13:05 pabs3: I'm experiencing tearing on virtual consoles with Linux 5.2, is this known? the tearing occurs on the progress bar of the restic backup tool, which updates multiple times per second
14:50 orbea: pabs3: nouveau likes to tear unfortunately, unless there is some vsync option that is not turned the easiest way to stop it with a compositor like compton
17:10 imirkin: pabs3: i think there's only a frontbuffer for the console
17:10 imirkin: so tearing is rather expected
17:20 imirkin: i think some legacy fbdev users avoid this by allocating a fb that's 2x the height, and then keep flipping the offset back and forth
17:20 imirkin: effectively achieving back-buffer rendering
