problem with black windows (CentOS 7/Intel UHD Graphics 620)

Just a heads up. We started getting blacked out windows for assign on a laptop with Intel® UHD Graphics 620 (Kabylake GT2) after updating CentOS 7 at the end of February. This seems to be down to a specific hardware/driver combination, but others may encounter something similar. For us the fix was to roll back the mesa-dri-drivers package one increment from

mesa-dri-drivers.x86_64 0:18.3.4-6.el7_7


mesa-dri-drivers.x86_64 0:18.3.4-5.el7

with the command

sudo yum downgrade mesa-dri-drivers

hopefully this will be fixed in the next update of the package.

Thanks, Brian.

Looks like it is similar to the following thread
