I just installed GNOME without systemd

The emerge process went great everything worked.

I set my display manager in xdm to gdm

But when I type openrc to boot GNOME nothing happens.

It just moves me to the next line.

Any help would be appreciated

Remember, this configuration is unsupported, and support requests should be in the unsupported forum.

Are you using https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1022050.html as a guide and using dantrell's overlay?

What are you using exactly to start gdm??

Using
# /etc/init.d/xdm start

or
# service xdm start

?

Have you tested X11 to make sure it works by itself? If you ran startx or xinit, do they work at least?

I ran startx and it worked.

However openrc still fails to boot GNOME

Yes I did follow dantrell's GNOME instructions

Is gdm running actually running or is openrc confused?

ps -ax|grep gdm

If it's not actually running,

/etc/init.d/xdm zap

What if you restart it?

/etc/init.d/xdm restart

I am only giving guesses based on trying to getting other display managers working under openrc, but I've never tried running Gnome under OpenRC (all my Gnome3 boxes are systemd.)

[Thanks Neddy for moving topic]
