Ever since D10623 landed I am unable to boot to the login screen. After the blinking white cursor there is just a black screen, and nothing visible happens. Switching to tty2 and logging in via the CLI works.
Steps to reproduce:
- Install xorg-server 1.20.10 release 70 (i.e. switch to Unstable repo and fully update)
- wait for the login screen
Observed result: Black screen
Expected result: Login screen appears
Boot log: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/mKc3bmtsWJ/
This machine is using gdm as display manager, but the Budgie Desktop is also installed (and default). Might be specific to this setup.
I have narrowed it down to this specific package update, because even with everything else fully updated the login screen appears.
DataDrake provided me with a list of packages that depend on xorg-server-devel and weren't rebuilt after the update, in the hope that rebuilding them might fix the issue. So far I have tried rebuilding mutter, the nvidia driver, xorg-driver-input-libinput, xorg-server itself and gdm for good measure, because those seemed like the more obvious choices, but no dice so far. During the rebuilds I had to add some new build deps for most of these, e.g. pkgconfig(pciaccess), pkgconfig(inputproto), and pkgconfig(xproto)
Just wanted to open this issue to keep record of everything and maybe find someone who has the same problem, or even a potential solution.
