I’m not new to Linux and NixOS but I never faced graphical issues and this part of my system is completely unknown to me.
Before upgrading, I used:
- Linux 5.10.52
- Nvidia drivers with
services.xserver.videoDrivers = [ "nvidia" ];
Because I’m using Steam, I also set up this graphical-related options:
hardware.opengl.extraPackages32 = with pkgs.pkgsi686Linux; [ libva ];
hardware.pulseaudio.support32Bit = true;
nixos-rebuild switch --upgrade, Linux kernel version changed to 5.10.62 and nvidia drivers recompiled.
I noticed I couldn’t launch Alacritty (which is OpenGL-based) anymore, so I rebooted, assuming booting on new kernel would solve the issue.
But after boot I was stuck on a black screen. System was behaving normally and the X server seemed to run, as my shortcuts to launch Clementine and play some music worked, but the screen seemed off.
I blindly launched a terminal and captured
dmesg output, but I don’t know what to do with it.
I rebooted on the previous system version, but I’m stucked on this version.
Do you have any thoughts?
