So here's what happened, I was facing issue with proprietary nVidia driver (screen tearing) so I thought I want to switch to the free one, so I uninstalled nvidia with "pacman -Rs nvidia" , then I thought might as well try a different kernel and installed zen. Now when I boot into either kernel I am seeing "Starting display manager" then a black screen. I can login to tty2 , but no display comes up.

I want to switch back to free driver, with preferably zen kernel. What should I do? Thanks in advance.
