Andrzejl, there have been several threads about problems with intel modules and kernel 3.8.x .

Try downgrading the kernel to 3.7.x .


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

look in /var/cache/pacman/pkg for older versions of installed packages.

This wiki page has more details/ alternatives : Downgrading_Packages

Re: [CAUSE FOUND] Kernel 3.8.3-2 Intel 915GM GPU full screen game problem.

Hi guys.

I tried downgrading kernel as soon as I noticed the problem - it solves the issue but it's kinda scary coz I have also upgraded kernel to the testing version and the testing version is doing exactly the same thing (as in breaks stuff).

I do not want to do the partial upgrade / pin kernel packages. I would rather see the problem resolved in future releases of the kernel hence I have reported a bug and was hoping that some other folks will join the bug report with ideas or at least vote for the task so it will get developers attention.

Thank You all for Your replies.

Regards.

Andrzej

Hi.

I have found out (several hours ago) that the problem is in the intel code.

The bug report was first posted here:

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/34355

Then I went to the #intel-gfx irc channel on Frenode and I upstreamed the bug here:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62944

Now all we can do is wait for them to fix the code.

Regards.

Andrzej
