1 Hey list
3 after the many discussions here about systemd I had a flash of
4 objectivity (“Who cares if people rant about Lennart, the concept seems
5 sound and I don’t care about separate /usr”). So I wanted to try systemd
6 on my netbook.
8 I cloned the / partition from sda2 to sda7 and chrooted into it. In
9 there I followed the systemd Gentoo wiki¹, i.e. I configured the kernel,
10 installed systemd, added "-consolekit systemd" to my use flags, rebuilt
11 world with --new-use and added init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd to the
12 kernel cmdline.
14 Rebooting works until the point of mounting /home, which is a LUKS
15 container. I get the message:
16 "A start job is running for dev-mapper-home.service"
17 and eventually a timeout and prompt for root password or Ctrl-D.
19 The wiki references a bug report that /etc/crypttab was ignored. Well, I
20 didn’t have one, but apparently my old crypt setup was heeded (because
21 systemd knew that I wanted sda5 mounted as home).
23 I tried researching the problem. One I found was a Gentoo forum thread
24 about LVM. I found out that I was missing CONFIG_DM_UEVENT. But enabling
25 it didn’t help either. I found files in the partition’s /dev directory,
26 which hinted that DEVTMPFS_MOUNT was not set. But I don’t suppose that’s
27 really a problem.
29 Does any of you have experience with this combination and would like to
30 share it? Thanks.

36 On a sidenote, for some reason, grub2 doesn’t find the kernel if I keep
37 the menuentry’s search commands which are created by grub2-mkconfig.
38 Only if I remove all the search --uuid...yadda yadda..., the entry
39 boots.
40 The boot partition (where the grub files lie) is still my normal / on
41 sda2. It then boots the systemd installation on sda7 which was detected
42 by os_prober.
