Re: [opensuse-factory] Major UI problem after latest TW update

inxi output is as follows:

That kernel is 3 weeks old. Does it work better with that than the current

Next to try after current kernel is 'zypper rm xf86-video-intel'. The Intel
driver hasn't had an official release since 3.5 years ago. My Haswell and all
other Intel gfx I have that are supported by it are happily using the
modesetting driver provided by the X server, both on Leap and TW.

If the driver switch doesn't provide a cure, try temporarily disabling Plymouth,
by appending plymouth.enable=0 in your Grub menu using the e key.
