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

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

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

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.
