I have successfully installed Gentoo on my system with Plasma 5 and using Systemd as init system (as I'm coming from arch linux, and am more familiar with Systemd).

After installing everything I did the usual: systemctl enable sddm. Command runs and symlink is successfully created.

But after the restart, SDDM won't launch -- it simply hangs at "Reached target Graphical Interface" and stops there.

I know I must be doing a mistake somewhere...

Will I have better luck using OpenRC instead of Systemd?

My system is a Core i5-7400 with a Radeon RX 570 GPU. Xf86-video-amdgpu, xorg-server and wayland are all installed.

Hi WillianRLD,

Can you log in if you switch to a different tty (e.g. Ctrl+Alt+F2)? If so, first step would be to check systemctl status sddm

Have you tried starting X without SDDM on your new install?

Hi
In /etc/conf.d/xdm enter:
DISPLAYMANAGER="sddm"
Also set the default target(runlevel) to graphical:
systemctl set-default graphical.target

/etc/conf.d/xdm is an openrc config file to control what the xdm service (that you'd still have to enable seperately) starts.
For systemd you need to enable/start the service of your display manager directly, eg
Code:
systemctl enable --now sddm
to start sddm now, as well as automatically start it in the future
