Installed in what context? Upgrade from 5 to 6, or fresh 6? I saw a lot of
trouble on Mageia dev and user mailing lists in pre-release testing of upgrades.
If upgrade, fresh might turn out to be your expedient solution.

I have 4 TDE on Mageia PCs, but ATM I have no recollection which have upgrades
from 5 to 6 or even have TDE instead of KDE5. What I can say for sure ATM is:

1-I don't have gdm, sddm or lightdm installed on any of them. All have either
TDM or KDM4.

2-None of my PCs have or ever had an NVidia proprietary Linux driver installed.

Maybe a search for NVidia in the Mageia mailing list archives would turn up a clue?

The mga6 Xorg server version has the modesetting driver incorporated, moved from
being a separate driver package as of 1.17.x. Eradicating NVidia and
x11-driver-video-nouveau (and remembering to get nomodeset off the kernel
cmdline) to let it be used might be worth trying.
