Modesetting X log
Well weird bug. Setting modeset=1 for nvidia-drm causes the gnome-session to immediately exit on X11. The bug is weird because if you boot without modesetting and then reload module with modesetting from Wayland session, and then login to X11 session, everything works fine. But if modesetting is enabled during boot, you can't login to X11 session, as after 1/2 a sec. of entering the password the screen goes black for a moment and you are back on login screen. But now login to Wayland, reload module without modesetting and log back in using X11, you can get in. I tried looking through Xorg.0.log of both crashed and working sessions, both are similar, no discrepancies in either.
