Hello

I just preformed a new Gentoo install using the "default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/gnome/systemd" profile. The installation appears to have gone fine and I'm currently able to boot the 3.10.25 kernel with SystemD.

The problem comes when I try to load load GDM, I get either a black screen or a sad computer screen and a terminal message which says "Failed to give slave programs access to display." I decided I would try lightdm and see if I could load gnome, but the same thing happens after I click login, I can start lightdm fine but loading gnome will either hang or just crash.

I'm able to load other WM's like TWM and Openbox ( which I'm currently working in ).

I remember running into this issue a while ago ( several months ) but can't remember what fixed it.

This is the output of emerge --info
