After upgrading to Xorg 1.20 I have several issues with my graphics. Using: GPU: Radeon 3000 GPU: GeForce GT 630
X.Org X Server 1.20.0 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: Linux Arch Linux Current Operating System: Linux archlabs 4.16.9-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu May 17 02:10:09 UTC 2018 x86_64 Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-linux root=UUID=780f2082-0707-4cfa-bd80-275a8900c09c rw quiet Build Date: 16 May 2018 05:24:07PM
Current version of pixman: 0.34.0
I have one monitor plugged into my motherboard and two monitors into my gpu. On start-up xrandr was setting my setup correctly.
"xrandr --output VGA-0 --primary --mode 1280x1024 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output DVI-I-1-1 --mode 1280x1024 --pos 3200x0 --rotate normal --output HDMI-1-1 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 1280x0 --rotate normal"
Now the script fails with "xrandr: Configure crtc 2 failed". And only the monitor plugged into my motherboard is working. I was once able to use a second monitor, but it was glitching like hell. After a restart I wasn't able to achieve the same. Now my mouse if flickering.
I assumed it was a problem with the new mesa drivers, but according to someone helping me there, it might be the new xorg server. See mesa thread: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106580
