Hello,

I just installed Gentoo for the first time. After configuring everything, I have a fully working systemd + gnome3 environment, but there's still an (aesthetic) issue I couldn't resolve.

I registered GDM on boot with the standard 'systemctl enable gdm" command. However, when the system boots up, it first shows me a getty login screen, then loads gdm. I'd rather have it go directly to GDM instead of doing that, but still have getty at the other tty's. I think this could be done by disabling getty at tty7, but I do not know systemd enough to do that.

How can I do this?

EDIT: A few minutes after posting this, I discovered the answer in the wiki. Apparently, systemd boots into tty1, and after gdm starts it changes to tty7, by disabling getty at tty1 you don't see the getty login, that solves my problem. :)
