Description Gutleib 2019-02-27 21:33:28 UTC
After installing on Power Mac G5, gdm was not starting.

Short info: 
G5, gentoo from stage3, profile default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/17.0/64bit-userland/desktop/gnome/systemd (stable).

Lots of uninformative messages in journal:

...Well, long story short, emerging gdm did not produce /var/lib/gdm/.local/share/xorg folder, which blocked starting of gdm.

Mkdir, chown - all works. Please, fix it for other unlucky users!
