Updated mesa package causes Xorg segmentation fault `reached target graphical interface`

After the last update, my system got stuck on reached target graphical interface after some screen splashes.
Xorg log just in case: https://pastebin.com/C7Y31aJe
Some time later I found the solution Cannot get Xorg to start after past days updates
So, I downgraded mesa from 23.3.2-1 to 22.3.1-3 and it works fine, but can cause broken update in future.
But I don’t use integrated intel GPU as a person in the previous topic, but nvidia GPU with the proprietary driver and have different address in Xorg log - Segmentation fault at address 0x0
Hardware: Ryzen 5800x3d, Nvidia GTX 1080ti

So, is there anyone with this problem?

I have the some problem reaching the login screen after today’s update. The system keeps flashing but never enters the login screen. I have used both LTS and hardened kernel but the end result is same.

Need help.

Try to downgrade mesa via virtual tty (e.g switch via ctrl-alt-F3) or ssh and reboot.
And show your /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Thanks. I read somewhere in the forum to remove xf86-video-intel and it did the trick. I also do not seems to have modesetting installed. But it worked.

Modesetting is “baked” into the kernel, remove xf86-video-intel and it takes over.

Yes. I checked using inxi-G and it is there. Thanks

I downgrade mesa and my system boot again.

Has this fix now?

Can we update our kernel etc.?

Good time to switch to a Wayland session :wink:
