Regression with Intel Corporation [8086:22b0] and [8086:22b1] GPU since 4.9
(I'm opening a ticket about this one since it is only documented on #16447 (closed) which is irrelevant)
Since Tails 4.9 and the use of a 5.7 kernel, Tails can't finish starting with the following intel GPU:
Intel Corporation [8086:22b0] Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-E8000/J3XXX/N3XXX Series PCI Configuration Registers
Intel corporation [8086:22b1] Atom/Celeron/Pentium/Processor X5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx Integrated Graphics Controller
Intel Corporation [8086:Da06] Haswell
- in normal mode, the users are facing a confusing welcome screen with nothing more than the blue background, and even if the windows are not displayed it seems that the keyboard shortcuts are working to change the settings.
- in troubleshooting mode they are facing the usual custom GDM error message mentioning their GPU
"According to https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/intel/-/issues/1605 this problem is fixed in Linux 5.8-rc1 and newer (1c8ee8b92fb6ac9d5975147cc902e8c142eca338), but was not backported to the 5.7.y stable branch ⇒ we'll get the fix once we upgrade to Linux 5.8, i.e. likely in Tails 4.11 or 4.12."
this kernel upgrade is tracked on #17896 (closed)
Some users have reported being able to use an external monitor.
(edit: removed the 'we need your feedback' section because this ticket is fixed)
