Hello,
long story short, i cannot boot anymore.
after installing (and bugfixing a lot) ive managed to get my base system set, as a next step i then switched to systemd and installed kde (and about 400 dependancies, kde didnt statt tho), then after rebooting it gets stuck on boot, and unfortunately i dont know why, but i have some ideas and also a pic of the kernel booting, without obvious errors....

this is my screen on boot (at the moment where its stuck): http://m.imgur.com/KcDBM8n
my theory is that i cant boot because of the graphics driver are modules and systemd cant load them (dont know why)

thanks for any help!

Does <ctrl><alt><F1> give you a login prompt?

Login as root
Check the output of the following commands for errors.
Code:
systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service
journalctl -xb

why do you use systemd on a kde installation at all? BAsically it should work but the forum is full with systemd related forum requests.

Personal opinion: If you do not intend to use gnome desctop switch over to openrc or something more proven as systemd (highly unstable / buggy / lots of issues on this forum)

Thanks for the reply!
no, unfortunately this doesnt give me a login prompt, thus i chrootet into the hdd via a livedisc, but systemclt gives me: "running in chroot" ignoring request... :( can i just load radeon in kernel itself instead of as a module? i think this could cause a framebuffer conflict again...

You will find many strong opinions about systemd, both in favor and opposed. You will likely also find that, due to its extensive mission creep, users who do not wish to deal with it will be entirely unable to help you, because it is so alien. Users who embrace systemd may be able to help you when the problem is specific to systemd.
