Good evening,

since yesterday my Gnome Shell crashes at start with the following
message in the log:
gnome-session-f[1207]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f01adab3cc9 sp
00007ffd261ce930 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.2200.6[7f01ad7d1000+6fa000]

Is this a problem other Gnome users see as well?

I experience the same issue – happend some days ago already – and could
only resolve it by “resetting” the complete dconf configuration
(deleting folder ~/.config/dconf). I guess it is not necessary to delete
all dconf configuration settings but I couldn’t figure out which one is
the culprit. Maybe it is only a certain setting or an extension.

However the Gnome shell still seems very instable and crashes when e. g.
searching the dasboard for certain terms.

It would be good to get to the root of these problems

Not sure if related.

My KDE session completely died twice in as many days. Which leads me back to
the login prompt.

Have you installed infinality fonts? They have incompatibility
with harfbuzz and broke several packages.

See here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Infinality the banner and

Gnome on Wayland was very unstable here. Switching back to gnome on X11
solved the problem. No more crash since.

I have an unstable session on both X11 and Wayland since libharfbuzz was
updated. I'm not saying that it is the problem, just that since that day my
box is unstable.

I had a notebook that is not updated since about two weeks and is stable on
both X11 and Wayland sessions.

I am planning for today to finish a fresh Arch installation (trying out
Arch again after a few years. I have 'always' been using Ubuntu)

Reading this I wonder whether I should install X11 or Wayland

Did you guys manage to get Gnome working again. I was hoping for the
ugrade to 3.24 but that didn't change anything:-O
Here even GDM crashes. So is this some general issue with Gnome on
Arch?
