I updated my EndeavourOS installation, but when I rebooted it, Plasma Wayland, which worked before the system update flawlessly, now goes straight to a black screen and ctrl+alt+f2 does not work and it requires a hard reboot to fix. Now only X11 works, albeit not well.
nvidia-drm.modeset=1 and egl-wayland are set, but I still cannot get Wayland to work anymore. Did something happen with a recent update?
No help, but all working here. Can you supply some hardware info?, very difficult to suggest anything without it, and check your logs.
Also - what kernel? I had some issues with Zen (all working now), but not with the standard kernel, but I think it was self-inflicted, but may not of been. And finally, I assume grub, but what mkinit system? Dracut or mkinitcpio?
Oh sure. The only problem is ctrl + alt + f2 doesn’t give me a usable tty. And wayland is completely broken.
I am using an AMD Ryzen 7950X & Nvidia RTX 4090 custom built desktop BTW. Stock kernel. Again, cant see which one because I can’t get past SDDM and the ttys are frozen.
I cannot seem to get any farther, but I’ll try using the iGPU and see I can get into Wayland or a tty. X11 wasn’t any improvement.
Finally, personally, I don’t think that attitude with the “all work and no help” will help attract new users to Linux. And I was in the middle of a Zoom meeting and had to use my laptop because Linux was unusable, so I was kind of rushing to get on the meeting.
Now in order for the nice people here to help you, returning what inxi -FAZ --no-host provides and paste it here in a Preformatted text. You can do that in X11 as well.
Further information about providing good information can be found here:
It sounds like you are frustrated here because what @xircon said only was that he can’t be much help all is working for him. Then he asks for some hardware info and logs in order to try to help with your issue.
So i think you are being disrepectful with this comment. No one has given any attitude in my opinion.
Maybe I misinterpreted @xircon 's comment. Though it doesn’t help though that some other Linux forums (not this one) are kind of rude. If it sounds like I was a bit hasty to come to a conclusion, it’s because I’m getting fed up with Nvidia 4000 series & AMD Radeon 7000 series GPUs and their Linux drivers being completely broken in completely different ways.
Anyways, I am currently trying to get into the system with the AMD iGPU.
I’ll run inxi -FAZ --no-host when I get back into the system.
Edit: Plasma X11 works; running inxi -FAZ gives me the following:
I also don’t know if this helps, but running nvidia-inst wants me to remove a package that is required by Steam: lib32-nvidia-utils I cannot remove it without removing Steam first, so I haven’t tried it yet.
I see you are using kde with Wayland. Rendering is being done on the nvidia graphics which don’t work well with Wayland. You may be better to switch to xorg.
Although Wayland does work well on Kde I’m not so sure that it does so on Nvidia. It seems to me that Wayland really caters to Gnome. Nvidia on the other hand caters to Windows. You can get a good experience with Wayland on Kde don’t get me wrong but i think it would be with xorg.
Edit2: I’m not saying that nvidia doesn’t work and maybe some other users who have Nvidia and are using Wayland could let you know their experience. You also high some very high end hardware that it is running on.
Check which packages were updated/installed since that update. Maybe one of them has a bug.
If the issue is with a new Plasma package update, maybe it is a configuration problem in the user account.
Create a new user account and login to that in Plasma Wayland, to check for improved behavior.
You may also try installing and booting to linux-lts.
FWIW, if there is a partial update situation, it may explain any troubles. I mean this:
I do find it weird that another laptop I have with an AMD Ryzen 5900HS & an RTX 3050 Ti (though stuck on Optimus) does work fine, but it seems to be an issue with RTX 4000 GPUs. And I find even more weird that it did work then just stopped after an Nvidia driver update and a reboot later.
I think it might be something to do with the Nvidia drivers for RTX 4000. I installed Garuda Linux on the same desktop, with the same black screen results on Wayland. I think I’m just going to use X11 on it for a bit longer…
F**king Nvidia and their proprietary … If only they open-source more of their drivers and took Linux seriously like Intel & AMD do…
