Screen flickering in nouveau while browsing websites
Assigned to Nouveau Project
I have a strange flickering issue i reported and asked if this flickering issue is related to the other issue i reported: https://bugzilla.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=110500
I did not get any answer if the issue is related to the other issue i had and if i should report a separate bug.
Thus i report it here because the system is nearly unusable. The system have to switch from Windows to Linux as soon as possible. It cant be switched over because of this flickering issue.
How i get this screen flickering: When i boot up the system it first works fine. To get into the flickering mode, i have to fast scroll up/down some websites. When the system then starts flickering the system is unusable. The whole webbrowser jumps around. When i open a terminal the whole terminal is flickering around. Sometimes it does not flicker but it also does not update. When i then move the terminal window it flickers around and i can see the new terminal text.
I have to reboot the computer to get it in a working state again.
I dont have any issues reported in dmesg or in the xorg logfile.
OS used: Kubuntu 18.04 LTS.
