Horiz. stripes after update of EndeavourOS (Arch Linux) / Budgie

I’m on EndeavourOS and have done a system update today (last update in June). After reboot the login screen (lightdm) is shown. I enter my creds and bam, the screen shows coloured stripes only, the system is unusable (this image I found on the net may give you a impression: https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSMRJe8_UdxlfZ4oFaNY1K6X5iJjHx1NRp3vv9Z7T2P9w&s).

I found Mate, Cinnamon (Software Rendering) and Openbox working. Cinnamon does not.

On my system Budgie is of version 10.8-1. I then installed the git-version budgie-desktop-git 10.8.r1.ga8df6722-1, which hasn’t changed anything for the better.

Hardware: HP EliteBook, Intel Graphics.

Any advise to overcome my situation?

Can you share inxi -Fxxxz

Do you have xf86-video-intel installed? Maybe try removing the Intel driver and reboot to run on the kernel module.

Yes, it is. Frankly, I don’t dare to. And OTOH, Mate works, Openbox too. Cinnamon not, Cinnamon (Software Rendering) does. What do they do differently?

Yes, you need to remove it.

When you don’t have it, it will use the modesetting driver instead. This is what you want for newer Intel graphics. The older Intel driver is unmaintained at this point.

And the system will boot then for sure? Will I have a display then? What if not? Isn’t there a possibility to disable the driver? Reenabling would be much easier than reinstalling it without a working DE without a NetworkManager (never managed to have an Internet connection w/o a working DE).

It should work fine. If it doesn’t you can fix it from the TTY.

You can use NetworkManager from the TTY with nmtui

That indeed did it, thanks a lot. Man, you are my hero!
