I just ventured into the wild and made the jump to systemd-185, and that was a painful, PAINFUL experience.

LVM2 and Pulseaudio (with udev enabled) will not compile. Pulseaudio has a patch in the gentoo-zh overlay that fixes it, but I can't find one for LVM2. I'm just leaving udev disabled for now.

Bluez is irrecoverably broken. I cannot find a working overlay for it anywhere, and Gnome depends on it.

Xorg, VLC, gvfs, and consolekit will break, but can be rebuilt.

If anyone else made the foolish jump, post whatever broke for you here.

EDIT: Yay, now my machine won't even boot anymore!

Ok, first thing is that all you need to do is remove the /init/systemd line from your kernel parameters. That should restore your working init system. I recommend setting up a rescue kernel that boots the same as your normal kernel but using the standard init system if you want to keep experimenting with systemd. If you removed it, then use a rescue cd and put it back.

I tried systemd, but I found that it didn't do much differently. Nothing broke, but still. A slightly faster boot up isn't worth it in my opinion. Its got a few quirks and I like my startup scripts.

I think you can forcibly remove the blue tooth from gnome (I think I did it once) but I can't give directions because I don't remember how I did it. probably a use flag somewhere. If all else fails there is package.provided. Tacky, but effective. (If you don't use Bluetooth)

Apologies if I take a while to respond. I'm currently working on the dematerialization circuit for my blue box.

The reason my machine isn't booting anymore is because I removed udev from LVM. It can't find my volumes anymore. Once that's fixed, everything should be fine.

EDIT: I installed gnome-base/gnome, which has a hard dependency on gnome-core-apps with bluetooth enabled. I made my own ebuild, removing bluetooth, and that got rid of bluez.

Well, I created a LVM-2.02.96 ebuild with udev enabled. It compiled fine, but it still doesn't show the volumes.

When I do vgchange -a y, it says '2 logical volume(s) in volume group "system" now active'.

lvdisplay shows
Code:

--- Logical volume ---
  LV Path                /dev/system/home
  LV Name                home
  VG Name                system
  LV UUID                4QVScd-N3EM-H5ou-0XtS-G51c-Kw8A-ssqckE
  LV Write Access        read/write
  LV Creation host, time ,
  LV Status              available
  # open                 0
  LV Size                25.00 GiB
  Current LE             800
  Segments               1

  Read ahead sectors     auto

  Block device           253:0
   
  --- Logical volume ---

All the volumes are there, but /dev/system doesn't exist and /dev/mapper is empty.
