I cannot update to this latest.

I also experience flickering on the external monitor, no matter what renderer I set. The only way to solve it for me is downgrading sway and using wlroots0.16-nvidia. I am also using the proprietary nvidia drivers though.

Strange. Then it's probably my setup issue. I'll try to purge pkgcache, orphaned files & try again.

Oh mine's 1660Super. I'm using nvidia-dkms (which is proprietary). Need to be on dkms caz I use zen kernel.

@asklow which card are you using? I've tried both a 2080 ti and 4090.

Though I've only tried the "nvidia-open" package and not "nvidia".

kplant commented on 2024-03-11 02:18 (UTC)

Yeah sure. I removed sway, wlroots-nvidia, and wlroots0.16 to be paranoid.

Installed sway, then wlroots-nvidia which removed wlroots. Restarted everything and do not have any issues.

I've tried both explicitly setting WLR_RENDERER="gles2" and not setting that environment variable, both yield the same result of no artifacting.

Yup. Simon thrown away the issue like it's NVIDIA bug.

Well, as you explained this introduces a blocking call which waits for GPU operations to complete. This is very much a performance regression. There is no reason why this should be necessary, glFlush introduces a synchronization barrier, which is supposed to be waited on by the buffer consumer via implicit synchronization. NACK, sorry, this is a NVIDIA bug.

I still don't understand why this package still ain't working for me. Have reinstalled the whole sway stack many times. Can you once test it by reinstall on your side ?

@asklow not sure, my PR was rejected before I ever made this patch.

I donno why devs keep glflush & not change it to glfinish. Does anyone know why ?

Also, you should probably update the patch. The line number has changed to 39.

Yes I have tried it again. My biggest concern is flickers while using terminals. Also. I did have vulkan-validation-layers & WLR_RENDERER flag but flickers didn't seem to go away.

Screen flickering still happens for me, but only on the external monitor. I tried setting the WLR_RENDERER to 'gles2' as well. Vulcan renderer no longer works for me.
