Re: GDM login no longer works after upgrade to Gnome 3.16

Just to confirm you only updated (or downgraded) gdm to 3.16.1-2 (or 3.16.0.1-1)
what about libgdm ? (atm I downgraded all even the gnome shell and desktop and mutter... all updates that came today and relate to gnome )

Re: GDM login no longer works after upgrade to Gnome 3.16

For me updating all packets to most recent version fixed the problem. Seems that the gdm 3.16.1-2 indeed did the fix. I have no downgraded packets anymore.

i first downgrade gdm to 3.16.0.1-1, and it worked again(get into gnome automatically).
after i saw that also update gdm to the newly version(3.16.1-2) is also working, i pacman -Syu my system and yes, it is also working with this package.

i did nothing with libgdm.

Re: GDM login no longer works after upgrade to Gnome 3.16

Haha, I gotta say that this update was a turbulent experience for me! I updated the most broken patch (before upstream released the fixes), and I was convinced that I was responsible for the breakage, as I was getting "radeon ring 0" driver halt errors spammed at me in TTY, (google search said it that means hardware error, so I freaked out a bit) and was unable to load into GDM. So I pretty much tried everything I could think of (replacing my mesa/ATI git drivers with stable, uninstalled GNOME and tried LightDM, but apparently that was broken too, so I got unlucky I guess) and ultimately formatted/reinstalled Arch the next day lol.

That was the first instance of an Arch update "destroying" my computer... I won't be running Arch updates at 4AM anymore lol. Granted this thread's here now, but I don't think it was when I ran the update, so I had no way of knowing D:.

Gonna make sure I update solely in the afternoon now. Though, hot damn GNOME! Still surprised that happened.........learned the hard way that I should've stayed patient and ran Syu later on rather then nuke my drive and start over...(and sadly I still suck at Linux so I have no experience chrooting)

ps: I know I probably sound like an idiot to most of you who actually know how to use Arch, but at least I learned something big_smile

Used Archboot to install...I've read up on chrooting but still kind of confused on it. But I was able to use a TTY so I dunno if I would've needed to, because I just wanted to adjust my packages....I should've just downgraded the updated packages, but I was getting GPU errors so I mistakingly thought it was a mesa/radeon driver problem.

That said, it probably would've been no problem to fix if I learned the classic install way...

Re: GDM login no longer works after upgrade to Gnome 3.16

Hehe I have been down the reinstall after update road before.... but last time (3 years ago) the update only broke with my settings and I wasn't able to fix it again with newer updates...

but yeah normally its better to wait or have a second laptop/pc that you update only after the first ones reboots fine wink

Re: GDM login no longer works after upgrade to Gnome 3.16

Mmm i thought this would solve the problem on all of my machines, but one is still segfaulting in libcogl:

Re: GDM login no longer works after upgrade to Gnome 3.16

Same here today. I followed all given hints (remove 2nd monitor, reinstall libgweather) but it still stucks at this "Something has gone wrong screen".

Have you all here solved the problem or do you still waitung for an update of any package?


Have a nice day

Re: GDM login no longer works after upgrade to Gnome 3.16

@wwn I got the same screen when I upgraded to nvidia-349 today. I just switched to nvidia-340xx because I don't have time to sort out the actual problem.

Same for me (upgraded to nvidia-349 today), looks like this version broke something.

Re: GDM login no longer works after upgrade to Gnome 3.16

Something went wrong with -Suy today. I did change from Nvidia to ATI graphics hardware.  I have now running xf64-video-ati and GDM bug exists. Here are the steps I did to switch to ATI today:

1) GDM worked fine with Nvidia (prop.) driver
2) I switched to the ATI graphics card then upgraded  with -Suy (Nvidia driver upgrades got ion, because NV drivers were still present. Not very good idea, but I decided to let the -Suy run through before removing the Nvidia drivers.)
3) After -Suy finiched, I removed Nvidia drivers/libs and switched to xf64-video-ati.
4) I restarted my new ATI system and got into GDM no-login trouble.

I assume, another package besides the NV drivers cause the gdm bug. How can I get list of all packages the last -Suy upgraded?

EDIT: [SOLVED]
1) I deleted /etc/X11/xorg.conf and cleaned up /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
2) I installed Cinnamon
3) I copied /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc over my user's ~/.xinitrc and added "exec cinnamon"
4) I run for another -Suy upgrade with some GTK/Gnome related packages running in.
5) I restarted GDM
6) GDM is starting Cinnamon/Gnome as expected. One of those steps solved the issue.

Re: GDM login no longer works after upgrade to Gnome 3.16

Resolved for me by downgrading to the previous nvidia driver version (nvidia, nvidia-utils, nvidia-libgl)

pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/nvidia-346.59-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/nvidia-utils-346.59-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/nvidia-libgl-346.59-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz


Update: Steam isn't launching anymore. I'm not sure if it's a related issue, but more files may need to be downgraded.

Update 2: It seems fixed for me now.

This thread https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=196499 talks about needing to apply processor microcode (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Microcode). I do remember after an update a few days ago that VLC didn't install/configure properly due to a segmentation fault. I did some Googleing at the time and things seemed to point towards needing to apply processor microcode - which I didn't want to do at the time. Today I flashed my BIOS to the latest version and applied the processor microcode, and now I am running the latest nvidia driver and Steam is working.

Flashing the BIOS without microcode didn't fix things. I didn't try microcode without the BIOS update but I assume it would have worked.
