don't this it relates, but when first booting (when the tux icons show how many cores there are after grub exits), there is still an unprinted bar along the bottom of the screen. Once the resolution changed though (while still displaying the boot text), the bar goes away and the screen renders fine.

The graphical login screen runs in to an error and shows a grey screen with an "oops" message and a "Log Out" button on my virtual machine (Parallels Desktop 11.1.3). Had to boot in to 4.3.5 to be able to use graphical login.

On another machine (ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501), the login screen appears but behaves strangely when logged in to a Gnome Wayland session. Terminal windows do not show a prompt. If a standard Gnome session is used, terminal windows work normally.

Update on the VM problem I posted above (2016-02-26 19:33:53.292635): I found a problem with the VM guest kernel modules, and reinstalled those under 4.4.2. Graphical login screen does work now, but "Gnome on Wayland" sessions do not.

User Icon vvs9 commented & provided feedback 3 years ago

I know nothing about Parallels but Wayland doesn't work on e.g. VirtualBox. This is a known problem.
