Again I get those messages, too:
Code:
systemd[1]: Failed to initialize automounter: No such file or directory
systemd[1]: Unit sys-kernel-security.automount entered failed state.
systemd[1]: Failed to initialize automounter: No such file or directory
systemd[1]: Unit sys-kernel-debug.automount entered failed state.

And everything gets mounted!

Your problem should be this:
Code:
systemd[1]: lvm.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1
systemd[1]: Unit lvm.service entered failed state.
/etc/init.d/lvm[1419]: WARNING: lvm has already been started

Seems like sysv or sth. already started lvm and now systemd can't take control.

Have you tried this, 'cause it should be a fix for the same error message you get:
http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Systemd#Fixup_OpenRC_services

When you compile with "-sysv" you don't have to emerge -C openrc. By using init=/bin/systemd the kernel won't use openrc! So you can have both installed and switch between them using grub ;)

Code:

systemctl enable openrc-init.service
Unit files contain no applicable installation information. Ignoring.

Yep, it's not working. At least on Gentoo. But I'll try to fix it, maybe I have more luck.
Thank you!

Thanks for SMB service =)

I have now 2 other issues!

First: cups. In all systemd reviews etc. there's ALWAYS an example with cups. But I can't find any cups.service :( Is it somewhere hidden or is it simply non-existant ?

Second: Something like /etc/init.d/local (or /etc/init.d/local.start) is missing for me. I need to undervolt my notebook at every start (saves some battery and more important: It won't overheat after one hour of compiling).
Does something like that exist? Or have I to write my own service ?

A simple cups.service can be found on the wiki: http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Systemd

I use something like this for my local startup scripts:

/etc/systemd/system/local.service:
Code:


[Unit]
Description=local_misc
DefaultDependencies=false

[Service]
Type=oneshot
RemainAfterExit=yes
ExecStart=/etc/systemd/scripts/local

[Install]
WantedBy=sysinit.target


/etc/systemd/scripts/local:
Code:

#!/bin/sh

echo "1" > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
echo "auto" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile

chmod 0777 /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu
echo "/sbin/rm_cgroup" > /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu/release_agent

/usr/sbin/edac-ctl --register-labels
echo "1" > /sys/module/edac_core/parameters/edac_mc_panic_on_ue

exit 0

Does this have to do anything with systemd ?

No, it's part of Lennart's alternative auto cpu cgroup approach (which is faster
than the in-kernel CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP according to my measurements
some time ago):

systemd is making progress :)
seem's like they tagged v17!

I wonder if systemd will still get faster or (from now on) it still gets fatter and slower?
Or (the question other way round): Are there still features missing that could/will speed up the boot process?

Is that all that's needed from the file /usr/local/sbin/cgroup_start from the wiki article you linked when using systemd, together with /usr/local/sbin/cgroup_clean? Is the ~/.bashrc part obsolete with systemd?

You still need the .bashrc part. And yes, the two methods bite each other.
So you either use CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP or the .bashrc thing.

systemd 18 is out and works nicely for me, only NetworkManager keeps crashing during shutdown. I wonder if this happens for others, too?

Hey guys!

I've got new things to do with systemd: splashscreen!

There are several questions:
1. Which system should one prefer for splashscreen experience (last time I set it up war 3-4 years ago) ?
2. Is there a built-in system in systemd or sth. planned?


Thanks

Does anyone know how to run systemd with plymouth?
I want to install systemd to my girlfriends laptop, but you know: Female computers NEED a fancy boot experience ;)

What I did so far:
plymouth with openrc is running fine! (just a 2 sec prompt before X is there, but that's ok)
I've tried the same setup with systemd on my notebook. There's something wrong.
"systemctl --all | grep ply" gives me some service that failed...

I don't know what the service does, where exactly it belongs and why it fails. How can I retrieve an error message?

Hi,
systemd is fantastic but I 've got a problem after gdm-3.0.0 starts.

With openrc/baselayout I see my username and normally logins entering my password.

When I try systemd there's no username in list.
I choose "other" then type username and password but gdm-session does not start.
I can't cancel running operation, so I have to kill gdm.

I'll try to enable syslog-ng and see what happends while I try to login.

Are there any pam problems with systemd or other?
Does anyone have this problem??

You probably want ebuilds for services which are used with gnome3
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=318365 comments #154 to #157
I've added them to my local overlay with needed patches from normal gnome3 and systemd ebuilds and it worked

However there seems to be added gnome3 branch http://git.overlays.gentoo.org/gitweb/?p=user/systemd.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/gnome3 so it is probably better if you use it, there is also a comment #158 which suggests problems without accounts-daemon.service

I have no problems running gnome 3 using only systemd services, except occasionally on shutdown, there seems to be unmounted device, and it timeouts before halting

I had 2 problems:


  • The system did not boot as /bin/systemd used /usr/lib/libdbus.so.<ABI> and I have separated /usr
  • The system fail to fsck.ext2 of root filesystem which is on LVM as it does not fine device.


The first one was fixed by quick'n'dirty copy to /lib. I don't know how to fix the second one - I found advice to update to newest LVM but I have ~amd64 so I should already have it. I have specified volumes by UUID and it correctly fould the /dev path to it.

I'm using systemd-27-r1 and systemd-units-9999 from the systemd overlay. My computer boots with systemd, loads kdm, then OpenBox (or presumably whichever W.M./D.E. one chooses). I have a few problems, though:

1. I have no network connection. I can't ping www.google.com, load websites, et cetera.
2. I can start programs in OpenBox, but if I try to use su and type the password correctly, it never goes to the new prompt; it just stays blank until I press ctrl+c. Likewise, if I press ctrl+alt+f1 (or f2, et cetera), it lets me tpe the username and password, and tells the last login time, but never runs bash or loads the prompt.
3. I can't turn off the computer properly. I'd provide a log of this, but I don't know where to find it. I'd like to say that I see no significant errors, but I'm not sure. I know that this is vague, but maybe it will help.

Here is my dmesg:

Code:
[    4.723001][    6.585562] <29>systemd[1]: hald.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=203

[    9.022751] <28>systemd[1]: metalog.service start request repeated too quickly, refusing to start.


I might just go through the whole Gentoo SystemD guide. Fortunately, I can boot using openrc.

Edit: It is mostly fixed:

1. I corrected the kernel path and root partition in /etc/systemd/scripts/kexec_load.
2. I am not sure whether this is correct, but I added this line to /etc/systemd/system/lvm.service:
Code:
ExecStart=/usr/local/sbin/cgroup_start

3. I changed network.service, making these two lines instead of the previous ones:
Code:
ExecStart=/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up
ExecStart=/sbin/dhcpcd eth0


Now the computer seems to boot fine, though it's a bit slower than I was hoping (OpenBox loads completely in 25 seconds, counting from the GRUB screen). I haven't tried shutting it down yet, though.

Revert that and do 'systemctl enable dhcpcd.service'
