Is this supported by proprietary nvidia?
Code:
Initializing built-in extension XINERAMA

Twinview instead?

Now this will sound bonkers, but since upgrading to the latest ~Gnome3.8 and systemd, I was left with a black screen when logging in.

I am presented with GDM from where I log in, and then I am left with a blank screen.
Sometimes it will load the desktop AFTER 4 MINUTES!!! and other times, nothing.

Even after waiting for 4 minutes, I am taken back to the GDM login screen. !!

I removed networkmanager from start up and the blank screen problem was solved. How weird.

I do think however, my solution will not work for all.

This seems to be a somewhat "endemic" problem, as I had the exact same problem: my computer would boot, X server would be started, but GDM would only appear sometimes, and if it did, Gnome would never start after logging in. And no matter how hard I tried to look for (obvious) errors, there were none... Finally, I removed systemd, removed Gnome-3.8, then installed OpenRC and XFCE...

I had a problem similar to this but it was because I couldn't get the nouveau drivers working. I fixed it by switching to the nvidia drivers.

...ok...it was mysterioulsy working for a while, but I've just rebuilt most of my system and still get the black screen and when I press Ctrl + Alt + F1 I get this:
Code:
Loading extension GLX
Loading extension NV-GLX
Loading extension NV-CONTROL
Loading extension XINERAMA
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 59: twm: command not found
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 62: xterm: command not found

and a flashing cursor

I really want to solve this... and I can't believe no one else has this issue

If you install xterm, you will probably get a terminal instead of just a flashing cursor. lol.

Seeing how you have just rebuilt your system it might be worthwhile using
Code:
eselect opengl list

and checking your opengl is set properly.
