I recently upgraded my Arch system to kernel 4.9.8. Upon reboot, I am unable to isolate the graphical target.
dmesg gives me this:
[ 54.537319] gnome-shell: segfault at 44 ip 00007f312c42b311 sp 00007ffc7c141a10 error 4 in libmutter.so.0.0.0[7f312c355000+12c000] [ 56.011442] NVRM: Your system is not currently configured to drive a VGA console [ 56.011443] NVRM: on the primary VGA device.

It looks like there are a few things that could be casuing the issue, but I think fixing the root cause, whatever it is, will fix the other issues. I have tried to Xorg in other ways, including with
startx and starting the
gdm service. I know segfaults generally can not be fixed by the user, but I wanted to get a second opinion on this and see of anyone else if having the same issues. Thanks!
