hi everyone

i have a intel atom netbook that i have arch installed on and have been
using it for the last couple of years without any issues,
after doing a pacman -Syu recently when i reboot it gets through boot up
to the point of setting up the desktop and then crashes with  2 thirds
of the screen from left to right fill with a random rows of dots on a
black background and the last third has my desktop with an exit icon at
the bottom,
i went through the process of downgrading the kernel and got it to boot
normally again
i thought that because it was a 32 bit computer the problem was to do
with arch no longer supporting the i686 architecture
so i migrated the laptop to  Arch Linux 32, everything went smoothly ,
after the migration i rebooted the laptop  and i was back with the same
problem.
i chrooted into the laptop with a live usb stick and retrieved a portion
of the journal
here,s the log. error-report
<http://codepad.org/mtWYqv2N>
my Desktop Environment is lxde
if more of the logs are needed please let me know

i would be thankful for any pointers to fixing the problem

my guess would be more 4.13 problems like this:

you were probably right to downgrade. you might try that again.

good luck.

Hi there

you might consider to first, report issue with your environment, like
hardware or system version

and, this seems more likely a video card driver issue, check out the
driver for your netbook module,

and it's should have a compatible one
