Why gdm don’t start? I have installed Gnome 3.24 and systemd, but gdm don’t start. Gnome start with xinitrc only.

At boot appears the login, but does not gdm.

Did you start/enable GDM service?

I'm having the exact same problem. Not logs, no output, just caret flicker for some while. After that I can log in and use startx to fire up gnome. I'm using radeon driver. After login, systemctl status gdm reports it running, ps aux | grep gdm also reports a running process. Tried to re-emerge gnome, no luck.Tried to fire it up manually using /usr/sbin/gdm, just hangs there and does nothing. Lightdm works fine, but I would prefer gdm.

EDIT
Also seems related https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1089074-highlight-gdm.html , though masking the version did not help.

.xinitrc presence can mess up GNOME and other non-basic desktop environments pretty good - don't have it present for GNOME.
You can start GNOME with other login managers. If you want to use startx, then you should just set XSESSION environment variable to Gnome (XSESSION=Gnome), not make an .xinitrc.
For GDM debugging would need to see the relevant logs. There were curious cases of some directories /var/lib/gdm become root owned for some reason, and then Xorg log file not being writable and it exiting, so gdm-3.30.3-r3 adds back a workaround for that and may help.
