Anyone else experiencing strange screen flicking issues since updating to Kernel 4.0?
The screen brightness intensity randomly and rapidly flickers. I am also noticing screen artifacts at the bottom of the display. It all happens periodically for a few second and stops. The issue doesn’t show up on any ISO that uses a earlier kernels. The flickering doesn’t show up on the external monitor and it doesn’t show up when I am in the Windows partition. I did notice that the flickering happens less in 4.0.1 than it did in 4.0
I just updated to 4.0.2 and the problem is still present. In fact I think I am back to square one with how terrible the screen flickering is.
