[Bug 1543458] Re: Xorg crash prevents login


The "Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0"" message suggests
it's indeed a problem with the GPU. I found that it could be caused by
bugs with nvidia drivers. This could be the case, as mine it's an
optimus laptop with NVIDIA GTX 850m.

Bug description:
  After a recent update, it's no more possible to log in to Ubuntu 16.04
  trough lightdm with Unity.

  I'm attaching .xsession-errors hoping it can be useful.

  I'm reporting this from another partition with Trusty, because I did'n
  know how to report without any GUI. I'm willing to add details if
  anyone helps me on how to send them from the CLI.
