HI everybody.

I'm performing a new installation of Gentoo through stage 3 direct with SystemD.
I want to use Gnome 3.

But now as I start my system, I get a black screen right away.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Can somebody assist me to get to a functional console login?

I'm online 24 hours straight trying to figure this out and I couldn't so far.

Thanks in advance,

Rafael Umbelino

Check the logs of systemd, you can do that with `systemd-journalctl -b`.

Hi Tom!

I don't have that command installed.
Code:
linux # systemd-
systemd-analyze                 systemd-inhibit
systemd-ask-password            systemd-machine-id-setup
systemd-cat                     systemd-notify
systemd-cgls                    systemd-nspawn
systemd-cgtop                   systemd-run
systemd-coredumpctl             systemd-stdio-bridge
systemd-delta                   systemd-tmpfiles
systemd-detect-virt             systemd-tty-ask-password-agent


Code:
[ebuild   R    ] sys-apps/systemd-208-r2:0/1  USE="acl filecaps firmware-loader gudev introspection kmod pam policykit tcpd -audit -cryptsetup -doc -gcrypt -http -lzma -python -qrcode (-selinux) {-test} -vanilla -xattr" ABI_X86="(64) (-32) (-x32)" PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET="python2_7" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7" 0 kB


My USE flags were set using eselect profile, I choose Desktop Gnome SystemD subprofile.
Also, I added USE flags to remove support for KDE and QT.

What can I do? I'm completely lost.

Now that I have slept a bit, I'm more sane. :lol:

Just checked out dmesg, as though it seems SystemD doesn't even begin to start.
The last line in dmesg is:

Code:
[ 1809.091846] spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.


I guess I did something very wrong with my kernel configuration.

New info bit.

I got a Sabayon LiveDVD with Gentoo to test. I was using Linux Mint XFCE to work my Gentoo installation.
Sabayon with Gnome (and SystemD) ALSO HANGED ON THE STARTUP.
It started loading for a seccond (showing that fancy progress bar) and then blacked out.
I could boot Sabayon with SystemD only after I set options NOAPIC and NOLAPIC.

Everything seems to be working just fine with the LiveDVD.
This info can help me solve my problem?

Yes, sorry, wasn't well awake when I asked that I guess; journalctl indeed, could you post more of the log (if possible) so we can see if there is something else?

Spurious interrupts usually indicate some hardware or kernel problem (especially due to the NO*APIC); so, I'd suggest looking at whether a BIOS upgrade is avaliable as well as trying a different kernel version if that's possible.

What happens when you boot in OpenRC? If that's possible and you couldn't post the log yet, you might want to do `journalctl -b > ~/temporary.log` when you have booted in systemd; then when you are on OpenRC you can upload the log.

Hi there!

I just gave up systemd now. I'm performing a clean install with OpenRC following the Gentoo Handbook and after that I will try to get systemd working.
I guess I'm just too excited to get this thing working... it's my first personal computer after almost 5 years without one!
Can't wait to see my desktop rising. :P

But I will sure be back with the results of logs right away when I get systemd installed!
