Crashes and Bugs

Getting the log

If you are in a TTY, and the hyprland session that crashed was the last one you launched, the log will be printed with

cat /tmp/hypr/$(ls -t /tmp/hypr/ | head -n 1)/hyprland.log

feel free to save it to a file, save, copy, etc.

if you are in a Hyprland session, and you want the log of the last session, use

cat /tmp/hypr/$(ls -t /tmp/hypr/ | head -n 2 | tail -n 1)/hyprland.log

Crashes at launch

Diagnose the issue by what is in the log:

  • sWLRBackend was NULL! -> launch in the TTY and refer to the wlr logs in RED.
  • Monitor X has NO PREFERRED MODE, and an INVALID one was requested -> your monitor is bork.
  • Other -> see the coredump. Use coredumpctl, find the latest one’s PID and do coredumpctl info PID.
  • failing on a driver (e.g. radeon) -> try compiling with make legacyrenderer, if that doesn’t help, report an issue.
  • failing on wlr-xxx -> try compiling with make legacyrenderer, if that doesn’t help, report an issue, and also refer to the TTY wlr logs in RED like in the first point.
  • failing on Hyprland -> report an issue.
