Xorg mini display freezes - Buster (Intel i5 10th gen)

#1 Post by fireandforget »

I've recently got a fresh Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon x1 (8th Gen), with a 10th gen intel processor and installed Debian Buster in it. After installing all the latest packages and doing the firmware upgrades (from non-free too), I realized that I'm experiencing short freezes while in Firefox or even in urxvt, for 0.5sec up to 10sec, meaning the display stops updating (keyboard and mouse input are visible after the hang passes). Sound works fine even during the display freeze.

Immediately changing TTYs is possible and does unfreeze the screen. There are no relevant logs in dmesg or Xorg.0.log or even journalctl. I mean, no logs at all our written at those specific times where these hangs happen. I have a lot of free memory (16GB) and a lot of swap (also 16GB) on the system. These happen a lot of times in a minute, even more when I'm using Firefox (I think).

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

10th generation Intel graphics need a newer Mesa version than is available from buster (or buster-backports), as you can see from the above output.

So my best bet is bullseye?

Yes, unless you would use a Debian derivative that has backported the necessary updates to a Buster base.

Is there any way to track the progress of the 10th gen Intel graphics card on Debian? Something like a popular post or umbrella tracker issue or something?
