Auth: sddm-helper exited with 6

Hello,

I have updated my system for the first time after 3 months and sddm displays a black screen:

Some of my installed packages:

lib32-mesa 17.0.5-1
linux 4.10.13-1
linux-api-headers 4.10.1-1
linux-firmware 20170309.695f2d6-1

sddm 0.14.0-2
sddm-kcm 5.9.5-1

xf86-input-synaptics 1.9.0-1
xf86-video-intel 1:2.99.917+772+gc72bb27a-1
xf86vidmodeproto 2.3.1-3
xorg-server 1.19.3-2
xorg-server-common 1.19.3-2
xorg-server-utils 7.6-4

Xorg seems to work, I reinstalled it, I also tried to add sddm user to the video group, but nothing changed.

Any hints?

Thanks by advance.

Search the forum. If I remember correctly there have been similar issues here of late. Also try not to go that long between updates -- 3 months is a long time for a rolling release.

I know... I'm just too lazy.
I tried to search and all the results I have are either from another distribution (requiring the video group), either have another exit code.

Re: Auth: sddm-helper exited with 6

Remove xf86-video-intel, it tends to cause issues and the modesetting driver is usually more up to date.

Sadly that's what make Xorg working.

My guess is that sddm is unable to build the OpenGL which is solved, in other distributions, by adding sddm user to video group (doesn't work here).
I also tried to ad i915 to intel_agp to /etc/mkinitcpio.conf.

No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan
