|This is similar to other posts about GNOME but I still can't find the answer.
Fresh new Gentoo installation, profile default/linux/x86/13.0/desktop/gnome/systemd, + emerge gnome-base/gnome.
Login takes me to a blank screen with just the Gentoo symbol (as at top left of this page) near the bottom. Mouse pointer works but the screen is blank.
top shows gnome-shell running at 96%--98% CPU.
I rebooted and rm -rf $HOME/.[A-z]* to clear $HOME/.local, $HOME/.gnome2 etc.
Login, no difference. $HOME/.local/share/systemd/user is symlinked to non-existent ../../../.config/systemd/user
systemctl stop gdm. mkdir .config/systemd/user -- I don't even know if it's supposed to be a directory. Anyway, systemctl start gdm, login again, same non-result.
Any ideas ?
