Xorg segmentation fault

My install is quite new (two days ago), I was using Manjaro prior to bare Arch. I'm facing several problems booting my computer (NetworkManager.service fails to start etc.), it takes me 3 or 4 times of forcing a shutdown (which in return gives me an fsck error big_smile) to get into a working system. I also tried other distros from Debian to arch-based ones, and I found bare Arch to be more hassle-free than others. Maybe it's my hardware, idk.

During booting, after every service is started, it hangs with a blinking cursor and when I try to start the X server manually, I see this (Xorg log, pastebin).

Edit: I use i3wm with Lightdm

Re: Xorg segmentation fault

How have you set up your graphics stack (card, drivers)? Please detail exact steps.

Re: Xorg segmentation fault

And the log shows the modesetting driver is being used and seems to suggest there is an intel gpu.

Follow the wiki for installing Xorg, post the diagnostic and information gathering output here, and test X without a DM.

Re: Xorg segmentation fault

The other GPU would be Nvidia?  So the system needs a hybrid graphics configuration?  Although the crash of X is unusual for an unconfigured hybrid system which would normally just use the integrated GPU or blank screen.
Edit:
@bar1917bar can you also please post the output of dmesg as well please.
