I am running sddm-0.18.1-r1 on my amd64 system.

My problem is (at least) that sddm fails to start on my system. The system boots up into terminal mode. when I log in as root and try to start sddm. I get the error message "Aborted." If I do a startx, the X environment starts up and appears to function.

I am suspicious that the cause may be related to errors that show up in dmesg regarding files that appear not to log correctly on startup but seem to be functioning when the system is running. I was chasing this problem when I went on vacation and the complaint expired. Anyway the "dmesg" tabulation follows:

You have a nvidia card then is possible related at this bug (I had the similar problem)?

My system dual boots Mint 19.2 and as a result, configuring grub2 is an exercise.

I believe I implemented the patches correctly, but sddm still doesn't start.
