Following the guide: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Systemd/Installing_Gnome3_from_scratch

I am able to compile the kernel. However, it is impossible to continue after that, because I am chrooted in from my Arch Linux installation, and therefore cannot perform the command:

Code:
$ localectl list-keymaps
System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate.
Failed to create bus connection: Host is down


Actually, it is impossible to perform any systemd commands because I am chrooted...

Am I doing something wrong here?

If the host where you are installing gentoo in chroot (meaning your arch linux) has systemd enabled, you can get away with just mounting mount -o bind /run /mnt/gentoo/run and it will work. If not, you will have to boot your new gentoo distro one way or another. Personally I would just make a VM with it and continue to install inside the VM.

Thanks Axl, I am working on this now.

It seems quite difficult to install Gnome with systemd, and likewise, without systemd(https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/GNOME/GNOME_Without_systemd). Is there a more preferred desktop environment for Gentoo?
