This is my first time installing gentoo, I've been using Arch for about a year now and I want to try something new. I think I get the point if the USE flags, but they are causing my a complete headache. When I compiled my kernel, I picked systemd because I want to use gnome, I also chose that as my profile, but when I try to install sys-apps/dbus, it will not configure, even with the -systemd flag. So I cannot install a logger, systemd, gnome, or probably anything else till I fix this problem. Please help? What are some steps that I have to take to get it working?

PS:
here is my USE flags before trying to install anything

USE = "bindx mmx sse sse2 -systemd dvd X python"

You forgot to paste the actual error here. If you tell someone your car doesn't start, and don't even open the hood, you can't possibly expect anyone to know what's wrong with it.

USE = "bindx mmx sse sse2 -systemd dvd X python" -systemd means do not compile with systemd support.
USE="" in etc/portage/make.conf is a good choice when you have selected a profile that meets your needs.
Code:
eselect profile list

to set: (shown already set)
Code:
eselect profile set 5

add global USE flags only under extreme duress.
