Just completed the latest update - LightDM Won't Start on 5.10 Kernel

I’m running the latest version of XCFE. When I try to boot with Kernel 5.10, I get an error message that LightDM won’t start.

Everything works properly if I drop back to the 5.4 LTS Kernel.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

2 possibilities:

  • Stay with 5.4 and every now and then try out 5.10 again and see if it goes away because someone else filed a bug.
  • File a bug yourself and follow up on it.
