As the title says, I’m having trouble using Wayland on my Ultrabook with Intel 620 graphics.
The model is Lenovo’s Yoga 910, and lspci reports the graphics thusly:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 620 (rev 02)
What happens is that video, once fullscreened, will exhibit tearing. It doesn’t matter what program I use, VLC or even a browser with Youtube in a tab. Video over a certain resolution (I didn’t really test this to find the sweet spot or anything) will exhibit tearing when fullscreened.
Switching to X.org fixes the issue and I get smooth video again.
Not a big deal for me personally as I pretty much need X.org for my occasional Wacom use anyway, but I find it interesting.
Is it perhaps lack of support for Wayland from Intel, or is Wayland just not there yet?
