Stuck on black screen after login

Hello, after the last update, every time I login, I end up on a black screen. As such, I have followed this tutorial.
The reflector command has given me only timeouts with the servers. Garuda-update updated two things called "imglib" but it did not change anything.
Running startx did not work, there were no (EE) lines. Instead I got:

dbus-update-activation-enviroment: error: unable to connect to D-Bus: Using X11 for dbus-daemon autolaunch was disabled at compile time, set your DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADRESS instead

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 51: twm: command not found

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 52: xclock: command not found

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 53:xterm: comand not found

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 55:exec:xterm: comand not found

Xinit: connection to X server lost

waiting for X server to shut down (11) Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file.

Finnally, running DKMS autoinstall did not output anything.
This is my garuda-inxi output.
Some stuff appears to be missing at the end. Here is what is missing:

Use last working snapshot, and post garuda-inxi.

I posted garuda-inxi, look at the last line, it's on termbin.

Thats not all, missing parts at the end. :slight_smile:

What exactly did you follow the Computer doesn’t boot, boots to a black screen, or stops at a message
Did you chroot , update and try free driver?
Seems nvidea problem

I didn't try to chroot, since I dont have the installation media with me. I tried updating with "garuda-update", it updated 2 packages. I rebooted and still had the problem. How do I switch to the free drivers?

and wait, maybe they fix the problems upstream.


Ty for the help!

Wait a few days and when you start the update, copy and post the log where the programs are listed that receive an update.
