Happy new year Mark!

My work desktop is running chimaera with just Xorg, elogind, and openbox via startx without any display manager or login manager. It also has a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

I am willing to be a guinea pig here if it’s possible to test and revert without breaking my system in a bad way? Do you have a link to a list of steps required to test this seatd feature?

Should I be taking a clonezilla backup before doing any of this testing on my primary work desktop?
