Seems ok. Works on baremetal (non UEFI) AMD Ryzen5 3600, Mainboard MSI B450M Mortar Max with prop. nvidia driver from rpmfusion.org (GTX980 card), VirtualBox 6.1.4 from Oracle and Gnome-Desktop. Regression test passed (paxtest, selinux-dac-controls and libhugetlbfs skipped)

But i also (as @stklcode mentioned for 5.5.5) running into nv_drm_atomic_helper_disable_all warnings[1][2] during boot. But this does not seem to have any real impact on the system in usage.

5.5.7 got a lot of i915 patches. Dell Precision 5540 doesn't seem to be locking up anymore (6 hours and counting). Prior kernels locked-up within 10 min of boot and 1 min of starting PyCharm.

works for me: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU & laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 (the desktop ran the performance test in under 10 minutes, but the laptop took about 110 minutes -- more than 10 times longer!) - all using the Mate Desktop Environment

Works well on Lenovo T460p, no regressions spotted, still great performance overall as with other 5.5.x kernels.

It's been ~24hrs and all drm/i915 issues I've had have disappeared, not a single GPU hang with standard workload pattern, i.e. this is the best release in half a year at least.

Within an hour of me posting the previous comment I got drm/i915 #1179 again :) But I guess the rate at which it triggers is an improvement.

User Icon decathorpe commented & provided feedback 7 months ago

Seems to work fine so far. Default and performance regression tests also passed on both my systems:

  • AMD ryzen 1700X + NVidia GTX 1070 w/ negativo17 drivers (440.64)
  • dell XPS 13 9370 (2018)
