Problem with Xorg after booting

After I updated Arch, I wasn't able to login after boot screen.
It was saying 'Starting Arch...' at the top and even for a second was able to see the mouse, my monitor was going to sleep.
It wasn't waking up with mouse or keyboard buttons except Ctrl+Alt+Del or Ctrl+Alt+F-Number

I had to login from another tty than tty1 and then type 'sudo pkill -15 Xorg' to be able to login.

I do not know how to find what the problem is or how can I solve it.

I use Plasma KDE with sddm.

Re: Problem with Xorg after booting

After you kill Xorg and login, are you able to (re)start X successfully?  If so, my first suspicion would be that you may not have early KMS enabled.

In either case, please post the Xorg log from the failed login as well as a journal from one such boot.
