A new update came this past week turning dri3 back on,
Please help test this if you are able.
For *me*, it's pretty good, but I've now experienced at least 3
deadlocks (when left idle and screen off) similar to past results
dri3. And... oddly, chrome seems to freeze similar to plasmashell
you may try add:
# cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
Identifier "Intel Graphics"
Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
#Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
and because opengl direct rendering, doesn't work in VirtualBox
(released yesterday, 4.0.16 ) with Fedora 24 branch KDE, we may try
change AccelMethod , to see if fix something.
With "my" KDE4 it working great even better than before , so
unfortunately my deduction is, Plasma 5 have some serious graphic
problems , but what and where ? , but is just with Intel graphics
boards ? , anyway I will build KDE4 workspace and friends for F24 .
We need understand from where came this deadlocks and fix it of course.
But note I don't mean all KDE 5 is bad , I just use kde workspace from
KDE4 the rest is all Fedora out out the box , may goal on next bunch of
packages for F24 , reduce even more the number of package , for example
I'm plan use oxygen-themes etc of official release.
