Manjaro XFCE doesn't boot after update

I used stevenfalco's command to fix it.

Namely:

pacman -Suy mesa-git

and answered y to the prompt to remove mesa as shown here:

[x@x ~]$ sudo pacman -Suy mesa-git

Thanks for the help!

Now that "stable mesa" has been fixed, you might want to switch from the mesa-git back to stable mesa:

pacman -Suy mesa

The above command will replace mesa-git with mesa 19.3.2-2 (or later).

Thanks.

I also noticed that there are optional dependencies for Mesa which are described as "for accelerated video playback" namely mesa-vdpau and libva-mesa-driver.

Does it make sense to install them on RPi4?

Thanks for the reminder @stevenfalco and for your original fix :slight_smile:
