[SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

after upgrading everything via

pacman -Syu

gdm started failing (or xwindow I'm a bit af a newbie and can't tell) I decided to start a new post as it seems to be gnome specific under the advice of someone from my previous topic
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 5#p1294295
during bootup the screen gets to "Starting Accounts Service..." then goes black for a second (as it normally would when it's about to redirect you to the gui for the login) and then returns to give:

...
...
[ OK ] Started GNOME display manager.
          Starting Accounts Service...
eno1.[ OK ] Reached target Multi-User System.[ OK ] Reached torget Graphical Interface.hcpcd on

pressing ctrl+alt+f2 can still go to the command prompt login

symptoms:
after running journalctl I see that the final error usually seems to be

gnome-session[639]Gdk-WARNING: gnome-session: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0

(the only other thing there seems to be bluetooth audio)
running systemctl status gdm gives

active (running)

in green along with all the details (such as pid, time it's been active, etc.) so it appears (the system thinks) that gdm is working correctly.
running startx gives the correct (basic) windowed system.

can anyone shed some light on what might be happening here?

could any of these break gnome?

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

yeah, I read that, I've copied the mirrorlist, pacman.conf and colord.conf across (backing up the old copies of course) while leaving the others but I can't imagine they could break gnome since none of them seem like files that are anything to do with it? does anyone know any way any of these files could interact with gnome as outlined in the first post.

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

or rather, does anyone know what's wrong with gnome as outilned in the first post so I can figure out what to look for? I tried updating it with pacman -S gnome, I may try and reinstall it fully with

pacman -Rns gnome
pacman -S gnome

stopping the service first I suppose, would you guys think that's a good course of action?

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

You need to merge all of your pac files.

To sort out gnome:
Open up and login to a fresh tty

systemctl stop gdm
systemctl disable graphical.target multi-user.target gdm
pacman -S gnome 
pacman -Rns gnome
pacman -S gnome
systemctl enable gdm graphical.target
reboot

The fact that gdm broke after an update and that you have unmergee pac files hints towards breakage caused by not merging pac files. Or some or other upgrade broke gnome.

Post your pacman log since you've had problems with gnome.

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

Are you using testing? I'm surprised that you are getting new versions of group and gshadow since I didn't see new versions of these with the recent filesystem update. The last time I got pacnew files for these was in March.

EDIT: grepping for warning will not capture everything you want. In particular, it will not find all error lines.

EDIT EDIT: have you rebooted since upgrading the kernel etc.?

Those errors in pacman.log are potentially unrelated to gnome and gdm, what's the output of

sudo systemctl status gdm

And what happens if you reboot after what I said you should do? Could you also post the output of
sudo journalctl -b
After a reboot

Edit: sorry, you already posted gdm status above, so gdm seems alright

also I have rebooted since update and I am updating an old system (hasn't been touched since february/march I think, hence the group and gshadow files, I've tried to do everything I can find in the news for updating correctly)

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

I didn't think so as I didn't install it, I do have mesa 9.1.3-2 (I guess that may have been a dependancy of nvidia) (from pacman -Q |grep mesa)

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

If you're using the proprietary nvidia drivers, you need nvidia-libgl instead of mesa-libgl

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

I've got nvidia-libgl 319.32-1, (and the same lib32-nvidia-libgl)

Damaged, maybe? Try reinstalling it.

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

Note that I suggested mesa-libgl because that package provides the library which your log shows cannot be found (libGL.so.1). I didn't realise nvidia used a different package but whichever package, it looks like there is something wrong with the installation of that library, if the logs are to be believed. (libGL.so.1 should be a sym link to the relevant library provided by the package.)

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

ok, kinda weird, so reinstalling that package worked in that I now get a gui login prompt. however trying to sign in doesn't give anything, (I haven't moved those /etc/group and /etc/gshadow pacnew files across, might that be necessary?) the result of journalctl is

so it seems that pam_unix(gdm-password:auth) can't find my password or something? does anyone have any idea why that might be? should I try reinstalling that? or gkr-pam... what is that?

p.s. thanks everyone for the help so far, I can't say how helpful the community has been smile

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

Sounds like you need to merge your pac files I think

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

Note: merge them. Do not just replace your existing copies with the new versions else you will break things badly. You need to merge the changes you have made to the files with the changes in the updated default. (I don't mean you edited the files directly but you did things which are reflected in these files. This includes stuff like adding your user account which is why you do not want to replace your copy of the files but only to update them.)

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

hahaha, cool, just checking, I've been copying my username into the user groups that need it (e.g. mail/wheel etc.) but I was wondering whether I should add some groups that are missing from e.g my /etc/group and my /etc/gshadow in my etc/gshadow there was the lines

usbmux:!::
rtkit:!::
gdm:!::

which were not present in the newer versions. etc. also it appears that I have uuidd:x:: in one and uuidd:!:: on another, should I stick with the new one?

Re: [SOLVED] gdm failing after upgrade with pacman -Syu

Yes you will need the lines for those groups if you are using the packages associated with them such as, I imagine, gdm. For uuidd I can't remember but I have x in my line and I am generally quite careful about checking when I merge changes. However, since I cannot now remember why I went with x, this is far from solid evidence.
