Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2022-05-26 11:00:58 UTC
If I enable autologin, gdm will fail to start at boot (also the system will be unusable as systemd will keep restarting it and failing forever :S

The failing start is due to this error when trying to start my X session:
(EE) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Failed to acquire modesetting permission

But that error only happens at boot time, if I disable gdm.service and later start it with systemctl start gdm it works fine. Also works fine if I disable autologin

I wondered if maybe we should do like Arch and package a snapshot including the round of fixes they added for nvidia setups:
https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-packages/commit/77ec4e9ec48153390756c5b7659f6072091a5221
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gdm/-/commits/main

I wonder why upstream didn't open a 42.0 branch :/
