Afternoon All,

I'm having a massive amount of trouble installing gentoo with systemd; this is a fresh install and not an upgrade.

Steps (after partitions etc.. are setup):

1) Unpack AMD64 stage3 and emerge-webrsync and then emerge --sync for good measure

2) Eselect profile gnome/systemd

3) emerge --update --deep --with-bdeps=y --newuse @world

4) emerge gentoo sources; config and make the kernel -the gentoo systemd option is enabled as is openrc

5) Install the kernel

6) install mdm and lvm
I'm running a raid0 as root

7) install gentoo-next and genkernel --install --no-ramdisk-modules -mdadm -lvm --udev initramfs (this is as suggested by the systemd and raid install wikis)

8) emerge grub2 and install it with init set to systemd

9) install some utils (e.g dhcpcd)

When i boot into the system i get nothing but a bunch of trouble - never actually having the system boot in full.

Errors (in no particular order as I had to write them by hand):
Code:

Failed to start trigger flushing of journal to persistent storage
Systemd-journal-flush service entered failed state
Systemd-journald.service.watchdog.timeout
Systemd-journal-flush.service exited, code=exited status=1/Failyre

A start job is running for udev Kernel Device Manager service...
Systemd-udevd.service.start operation timed out

Failed to start udev kernel device manager


It just sits there looping for the udev KDM startup always failing

if i hit control alt delete (or indeed type shutdown -h now from within the chrooted environment) i get the following:
Code:

Failed to start reboot
Dependency for reboot failed

systemd-reboot service main process exited..

shutdown -h now

shutdown: /dev/initctl: No such file or directory
init: /dev/initctl: No such file or directory



I've been googling for a couple days now but couldn't find anything (though it is possible I'm blind).

If anyone has any suggestions i would greatly appreciate them!


Further: I removed openrc from the kernel and ran genkernel without the no-ramdisk-modules option. I was able to boot, but it wouldnt accept my credentials. Back to debian to reset the password, boot again, same issues.

I upgraded systemd to 3.16 (unstable) and it is now at least letting me access the emergency terminal..


Progress lol
