Pinebook 1080p with Sway won't run after update

After update (2021-04-27 and 2021-05-09) Pinebook 1080p with Sway won’t start graphics mode. The manjaro splash screen with rotating dots is shown, then the dots stop and nothing happens.

I have asked in Sway github and they told me that it is due to wlroots rewrites and mali3d lima driver bug. There are 2 solutions to the problem.


  1. upgrade mesa to newest development drivers
    sudo pacman -Syu mesa-git


  1. downgrade sway & wlroots
    sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/wlroots-0.12.0-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/sway-1:1.5.1-2-aarch64.pgk.tar.xz
