Description walter.bishop 2018-12-05 13:38:21 UTC
Since a few weeks I'm using Lord Heavys https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/unofficial_user_repositories#mesa-git repo, to be able to play Dying Light on Arch.

As of November 30th, the repo broke my DE (Cinnamon). SDDM worked, although the user icon was missing. After login cinnamon is stuck in a restart loop. Downgrading mesa-git, llvm-libs-svn and llvm-svn fixed the problem.

Affected versions on my side are

mesa-git-105999.89b4798c06-1 mesa-git-106052.95d62baac5-1

llvm-libs-svn-347971-1 llvm-libs-svn-348278-1

llvm-svn-347971-1-x86_64 llvm-svn-348278-1

This is my first bug report for mesa, so I don't know what other information you might need. The few lines before are from the journal, that I thought might be of importance. I'm not even sure whether I chose the right driver. (It might also be radeonsi? Thought that was deprecated.) Let me know if you need some more information.

Cinnamon 4.0.3
SDDM 0.18.0

Since there are no other bug reports I assume the issue has now been fixed?
Comment 2 walter.bishop 2019-05-06 18:55:23 UTC
Yes, since 19.0 is live the problem is gone. Thx.
