This has nothing to do with sddm, it's Xorg crashing

i have no xorg.conf file if you are waiting for this, there is non. AFAIK the newer xorg can also be configured through xorg.conf.d

So it doesnt crash to login screen anymore, but the screen completely freezes.

Ok, I've done some further research and found this entry . If I try to login with those settings set, almost the whole screen is black and i can only see the cursor, tho it seems that everything loaded properly, since the cursor adapts its graphics according to the elements on screen from the previous session.
