• Recent update - Can't login: Screen flashes between black and login prompt.

    Last night I ran pacman -Syyu and did a reboot. Now I can’t seem to login. It appears as if lightdm won’t load. My screen just cycles between a black screen and a terminal login prompt. I was able to login using single user mode and pull some log files. Maybe, someone can help because honestly I don’t even know where to start.


  • I was able to disable lightdm in single user mode. From there I tried startx but it would exit almost immediately. I figured it might be something with the nvidia driver. I found the following:

    I appended the following to the kernel line in /boot/grub/grub.cfg:

    video=vesa:off vga=normal

    This fixed my issue.
