I tested this and it didn't work. The kmod is installed successfully but sddm does not start.

Do you know how the kernel module is supposed to get loaded?

I'm guessing that the kernel tries at boot but the module doesn't get built and installed until after the kernel is loaded so the module just isn't there in time.

The more I think about it the more useless the startup script seems to be, the shutdown one should catch this situation and then the module should be available on reboot... I need to think about this some more.

Do you also have the shutdown service enabled?
