I'm using Manjaro (kernel version 5.2.8-1, stable branch, originally got from the 18.1.0-rc5 iso). I'm KDE but I believe this is irrelevant since this issue prevents me from booting into a Graphical interface (so, well before KDE kicks in).
I'm on a desktop PC, so there's only 1 graphic card (RTX 2080Ti).
Everything has been working great up to now; this morning I updated my system as requested and, after rebooting, the system doesn't boot anymore into the UI (so, I can't fire up any DE).
The issue seems to be related to the latest NVIDIA drivers. At boot I see a message saying that:
systemd-modules-load.service failed to start.
The service is indeed stopped.
sudo journalctl -u systemd-modules-load.service I can see the following:
Failed to find module 'nvidia' Failed to find module 'nvidia-drm' Failed to find module 'vboxsf' Failed to find module 'vboxdrv' Failed to find module 'vboxpci' Failed to find module 'vboxnetadp' Failed to find module 'vboxnetflt'
I'm not sure of what exactly happened here. I've been using the stock system from the original ISO install "as is", without changing anything (I didn't install any custom kernel or particular drivers on my own). I've been just regularly updating the system through pacman as updates where coming in, so everything should be the result of the regular stable distribution going through the tested rolling updates.
It seems pretty clear that the issue is in the NVIDA drivers (that just got updated to the latest version 430.40-1).
Can anyone here help me figure out what the correct path to solve this issue is?
Thanks in advance!
