    Dispay issues since kernel 5.2.x with Ryzen 3400G | Fedora 30

    Since the latest kernel updates my screen has some graphical issues, like flashing pixels etc.

    I returned to kernel 5.1.20 so than I have no issues. Is this a known issue and how can I solve it.

    On my main PC with a R2700X and a Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 8GD5 I had no issues, except this morning (kernel 5.2.5) suddenly the screen went blank after a few hours. So at the moment I'm back at kernel 5.1.20 there too.

    I had to return to kernel 5.1.20 also....

    I can't run the Xfce Desktop with the new kernel 5.2.5/5.2.6....

    Edit: kernel 5.2.7 doesn't work either

    When i try to login, all I get is a black/blank screen!!!! I tried messing with Xfce, but It is a kernel bug....

    Hi!
    same situation with 5.2 VGA issues.

    I need to return to 5.1.20 where everything was great. Next try on 5.2.20 =)

    I don't know why there aren't more post on this thread complaining....
    I would think this would be a problem for LOTS of people.... It can't be just the 3 of us....

    Same here today with the 3400G. 5.2.7 same issues.
    It seems weird to me that a new kernel bring this issues.

    Also on my 2700x with Radeon RX 580 I have issues sometimes to get back a screen after wake-up. Already switched of screensaver.

    It's a bummer, I use Fedora for years but now I'm confused if I should stay. Or has it something to do with XFCE?

    edit
    I installed KDE desktop. No issues there what I can see directly. Not really tested yet.

    I'm the other guy without issues. With the new kernel I have no issues or video distortions or whatever. My video card was a $59 special. The only game I play on Linux is free cell. I do watch many many youtube videos, and here again, I have no issues.

    Are you using a Ryzen 3400G?

    No, just a 2700x. Sorry,
    Forget my comments. In reading the posts one by one, the topic header drifted off the page following some two or three page downs . What I remembered was the "Ryzen" part of the topic and kernel 5.2

    Clear.
    With the 2700x I sometimes only have issues with wake-up. The real problem is with the 3400G. I only get a blank screen woth kernel 5.2.7. With 5.2.6 I get pixelated issues on my screen.
    I see there were already a few kernel updates this week, hopefully it is solved soon.

    I tried many versions of Xfce new and old, and only have problems with kernel 5.2.x.... So they must have written in a new kernel bug....

    I have screen wake-up problems with latest versions of Xfce power manager.... I just use screensaver without turning off the screen now....

    FWIW, I have had no issues so far with a Ryzen 2400G on kernel 5.2.7, using Gnome Classic.

    Thanks Spear,

    That's excatly what happens here with the latest kernel. Good to see that it is not just me and that it is reported by several people. So I wait patiently for the update. I guess it will be solved soon.
