I have just installed gentoo with systemd, however journalctl shows no journal.
Code:
localhost /run # journalctl
-- No entries --


dmesg shows:
[ 231.292201] systemd-journald[10642]: Failed to open runtime journal: No such file or directory
Code:

[ebuild   R    ] sys-apps/systemd-236-r5:0/2::gentoo  USE="kmod pam -acl* (-apparmor) -audit -build -cryptsetup -curl -elfutils -gcrypt* -gnuefi -http -idn -importd -libidn2 -lz4* -lzma -nat -policykit -qrcode -seccomp* (-selinux) -ssl* -sysv-utils* {-test} -usrmerge -vanilla -xkb" ABI_X86="(64) -32 (-x32)" 0 KiB


I'm using the default journald.conf:

What does
Code:
$ ls /var/log/journal/$(hostnamectl status|grep Machine|awk '{print $3}')

report? If an error shows up in that command, that needs to be resolved...

nope no error:

Code:
localhost ~ # ls /var/log/journal/$(hostnamectl status|grep Machine|awk '{print $3}')
remote


but hostnamectl does not have machine in its output:
localhost /var/log/journal # hostnamectl status

Does the file /etc/machine-id exist? Its absence has been reported in the past to result in the above error message. Have you tried the following work-around to get journald working?:

Code:
# touch /etc/machine-id
