After a recent update, I have had the problem which I am trying to solve in this thread: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-7846074.html

Bottom line is that I boot with a root fs that is ro. I had been able to at least get into a working environment with "mount -o rw,remount /" but that would not let me access screen :0. For some reason it would put be into screen :1. After walking away from my system for awhile I had some crashes and then the system froze, so after a reboot tried the same command after a hobbled boot (as described i the other thread) and now when i finally am able to load X I am dumped into screen :2. What?! Where are my previous screens, how can I force X to connect to the screens I want to get into? Are they locked and if so, how can I unlock them? I assume it has something to do with my ro system not being timed right during boot to free up the services needed to get to the proper screen. Any help with this is or the previous thread is appreciated.

Yeah just forgotten your other thread (glad you link to it!)
For me, as long as you don't fix previous issue. Trying to fix other issues is a lost cause ; everyone may battle to endup seeing the previous issue is doing your other issues.
Should try fixing previous one first then (sorry i answer in too many threads, i'm sometimes flood by reminders and lose some).
