Several laptops' LCD screens have suffered permanent damage after the computers were updated to version 5.19.12 of the Linux kernel, reports Ars Technica .
"After reviewing some logs, it results in potentially incorrect delays in panels' power sequence supply which can damage LCD panels
- writes Intel engineer Ville Syrjälä.
His recommendation is that no users with Intel GPUs should run 5.19.12 of the Linux kernel and instead go back to an earlier version.
At the time of writing, version 5.19.13 of the Linux kernel is now also out.
Please note that if you have already suffered permanent display damage as a result of 5.19.12, these will unfortunately remain even if you switch to an earlier or later version of Linux.
