    You should never have to do this. I’ve run Arch for many years continuously, and doing something like this has never been even close to necessary. This should be a second to last ditch effort, right before a clean install; basically it’s throwing up your hands in desperation. If you’re considering doing this, stop, ask for help, do some more research and actually fix your system instead of taking this hail mary approach.

    Thank you. I had some issues with DisplayLink (after some updates it was not refreshing properly the screen – only when the mouse moved). I tried downgrading manually some packages, without success – I guess that I missed the right ones. Using this method worked flawlessly.
