Yeah, my 14+ year old laptop with mesa and xf86-video-intel (i915) won’t start the graphics session. Xorg just segfaults. TTY works fine.
I’m too drunk to troubleshoot it right now, as my New Year’s party just finished, but it’s something that awaits me later today.
Off topic, I’m a bit pissed off at it, because I couldn’t tune my harpsichord properly for the party (because the tuner program I wrote runs on this laptop). So I had a party with a slightly out of tune harpsichord! What a scandal, can you imagine? I had to explain to my friends that I use Arch.
i see some users reporting the same on telegram… intel GPU but no xf86 driver installed and downgrading mesa is bringing x starting again…
If someone find a BUG report on mesa or arch please link here so we can investigate more.
