Hi all,

I need some help with my latest Gentoo installation. I went through a number of kernel interations, but am still stuck in a boot loop. For this installation I decided to go with systemd and it appears that this might be where the issue lies...

Some general info: I'm booting off of a vfat partition on an NVME drive using EFI stub. / and home are located on f2fs formated LVM logical volumes on top of LUKS. I'm using Ryzen 3950x set in an X570 mobo with Rx 5700xt for graphics. I'm on my own custom profile that sets parents to 17.1/desktop and 17.1/systemd as well as setting make.defaults to "-X wayland".

The initramfs init seems to successfully decrypt and mount my partitions and hand the reigns over to systemd, which promptly reaches target Shutdown reporting nothing but green OKs along the way. It doesn't look like the boot logs are being saved (chroot-ing in and running journalctl produces no output).

Here's one config I used.

And here are the boot pics: one, two

Any ideas?

Passing systemd.unit=rescue.target to the kernel allowed me to boot and find the culprit. systemd-fsck-root.service is failing due to a bug in fsck.f2fs: https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/15106 Updating to the masked f2fs-tools-1.14.0 "fixes" the issue by allowing the system to boot (the tool exits with a code of 0), but still prints "Error: In use by the system!" to the logs. That's what I get for trying out a new filesystem. :/
