Hallo friends.
As I said before, with your great help, I managed to emerge kde-plasma/plasma-meta-5.13.3 onto my pc box.
In short, I have
- a Gigabyte Z147X a/c maiboard
- an Intel core i7 7700t processor with 2.9 GHertz
- 8 GByte DDR4 Ram with 2133 MHz
- a 240 GByte Intel SSD with210 GBytes free

From a root terminaltty1, I tested to start plasma with the command:
Code:
systemctl start sddm
which led into a work Plasma Desktop. That's great, that's what I wanted. Now I want to boot directly into login screen of sddm

So, after emerging plasma-meat-5-13-3 itself, I enabled SDDM with
Code:
systemctl enable sddm

and then rebooted the pc box. But instead booting and opening the sddm login screen, I only see these messages on the boot screen:
Code:
early console in extract_kernel
input_data: 0x000000000000002bef3b1
input_len: 0x00000000000000053b3b
output: 0x000000001000000
output_len: 0x0000000000001f139a0
kernel_total_size: 0x000000000001bd6000
trampoline_32bit: 0x000000000009a000

Decompressing Linux... Parsing ELF... done.
Booting the kernel.
[    0.000000] [Firmware Bug]: TSC_DEADLINE disabled due to Errata: please updat

[    0.851116] systemd[1457]: /lib/64/systemd/system-generators/systemd-gpt-auto-generator failed with exit status 1



Nothing changes, no login screen appears, no tty1 login prompt appears.
But then I tried to change the terminal and changed with <ctrl> <alt> <F2> and I got to terminal 2.
When I entered root <Enter> and then begin to enter my root password, then suddenly, the login screen ofsddm appears.

Without changing the terminal, or such pressing a key in tty1 nothing make the system displaying the login screen.

So: When I boot into a terminal with disabled sddm then I can start sddm-login manually with the command
Code:
systemctl start sddm
but when sddm.service is enabled, the login sddm screen is not appearing.

Any idea?

Thank you in advance.

Hallo friends.
I will report that this topic is solved.
The long boot time until random: crng init done which were many seconds,
I could prevent only, when I disabled systemd services like networkmanager.
Only then, my pc box booted fast.
So, I let this service disabled until I found a solution here:
https://forum.manjaro.org/t/boot-delay-random-crng-init-done/47182

This meant, I emerged sys-apps/haveged.
Then I started
Code:
systemctl enable haveged


and simply booted again.
That was the solution.

Thank you for joining!
