I also zypper dup’d the mesa problem the other day and just as quickly solved the problem by rolling back with snapper and removing ~.cache and /var/lib/sddm/.cache directories. Then this morning I started up and did my usual zypper dup and received the following…
zdup [sudo] password for root: Warning: You are about to do a distribution upgrade with all enabled repositories. Make sure these repositories are compatible before you continue. See 'man zypper' for more information about this command. Loading repository data... Reading installed packages... Computing distribution upgrade... The following 11 packages are going to be downgraded: libgbm1 libvdpau_nouveau libwayland-egl1 Mesa Mesa-dri Mesa-dri-nouveau Mesa-gallium Mesa-libEGL1 Mesa-libGL1 Mesa-libglapi0 Mesa-libva 11 packages to downgrade. Overall download size: 19.3 MiB. Already cached: 0 B. After the operation, 9.6 MiB will be freed. Continue? [y/n/...? shows all options] (y):
So thinking that this was just another update for the Mesa packages I went ahead and after reboot SDDM was broken again. I recovered again by snapper rollback and removing ~/.cache and /var/lib/sddm/.cache again…
I’m just a little concerned that this isn’t fully resolved and will arise again the next time I zypper dup?
Here are my repos
