Description presidentnotsure.eo 2017-05-25 19:57:20 UTC
I reported a bug on the fedora bugzilla quite a while ago, but no one has responded. I told myself that it might be more appropriate to put it here. So, here is the link:

Comment 1 Chris Wilson 2017-05-25 20:22:54 UTC
The HW cursor fails and is replaced by a swcursor (due to an issue in the display hardware) that is being mishandled by the compositor. The delay in rendering is due to a bug in mesa.
Comment 2 Chris Wilson 2017-05-25 20:30:32 UTC
To avoid the swcursor fallback, don't use pipe 2. Something like "xrandr --output HDMI2 --preferred --pipe 0" should do the trick. Still bizarre that an earlier application chose to configure it on pipe 2.
Comment 3 presidentnotsure.eo 2017-05-25 20:46:39 UTC
$ xrandr --output HDMI2 --preferred --pipe 0
xrandr: unrecognized option '--pipe'

The option would be '--crtc 0'. Unfortunately it's not going to help because only pipe C (ie. crtc 2) can drive the HDMI output (port D).
