As I've read what I've written below, this looks like some sort of stupid joke. I promise this is not the case.

I think I've properly completed the systemd installation and GNOME/3.8 upgrade procedures.

dmesg shows no error/failures.

There are no errors in: Xorg.0.log

There is some sort of graphical display on the screen.

It has a bunch of blue (of various shades) vertical lines of varying widths.

There is a clock (in white characters) that has no leading zero suppression, ex:
Quote:
09:40


Underneath the clock is the Day and date, right now:
Quote:
Wednesday, December 18


The mouse courser is on the screen, and it seems to work.

At the top of the screen is a dark transparent bar (through which the previously mentioned vertical lines can still be seen).

Some times when I move the mouse a series of largish white:

^
^
^

characters (same font as the clock/date) are animated on the screen below the clock and then they fade away.

After a while, the system fades into screen saver (black). Moving the mouse or pressing a key brings it back with the same behavior outlined above.

I can secure shell into the system and do normal command line "stuff"

I can change to a command line terminal with Ctl+Alt+F1,...Ctl+Alt+F6. As expected, Ctl+Alt+F7 returns me to the GUI.

I have no idea how to log in to the system. There's no prompt that offers the opportunity to enter my name/password.

Is the system broken? Or can it simply be that I just don't know how to get it's attention?

:?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Steve

The animation below the clock

Code:

^
^

is supposed to tell you that you have to grab the screen with the mouse, and drag it up. The clock screen will slide up and reveal the login screen/unlock screen with password entry.

Clearly inspired by touch devices... :roll:

Thanks for your reply.

I never would have guessed.

When I do as suggested:

- The system pauses (mouse stops tracking) and the disk access light comes on briefly.

- At some point a little frowning robot face comes up and the text under it says:

Quote:

Oh no! Something has gone wrong.
A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. All extensions have bgeen disabled as a precaution.


Below that there is a "Log Out" button which takes me back to the first not-quite-login screen.

When I check dmesg, I see:

There seems to be one new dmesg record for each login attempt.

Sorry I can't help you further here, I only saw this weird lock/clock screen once when I checked out Antergos once (just for fun, not to replace my main system), and there it did not crash. I use KDE on my gentoo box.

Thanks for the effort. You did help.

I went back and reviewed the systemd setup procedure and noticed that I had failed to modify my kernel command tail. According to the instructions, I need to add:

Quote:

init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd


I now have a relatively broken system, at first glance: No network, No gui, and more fun to come I'm sure.

Weirdly, even with a very broken system, I'm going to mark this as solved. The problem I was looking for help with is "done".

Thank-you again for your help.

Steve

Yes, an init system migration implies you need to repeat the steps to set up your networking again on the new init system.

Fact of the matter is: I looked over the systemd document again to make sure that I didn't miss anything else of significance.

Once I was satisfied with that, I worked my way through the services that needed to be started. With that done, a quick reboot and the system ran perfectly.

Now that I've had time to fool around with Gnome 3 and systemd I find at the very least Gnome 3 is tedious. The out of the box behaviour is not what I consider to be a good development environment. It feels very much like Window$ in this regard. This may be a goal of the developers. The feel is that close.

Much is made by it's authors about how the ability to put shortcuts on the desktop is easy to enable, and that Gnome 3 also supports multiple work spaces. Turning these on is not intuitive.

On some level, I'm surprised that they didn't find some way to ape the Window$ 8.x start menu.

The only rock I have to throw at systemd is that it's different. Most of the same functionality of system V init scripts and udev is adequately supported by systemd. These are things I don't fool around with too much.
