Hey all, back again with another noob question!
Been kind of plinking away at this first time Gentoo install today, just finished emerging my plasma 17.0 systemd packages but the handbook has me a touch confused:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Installation/Base#Optional:_Using_systemd_as_the_init_system

When the handbook references the systemd setup page, the bit I knew going in, most of these commands requiring an operating instance of systemd. Is it implied that I will be running these after having my kernel and bootloader installed?
If not is there a step I'm missing?

Thanks again in advance, this has been a great learning experience compared to drag and drop OSes like RHEL derivatives or Ubuntu, this community has been loads of help as well! I doubt this will be my last Gentoo install for any foreseeable time.

You dont have to manually install systemd.
If you (e)-selected a systemd profile then by running:
Code:

emerge --update --deep --changed-use --ask --quiet @world  ###or for short
emerge -uDUaq @world

portage will automatically download or 'pull' systemd and any and all necessary packages pertaining to your selected profile according to the profile's inbuilt USE flags and you custom defined USE flags in /etc/portage/make.conf.
This is the power of USE flags.

Now I suppose you are working in a chrrot-environment therefore systemd commands--baring the systemctl enable <service etc>-- are NOT going to work.
So YES basically finish all the initramfs/grub-install/update tasks and then you need to exit the chroot and boot into your fabulous new system.
Ah and a piece of advice Gentoo is urging all users to upgrade to the 17.1 profiles.You can either manually upgrade later or start with 17.1 right from the start.
Good Luck
:) :)

Precisely, within the chroot env from minimal. That's what I figured I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going insane

What I would do is at minimum install and enable
Code:

net-misc/networkmanager

so that when you reboot you will have a working net connection.

Well, it depends. You can install Networkmanager, but you don't have to. Systemd comes with systemd-networkd, which is sufficient to get your network up and running.
