Hi, Following the steps at http://www.funtoo.org/GNOME_First_Steps There's a note which says: However, this doesn't seem to happen. I have had to do a separate rc-update add dbus default to get gdm to start. Looking at /etc/init.d/xdm there's a line: use consolekit dbus xfs I've managed to make things work by changing this to: need dbus use consolekit xfs But I have no idea whether this is correct. In short, I believe either the documentation needs to tell people to do rc-update add dbus default, or the init script needs to be changed. I don't know which, I'm n
Hi everybody, i need help with the next problem: when i start my funtoo system with Gnome 3 (i use openrc) everything works well except for GDM, it starts in off screen; is initially shown as expected only for a second and a second later it goes to off screen and i have to move the mouse or to hit any key to see anything again.

Hello All. First off, kudos for finding a way around systemd and GNOME. What a pain in the ass that migration would be. second off, I'm having some behavioral issues with GNOME. I think it might be on the video front, but also might be on the power front (power up, power down, log out, restart, etc). I'm putting them in the same topic because I believe that they might be related on some way. But.... I really don't know how to diagnose this to be quite honest. Lets start with the video side. Everything works great, for a while. If I use a program such as VLC, or Totem, there
