After update MESA 23.1.0 sddm was just a white screen. [Solved]

After updating to MESA 23.1.0  Instead of the usual screen to login I get just White screen.  I am running KDE Plasma and sddm.
I could change to another virtual terminal
Workaround was to downgrade to previous version of MESA.

GPU is Radeon R5.

That suggests something may be wrong in your graphics setup .

Please post lspci -k output , the contents of  /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and any files in /etc/sddm.conf.d/ folder .

I also hit an issue after updating Mesa to 23.1.0. For me the gnome login screen was garbled and unreadable. I could still get to a virtual terminal and the text was thankfully readable so I could downgrade. After downgrading to 23.0.3 all works as expected.

My setup also uses the radeon driver.

I reinstalled mesa 23.1.0 long enough to run

Did you see the other thread and try the behavior w/ amdgpu instead of radeon?

@gps1539 that's a Sothern Island chip (I know that because I'm an expert in geography!) so you'd need "si_support" instead of "cik_support" to try the amdgpu module.

Same here!

I was lucky to have the older mesa package in my cache, so I manually reinstalled it and rebooted.

In my case it's a screen corruption, affecting Sway, SDDM, GDM...
It breaks both Wayland and X.
So the problem is MESA itself.

I use the latest github kernel, and also tried the linux-zen package.

As I too, am an expert on geography, did you also try switching your Sea Islands card to amdgpu via

radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1

on the kernel parameters: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/AMDGPU … K)_support ?

And the solution is in [extra-testing] mesa 23.1.1-1  ... which works.

You can wait for it to go live, or just "downgrade"  where mesa 23.1.1-1 shows up as the last
option on the list and "remote".

I changed to the amdgpu. It seems to work. I'm not sure yet if there are any consequences.  i guess If I have any problems I can downgrade mesa again and the new one will be put soon.

Thanks.

I guess I am supposed to add Solved to the Subject. I'm not sure how to do that.

Edit first post in the thread, that will allow you to edit the title and prepend [Solved] to it.
(there's a charcter limit, you may have to reword the title to shorten it)
