Stuck at blinking cursor, Nvidia drivers

Hi,

I'm having issues with a blinking cursor after boot. I tried installing an older version of Nvidia drivers and I forgot to run mkinitcpio -P (I created a hook later), so I chrooted into the system and executed the command. I got stuck at "Starting systemd-udevd version 252.4-2-arch". I tried to install the latest drivers, and instead of a login GUI, I saw two white flashes, and then a blinking cursor. Please let me know if more information is required.

journalctl: http://0x0.st/oFWQ.txt

I found this in the journal:

kernel: nvidia: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel

and this

Do these lines mean something?

Thanks in advance.

Update: I tried using multi user target and executing gnome-shell --wayland, I was able to log in with Nvidia proprietary drivers, but there are some graphical glitches.

This smells like some GL library mixup, but I can't really see why it would happen

Re: Stuck at blinking cursor, Nvidia drivers

__GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia

Why is that there? You don't seem to have a hybrid graphics system?

Edit:

Update: I tried using multi user target and executing gnome-shell --wayland

Running xorg on gnome from the multi-user.target (no GDM) does also not work?
What about eg. openbox?

Re: Stuck at blinking cursor, Nvidia drivers

Yes that’s true, I don’t have a hybrid graphics system, I don’t know why is that there, maybe something I changed while following this (top comment) tutorial (I ended up switching to wayland), and also I think i didn’t word it correctly, sorry, english is not my first language, running gnome on wayland from multi user target works, but I didn’t try xorg. I’ll update this post when I get back home and try running it on xorg.

Yeah, there're no notifications for edits, sorry.

On topic:
Please post the Xorg log after such failure (~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log)
In general please avoid posting images of text (see the 1st link below on how to paste text from the console) and if you're sending them, it would be nice if they were not rotated wink

Re: Stuck at blinking cursor, Nvidia drivers

Nope. (I had hoped nvidia-open would show up)
Since you're booting the regular kernel, you could try nvidia instead of nvidia-dkms - and make sure to remove the __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME export.

Re: Stuck at blinking cursor, Nvidia drivers

The problem magically fixed itself, I have no clue what I did. Now I'm having another issue, I can't use Wayland when booting into graphical target. There isn't an option to use Wayland under the settings button on the login screen, but "gnome-shell --wayland" works just fine.
Edit: I fixed the problem by editing the 61-gdm.rules file, but sometimes Wayland sessions crash for no reason.
