Manjaro XFCE doesn't boot after update

So you get to the login screen, and login with your password, and it just shows this?

What if you press CTRL+ALT+F3?

With this key combination I was able to enter the tty.

Great.
Can you give me the output of:
systemctl status lightdm

and
journalctl -xe

But immediately after that it showed again brcmfmac: power management disabled

Thanks.

Can you try running:
sudo systemctl start lightdm

And then again (assuming it fails) check
journalctl -xe

There are more than 6000 lines so I included only last part. image image

Seems like an Xorg dump.

Okay so what do you suggest me to do now?

The problem is resolved in this thread. You need to downgrade mesa or install the updated mesa-git.

Same problems to me after update

Do what @kayhan1996 linked this thread.

I have the same issue.

I used stevenfalco's command to fix it.

Namely:

pacman -Suy mesa-git

and answered y to the prompt to remove mesa as shown here:

[x@x ~]$ sudo pacman -Suy mesa-git

Thanks for the help!

Now that "stable mesa" has been fixed, you might want to switch from the mesa-git back to stable mesa:

pacman -Suy mesa

The above command will replace mesa-git with mesa 19.3.2-2 (or later).

Thanks.

I also noticed that there are optional dependencies for Mesa which are described as "for accelerated video playback" namely mesa-vdpau and libva-mesa-driver.

Does it make sense to install them on RPi4?

Thanks for the reminder @stevenfalco and for your original fix :slight_smile:
