Subject: [gentoo-user] Start conflict "elogind" vs "fwupd"

1 Greetings,
3 since my last routine Gentoo upgrade on 2021-02-01 "fwupd" is no longer
4 started in the "default" run level. Reason is that "fwupd" erroneously
5 thinks its prerequisite "elogind" is not yet running, starts it again,
6 interprets the error message "already started" and the non-zero exit
7 code as "not startable", and gives in. In order to allow "fwupd" to
8 start" I had to -- temporarily -- remove the "elogind" prerequisite in
9 file "/etc/init.d/fwupd".
11 Did anybody else observe this behaviour? Is this a known problem?
13 Sincerely,
14 Rainer
