Hi sL1pKn07,

Thanks for reporting this. This is due to some stricter EDID validation being used in the new driver. We’re tracking these issues in bug 1576197.

You should be able to use the IgnoreEdidChecksum in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to tell the driver to ignore this particular problem. In your case, that would be

Option "IgnoreEDIDChecksum" "DFP-1"

thanks for the workground. but now spawn a lots of this messages in the xorg log
