I rebooted my system after a few months (since april 2020).
Just before reboot, i had updated the whole system (kernel, nvidia drivers etc) and since then, the x server fails to start normally.
I use XDM + i3wm combination for my daily usage.
The log files at
Xorg.n.log are empty as well as the ones inside
The output from most recent boot (
journalctl -b) can be found here http://sprunge.us/96m4nD
I'm unsure on how to proceed on this issue. I've tried
- recreating the
xorg.conffile from scratch using
- removing and reinstalling all nvidia+xorg packages
- trying sddm/lxdm instead of xdm
Any help would be appreciated!
If I disable the XDM service, and fallback to getty shell to execute
startx manually, the command just shows the default output, with no errors but the system gets frozen.
I've also enabled the
debug-shell.service from systemctl, and the Ctrl+Alt+F# don't respond either, so I can't get access to the debug shell.
I guess there is some issue only when I have multihead (multi-monitor) setup. When I disconnected my secondary screen from the gpu, the system started responding normally.
Reconnecting the screen back again leaves the whole system frozen. Still no clue on why this happens.
