I learned something today

Good morning

So this morning I had a totally new experience, because my system booted to terminal (tty1) and not to my usual DE. I was half way through writing a thread about it when I suddenly remembered that I uninstalled gdm-prime because it has been flagged as out of date. Running Nvidia 450xx with prime, I thought for a second that prime was implemented into the driver, and because I didn’t reboot after the uninstallment, I didn’t notice any difference.
But boy-oh-boy was I surprised this morning! Fortunately I had yay installed and yay -S gdm-prime and a reboot got the DE working again.
This taught me not to be messing with graphical packages, even if they have been flagged out of date :laughing:

(Was going to put this into “General discussion” but didn’t find it in the drop down menu)


You always gonna learn something good from bad experiences!!!



At least you remembered what you had done, and then reinstalled the gdm-prime. Most people do not bother to undo, what changes they make, less write down the changes they make. :crazy_face:


Yeah, I usually don’t write down my changes since Manjaro has been super stable for me. Much less of a hassle than Ubuntu and POP OS.
My heart did however take extra jump :laughing:

Nope. The closest is #member-hub for TL2+. Really a post like this would fit better on Reddit.

Moved from #site-feedback to #support:Graphic-Cards so at least someone might see the post looking for help with pesky NVIDIA drivers

No problem.

I never use Reddit, don’t know why, just don’t.
