Hello,

I am brand new to Gentoo and have successfully installed GNOME 3.22 without systemd from the layman profile. After one day of work I suddenly become locked out of my computer after I login from a fresh boot.
It happens only once, when I login again my system works normal until the next reboot.

Any idea how to fix this?

Kind Regards,
Richard

Hello,

I believe this has nothing todo with rc instead of systemd and I think people will find my problem here more easily.
Actually I installed Gnome without systemd because I thought this will be the official, supported and more stable way for GNOME since Gentoo uses rc.

What are the pros and cons for using Gnome with or without system.d? I have read from many problems in Gentoo from systemd...

After years of experiening this on and off, I'm pretty sure it's directly related to GDM. It was last discussed here and if you search elsewhere it has been mentioned as early as in 2012.

One workaround is to switch to a different display manager. Another is to wait a few seconds between each step of the initial login process.

As per the project documentation, GNOME Without Systemd isn't supported by Gentoo.

That topic has been discussed to death. You either know why you want a specific init system or you don't care as long as it works.

Hi,

I deactivated the automatic lock in Settings --> Privacy. Not an elegant solution, but currently I do not need automatic monitor locking. Without it the issue is gone. Btw, a second and third install of Gentoo on three different machines face exactly the same issue, this is completely reproducable.

Do you have some links for comparison of system.d and rc under GNOME? If this is discussed to death, the forum should be full of discussions, a well structured documentation page or at least a topic put to the top should exist, but I do not find even one comparison.

I can only give feedback, when decising for GNOME desktop I felt lost how to decide for the right profile in order to achieve the most stable and future-oriented system!
