awesome as my window manager with
sddm as the login manager.
I just upgraded to
nixos 22.11 and the upgrade completed without errors, after i added

However, when rebooting the system kind of logs in (i see the screen staying black but reacting to some kind of input in the background and the numlock on my keyboard is engaged for a short while) but after a few seconds i end up on the sddm screen. If i try to log in from there, the same thing happens e.g. there is something going on in the background (it doesn’t fail immediately) but eventually i’m thrown back to the sddm login screen.
To troubleshoot, i installed
xserver.xinit as a system package and entered the tty of
awesome: main:708: cannot open display (error 5).
startx awesome yields

Does anyone know a possible solution to this? I don’t know why it isn’t working anymore after the upgrade to nixos 22.11. I noticed that
systemd was upgraded to 251.7 and
nvidia to 520, but i don’t know if that can cause such a problem.
