Kernel 4.13.1 breaks Intel mobile Graphics

Axel Braun-2
Did an update on an old ASUS eeePC to the above TW. With Kernel 4.13.1, 2/3 of
the screen is black.
Switching back to Kernel 4.12.11 fixes the problem.
Graphics chip is a Intel mobile GM945 GM
https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1058870
Anyone else sees this problem?

Thanks
Axel

Haven’t used my eeePC in a very long time and updating it would take all day
with its glacially slow storage…

Is xf86-video-intel installed? If so, uninstall that (so it uses the far less
buggy modesetting DDX instead).

Once started, it runs on its own...but it takes time, indeed

So I guess it needs an additional boot parameter then? Nomodeset?

Cheers

No. Nomodeset is a troubleshooting parameter that prevents all drivers for
non-ancient gfxchips from being used, slowing Xorg to a crawl, if it starts at all.

What Martin write means you should allow Xorg use the integrated modeset driver
by not having xf86-video-intel installed. It's easier and simpler than
configuring manually via /etc/X11/xorg.conf* to not use an installed
xf86-video-intel driver. If it doesn't help, reinstall it.

The switch to the integrated modest driver does not work. It still asks for xf86-video-intel.

Interesting in this context: same issue as described in the bug is visible in runlevel 3 as well. So you can't even use the command prompt with kernel 4.13.1

Best,
Axel

Do you have an xorg.conf that refers to the intel driver?

You probably need to check and redo the initrd after removing the modules?

No, there is no xorg.conf

Did that as well, but did not help.

Did you try purging Plymouth, and removing quiet and splash from cmdline?

WFM, but not mobile:
# grep RETT /etc/os-release

IME, the modesetting driver is not supported for 945G/GZ, so maybe isn't for
945GM either?
