Booting problems after installing Xanmod kernel on Arch Linux

Hi everyone, today after installing the xanmod kernel on my Arch Linux system (with the right headers ofc), I got a little problem... I can boot up my system (I can access the tty and it works perfectly) but I can't even reach the login manager or my DE (so no graphics).

Has anyone had this problem before?

I haven't seen anything similar to this on the net, so I think that I might have installed it in a non-proper way.
That's what I did:
1.Installed xanmod w/xanmod-headers through makepkg and sudo pacman -U ...
2.Edited my bootctl config with nano (I just added -xanmod to vmlinuz-linux)
3.Booted up the system

Any ideas? Thx in advance

P.S. In case you would need any log files or clarifications on what I did ask me Big Grin

See if the linux-firmware package is installed, essential for linux 5.1.

Yeah, it's already installed

Send here the /var/log/kern.log as an attachment and 'glxinfo | grep -i opengl'.

Hi, I just checked and sadly I didn't find any /var/log/kern.log

The command glxinfo | grep -i opengl gives me this output:
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation

P.S. Sorry for answering late

Try to create and send the dmesg file in home directory:
'dmesg > ~/dmesg.log'

Thank you!
To fix the problem I just had to install the nvidia-dkms package and then reboot.
