I have installed gentoo running with systemd & kernel 4.4.6 and
profile: default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/gnome/systemd
on an Intel NUC 6i5SYH

I followed some of the guide: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Systemd/Installing_Gnome3_from_scratch
and installed twm.
It runs just fine.
Then I installed gnome 3.18
When running gdm the screen just flickers and no login is reached.

I am not exactly sure what the next step would be to get gnome running. Any ideas?

Can you try with startx instead of gdm?
We'll see if the probleme is gdm.

startx can start gnome just fine, so I guess it is something with gdm.
I've tried with the WaylandEnable=false, but that still doesn't help.
I do have wayland installed, but I don't know how to test if it is working.
I would like to have both Wayland and X as an option
