  • Drop xf86-video-intel, use modesetting driver instead (PR:136, 1 commit, 3 files changed)

In that pull there seems to be conflicting information on how to switch back to xf86-video-intel. Is a udev rule change needed or just the custom xorg.conf? I'm currently trying to nail down an image display corruption/tearing issue with an Intel Sandy Bridge and need to double check this. I made a custom xorg.conf but want to be sure a udev rule isn't needed.
Your xorg.0.log will tell.
Thanks. Just the xorg.conf is needed.

So I have a case where the modesetting driver is not working correctly. Turns out it's my Clarkdale system that has the problem (Core i5-660).

It initially loads and plays the first video fine, however any video played there after (after several videos even the Kodi GUI does this) results in a display corruption that looks like bad tearing with massive judder. A massive triangular section in the top left looks to be rendered offset by a number of pixels, video frames have massive judder and I question if the frames are being rendered in the correct order.

After applying the xorg.conf that fritsch had, it is back to displaying fine.
