KDE Plasma 6 wayland return to SDDM login

Update KDE to 6 and I want to use wayland but when enter the password on SDDM login screen turn black and after 2-3 sec return to SDDM login page.
I used closed-source nvidia driver turn it to open-source one and problem still here.
X11 works fine BTW.

Which video card do you have?

Try running on the modesetting intel driver, remove xf86-video-intel and reboot.

Don’t know how to do it.

sudo pacman -R xf86-video-intel

Uhuh I think modeseting is another thing.
so it seems I don’t have that package since

error: target not found: xf86-video-intel

Are you running on the nvidia?

how to know that?

Is that the full output of the inxi command?

You are on Intel, this graphics card is very old (11 years), I’ll see if I can find anything, but off out in a short while.

can we switch it on nvidia?
