I cannot see anything wrong, it is just that before booting into the login window, my system starts at the console, where I have to enter my root username and password, and after that, it boots into the loging window. How can I bypass the console part?

I recently staged a new box, and there also booting stopped at console login. Though after having started typing something - most times just hitting enter or starting to type the username was enough let the bootprocess continue and it started xdm service and thus sddm.

I was advised to install haveged and add it to default runlevel, and that did the trick, though I still don't know why on one of my boxes this happens, whereas on my other box, that I use already a long time, no haveged service is needed. Maybe worth a try?
