I’m looking for some instruction on how to troubleshoot the screen flicker I’m getting on my workstation.
The issue begins in GDM after a boot. Certain mouse movements or menu animations will be accompanied by a flicker across my screen.After logging in the issue persists and a flicker can be seen when I press the super key to open the gnome search window.
If I go into displays and change the screen refresh rate from 60 to 30 and back to 60, this usually fixes my issue, including if I log out and log back in. However, if I reboot my system, the issue comes back and I have to play with the display refresh options again.
Can I get information on where I should begin troubleshooting the issue?
Gnome 3.38.1 on Wayland
AMD Radeon RX 5700XT

Does the problem occur if you switch from Wayland to XOrg?
The issue occurs with X11, yes. Confirmed today.

I’m having the screen flickering too. I’m running an AMD 3700x and AMD 5700XT. I have it on both Wayland and X11. I saw your post on another forum Jared, and I tried using the newest kernel, which gives me a kernel panic. I then tried every kernel (started on 5.8) from 5.6 to the newest one. I thought 5.6 was going to work, I had stopped experiencing screen flickering, but I lost all audio, so I rebooted to try and go into my 5.8 kernel to see if the audio worked there, it did, I went back to 5.6 and I can’t get rid of the flickering again. I really want to use Fedora, but both versions 33, and now 34 are giving me this issue. I’m at a lost for what to do.
lspci also says I’m using the amdgpu driver.
