[Solved] Update today breaks plasma

What do your logs say? There is a post on here somewhere telling you how to do it, will look. BRB.

Probably the new nvidia driver, what is your nvidia card?

Not an issue with Plasma, as far as I can tell. Everything works fine here.

nvidia gt740
Im still in the process of looking into it myself, but I get stuck on things easy sometimes,
I’ve got 4 more machines to update but don’t want to until I can solve this.

Same problem here " Nvidia GK104 GTX 770". Laptop with Intel graphics still works. KDE/Plasma on both. Unfortunately may not have time to troubleshoot until after 10PM USA EDT.

try:

mkinitcpio -p linux

maybe ?

It’s likely not in the repos - check the AUR with yay :shushing_face:

AH… duh me

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nvidia-470xx-dkms/

The 470 driver binary is also in the @jonathon’s kernel-lts third party repo.

Add the repo and use pacman to install.
