Since yesterday, I cannot log in with my XFCE DE.
I suspect it has to do with my packages update I did on Saturday night.
The problem is that the login manager (lightdm) launches to the screen with my username to select, and when I select it and enter my password, it just loops back to the page with with my username.
I can see from journalctl that the “X” process is failing with “dumped core”.
( output of
journalctl -b -e : https://pastebin.com/PrNhGgZz )
I tried to shut down the lightdm service, go to a tty and launch “startxfce4” manually.
I get the same error ( I assume, it’s seg fault here but I think it’s the same )

I tried installing the nvidia drivers, but couldn’t start ( I think my GPU is too old for 340.xx or something. I have a GeForce 9600GT )
I went back to nouveau and tried “Xorg -configure” to get a default xorg.conf.
I don’t know if the GPU is the problem, or my xorg conf.
Any ideas on how to debug this?
