@jforbes With kernel 5.5.5 lacking 76f9764cc3d5 ("drm/i915: Introduce a vma.kref") it was unusable on Coffeelake as previously indicated. Did this 5.5.6 uptake the Manjaro backport: https://gitlab.manjaro.org/packages/core/linux55/blob/master/0014-drm-i915-introduce-a-vma.kref.patch ?

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.

kernels 5.5.5 and 5.5.6 are unusable on my Notebook with Intel HD Graphics 5300. The screen stays black after waking up

Good.

User Icon rajeeshknambiar commented & provided feedback a month ago

5.5.5 was unusable (no SDDM login screen after boot, though I can get VTE by Alt+Ctrl+F2) on Intel i5-1035G1. 5.4.y kernels were all causing immediate GPU crash when running PyCharm. 5.3.y were working ok-ish (GPU crash occurs, but every 30–60 mins or so).

This 5.5.6 version is at least as good as 5.3.y kernels (meaning GPU crash still occurs, but less frequent).

That's solved here. No errors or warning found.

Thanks :D

Installed the update and rebooted my system, allowed the testsuite to make the heap memory executable and ran the regression tests and both PASS, though "libhugetlbfs" and "paxtest" was skipped. Audio & video playback (vlc, web), ethernet, installed applications, native OpenGL & Wine/Proton games over DXVK works. Additionally LUKS full disc encryption, system shutdown, reboot, hibernation & suspend works. Tested on Fedora 31 (x86_64) with PRIME Z270-A, i5-7600K, 16GB DDR4, RX 580 8GB (with MESA 19.2.8) and 970 EVO M.2.

5.5.x regression: no WiFi on Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1808364 I believe for kernel-5.5.7 there should be at least: Recommends: iwl7260-firmware Then 5.5.6 works for me.
