gnome 3 is installed with my recent update.
The problem now I have is that gdm doesn't give a login prompt any more.

Instead, after booted, time and date are displayed in the middle of the screen, sometimes an >>> (point upward) shows up.
there is a task bar on the top screen with volume control icon. I can use the cursor to adjust the volume, but it is not guaranteed as sometime the icon does not respond.

I am sure the system is still working as the time and date are changing.

If I go to different session using ctrl+shift+number, I can use startx to boot and work. but it is not as continent as having an graphic login screen.

Can anyone please shed some light on this issue? thanks a lot!!!

Grab the upward arrows with the mouse and slide the screen up - a login screen is supposed to appear.

Thanks @apheus, I followed your instruction, and have some update.

the screen seems to be ok before I drag the arrows, as the speaker icon always responds to the cursor movement (e.g., the volume bar shows up once I click the speaker). But once I started dragging the arrows as suggested, the whole screen freezes, as indicated by the speaking icon not responding to cursor movement. At some point, the screen changed and displayed

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

hi @7th_sign I think the problem is somehow solved.

But instead of focusing on the problem of gnome 3 itsself, I was looking at the transition from openrc to systemd with:

1 . the guidance of installing systemdhttp://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Systemd

2. the post I wrote about another problem occurred during switching to systemd https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-982834-highlight-.html

3. a second posted about using systemd in grub.cfg http://askubuntu.com/questions/413592/help-with-grub2-booting-ubuntu?noredirect=1#comment532893_413592

4. a proper world update on emerge with systemd flag on is also needed.

When systemd is installed successfully, you are able to logon properly.
