Core dump (Xorg crash) every login

Running journalctl -p3 -xb it turns out that every time I log in I have a coredump because Xorg crashes? It restarts automatically so I would never have noticed without running the command.

I can’t seem to get the EOS log tool to work; I know I can pipe it directly but memory like a goldfish, someone will have to tell me exactly how. :slight_smile:

There should be a check box on the bottom to supply a web link.

…Edit: Wrong. Still getting coredumps every log in from Xorg as above.

Have tried reinstall NVIDIA drivers, did not help. Will try to boot into the LTS kernel.

Edit: No core dump in 5.4 LTS with Xorg /Nidia . So either Zen or all of the latest then.

Booted on regular up to date Linux kernel, coredump.
The problem, obviously is the newest kernel vs NVIDIA 460 drivers.

Edit: To clarify, running

inxi -G

Graphics:  Device-1: Intel UHD Graphics 630 driver: i915 v: kernel 
           Device-2: NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050 Ti] driver: nvidia v: 460.32.03 
           Display: x11 server: 1.20.10 driver: nvidia resolution: <missing: xdpyinfo> 
           Message: Unable to show advanced data. Required tool glxinfo missing.

Still indicates the drivers are up and running, it’s “just” that Xorg crashes and restarts during login, and then it works.
I suspect a “Proper” solution to run on kernel 5.10 is to run on free drivers or wait until 5.11 which reportedly has better compatibility with NVIDIA.

can you report config X11 file for Nvidia
in /etc/X11/Xorg.d/…

Section "Device"
    Identifier "Nvidia Card"
    Driver "nvidia"
    VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
    Option "NoLogo" "true"

Edit: For now i am using the LTS kernel. It supports all the hardware I am using, so…
