I love it, I love it, I love it! Allan, you know, owns Arch.
pamac is upgrading some apps to version 43, including Console and GDM. Console will not launch on shell 42.5 and I am afraid if I restart I will not be able to log in with GDM 43.
I would be afraid of not being able to login after restart also, if I was using Pamac to upgrade packages.
For updating your packages, it is best to run:
garuda-update is offering the same packages...
Packages (5) fontconfig-2:2.14.1-2 gdm-43.0-1 lib32-fontconfig-2:2.14.1-2 libgdm-43.0-1
Total Download Size: 2.00 MiB
Total Installed Size: 24.35 MiB
Net Upgrade Size: 0.33 MiB
As you can see gdm is being upgraded to version 43.
Still, I wouldn't worry about it since GDM starts after Grub. Take the update, reboot, and if you run into any problems just restore the pre-upgrade snapshot.
Computer rebooted just fine, only "issue", console or blackbox don't launch, I guesss I have to wait until gnome-shell is upgraded to version 43.
Nobody's forcing you to use GNOME, right? If that is true, then the torture is self-inflicted. If it is false, then you need to kick that horses' arse in the dick and go with a different DE/WM.
I feel f or you. I got tired of it a dozen or so iterations ago. I mean, there's just so much pain a person can take on a regular six-month basis. After a certain point, the thought of updates makes one cringe.
LOL, no comments
Just got the update for Gnome, but gdm won't show up on boot.
If you have already updated, boot to a previous snapshot and set
/etc/gdm/custom.conf in the after-update snapshot by:
sudo nano /.snapshots/17/snapshot/etc/gdm/custom.conf
replace 17 with your snapshot number from the btrfs assistant.
before writing to the snapshot(which is read-only by default) you would have make it writable:
sudo btrfs property set -ts /.snapshots/17/snapshot ro false
after editing the
/etc/gdm/custom.conf in the snapshot, make it read-only( though not necessary):
sudo btrfs property set -ts /.snapshots/17/snapshot ro true
Now boot to the updated snapshot.
Is that a Nvidia-based issue or global? When I started trying out GNOME 43, after i noticed it rolling in, I had literally, out of the box, no issues on AMD RX or Intel UHD. I'd heard at least one other did, but beyond that, I've not heard/seen issues, in fact, Gnome's fixed quite a few of the issues I was having with 42 relating to multi-monitor and DisplayPort that I could finally go back to Gnome from having a hiatus to XFCE for a bit.
And FYI, I block reddit, so links from reddit I can never read. I find their content to be... Not worth the wasted time weeding through the weeds.
I agree, there is so much garbage to sift through it always makes me cringe when it's a top hit for something I'm searching.
Not to drag the thread off-topic, but the Garuda Teddit instance is awesome for turning down the noise for the occasional visit, and takes drop-in URL replacement (change "
www.reddit.com" to "
teddit.garudalinux.com", and leave the rest of the URL as-is).
So in this case:
It doesn't stop Reddit from being a dumpster fire of bad information, but it's a much more tolerable interface.
The issue still exists if I remove the workaround:
So it's a Wayland-issue.
Do you use Wayland on Gnome itself? Does that work?
nope, I had both of them.
But I don't think it will work by using Wayland only, removing Xorg.
Okay, but do you have an Nvidia GPU? I see no garuda-inxi to work with here.
Here's my inxi, thank you for your help!

maybe an amd equivalent of
intel-media-driver may work?
I'm not sure where you're getting the idea you're using anything Intel here, because you're not. AMD CPU, AMD Vega GPU built-in to the CPU.
I'm using an AMD RX 6700 XT with my desktop, and GDM is working in Wayland, but I don't use Wayland actual for my session. Xorg is what I use still due to compatability with things I use still doesn't work with Wayand yet. That said though, I tested it with Wayland and it works fine on amd and intel GPUs.
A log of gdm might be useful to help figure out what's going on if it's not working.
The new gnome 43.1 update has fixed the issue for me too!
Thanks for your time and help!
