Naah, Nvidia drivers here. I know sometimes Gnome is a little... Crashy. But I do like it better than other interfaces.

Just in case someone runs into gnome segfaults with gtk and happens to read this thread, segfault is the following:


Code:
gnome-session-f[630]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f31c1990599 sp 00007ffd2ae756a0 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.2200.3[7f31c16ae000+6f3000]
Apparently gnome on Wayland is unaffected, but the recent update (Nov. 10 2016) breaks gnome on Xorg. The problem looks like it is this one affecting some newer Intel GPUs and older Nvidia cards like mine (in my case Nvidia GeForce GT420):

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/5179...&string=mutter

Which can be worked around by downgrading mutter to this:

https://archive.archlinux.org/packag..._64.pkg.tar.xz

With this command:

Code:
pacman -U mutter-3.22.1+41+ge8fc090-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
And putting the mutter package on the ignore list in /etc/pacman.conf until a fixed package is put in the repo which will be hopefully soon.

Ok, with yesterday's upgrade the problem was solved.


So, ok, Arch will sometimes be broken by upgrades. But at least support is very quick and problems get (usually) solved.:-D
