Unable to boot to X server after last update

I just upgraded my Manjaro KDE to latest version, but I can not boot to desktop anymore, display server can’t be started.

I switched to tty and this is what journalctl gives me:


Maybe it’s worth mentioning that during the upgrade process I wasn’t able to select dbus broker - dialog was empty.

This is my hardware info:

Any help will be appreciated.


Moderator edit: Useless photo removed, post logs instead next time

In your graphics section of inxi, I see this (not sure if it’s related to what you said about dbus-broker):

Obviously a problem. You probably need to reinstall your graphic driver.

Yea, I saw that but I thought it’s because display server is not started and drivers are not loaded.

Ha! Reinstalling nvidia driver helped!

Thanks a lot. I owe you beer for this :smile:
