[INFO] 5.3.7-2 kernel hangs during boot on Thinkpad - fb0: switching to inteldrmfb from EFI VGA

Looks like some users including myself are updating to 5.3.7-2 kernel, reboot and hangs on:

* fb0: switching to inteldrmfb from EFI VGA

Here is the bug report

The fix is to blacklist gsmi.

I didn't have a blacklist so I made new file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
then add the 1 line

Code: Select all

blacklist gsmi
Upgraded linux, linux-firmware and linux-headers

Reboot and all works good now!
