Hi all, Like so many before me I'm caught in the KDE5 typhoon. Using a backup laptop I am querying the forum for help... When starting my system via xdm start it fails to start sddm stating
Code:

(II) HELPER [PAM] Ended.
(WW) DAEMON: Auth: sddm-helper exited with 6


This part does not work as expected, but starting a session via startx also produces an error. Via startx I can see the KDE cursor appear for a second or two before returning to a regular mouse pointer. It then produces 3 consecutive "Plasma closed unexpectedly" messages. The developer reports all show the same crash location. A raise/abort in libc is generated from a QMessageLogger::fatal. Higher in the stack trace are:
QSGRenederLoop::handleContextCreationFailure from libQt5Quick.so.5
?? from libQt5Quick.so.5
?? from libQt5Quick.so.5
QWindow:event from libQt5Gui.so.5

The rest of the callstack looks ligit.

I rebuilt the Qt5quick and Qt5Gui packages in case there was a mangled library. Any help out there for these two problems?
