desktop: openrc + gnome 3.6 -> no problem
laptop: systemd + gnome 3.6 -> worked and then broke after some updates

I am currently mostly using my desktop, but I would like to transition to systemd with both systems for the future. However when I boot my laptop gnome(-shell) fails to start (the typical "oh no, s.th. went wrong" thing), with stuff like this in

/var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log http://bpaste.net/show/52077/
emerge --info: http://bpaste.net/show/52093/
journalctl -ab: http://bpaste.net/show/52094/

It looks like canek peláez was able to run a systemd + gnome setup without consolekit https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53905#c11
another systemd/gnome related bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=436602#c1

what information/changes is/are needed to fix this?

First, sorry for no help on the systemd front (or udevsystempulseaudiod, as it's called, that just got webserver and QRCode abilities).

But, just out of curiosity, why do you want to migrate your systems? It's clearly being ignored in serious distros, for the time being, and there is talk about forking udev etc.

I really, don't want to hijack. I'm just curious, so you might want to wait until someone knowing systemd or Gnome3 (judging by the JS) helps you before you answer.

My GnomeOS runs perfectly with Kde since systemd-189. It is called GnomeOS by some Poettering haters here in the forums. But it seems to me a misnamer.

Without looking into your attachements I would search failures at:
- gstreamer-1
- syslog
- try to only use current~unstable packages when trying such new beast as systemd!

For my Kde system I purged consolekit and syslog, then patched Kdm for only using udisks2...

I sometimes fail to recognize masked useflags that need to be unmasked: in this case 'systemd' ...

this is what killed my once working half-assed systemd setup, specifically those changes in the portage tree:

/usr/portage/profiles/arch/amd64/package.use.mask:
Quote:
#sys-auth/polkit -systemd

/usr/portage/profiles/base/package.use.mask:
Quote:
sys-auth/polkit systemd


this masked sys-auth/polkit[systemd], which pulled in sys-auth/pambase[consolekit] and sys-auth/consolekit[policykit]

so for the record: if anyone reading this has problems with systemd/gnome and wants to purge consolekit in favor of systemd you have to:

unmask the useflag 'systemd':
Code:
mkdir -p /etc/portage/profile/use.mask
echo "-systemd" >> /etc/portage/profile/use.mask/systemd

disable the useflag 'consolekit' in /etc/portage/make.conf
Code:
euse -D consolekit
(euse is part of app-portage/gentoolkit)

make sure portage's default profile settings don't activate the 'consolekit' useflag by accident:
Code:
mkdir -p /etc/portage/profile/use.force
echo "-consolekit" >> /etc/portage/profile/use.force/systemd

of course the 'systemd' useflag should be enabled in /etc/portage/make.conf:
Code:
euse -E systemd


finally run:
Code:
emerge -avDN world

to clean your system from now uneccessary packages such as sys-auth/consolekit run:
Code:
emerge -av --depclean


last words: this isn't meant as a complaint but just as help to those looking for help ;) I searched, asked in irc and didn't get (overlooked?) the input that could have pointed me in the right direction.
let everybody choose what they like best ;)

Yeah, we need to have a systemd special profile !
I doubt old style Gentoo maintainers will allow to go this way.
Time to fork a profile!
(Funtoo.org will not do us this favor. Robbins already said: "systemd? no.")
