Yes TobiSGD's kindhearted reply was exactly the clue I needed for the most pressing problem...

Your rant was off topic.
As the original poster, I feel I should say in cyberpatrol's defense that his first post was just a strongly opinionated recommendation to use something other than systemd. And his second did contain a clue about the method TobiSGD explained...

Please don't do that again.
Now keep this thread on topic.
End of discussion*.
*I am this forums moderator so thread carefully.
As to the rest of his posts, I'm inclined to think that having a long pi^H^H {shall we say shouting?} contest with a moderator does not show wisdom...

I'll be trying TobiSGD's suggestion in a few minutes. Could be that it will make my GPM problem go away too. But if not, I'll start a new thread.

Thanks

I just had a look in the ArchWiki (they use also systemd) and adding GPM to the current running target is done with
Code:
systemctl enable gpm.service
If you just want to start it without adding it to the current target try
Code:
systemctl start gpm.service

Thanks I'll have to try that...

I gather from that arch wiki that perhaps systemctl is the systemd equivalent of rc-update??

Yes, systemctl is the main program to control systemd, but I can't say if it is like rc-update (never used that).

Well on Sabayon and presumably other {pre systemD} gentoo systems, rc-update adds and removes symlinks to init scripts to/from runlevel specific directories...

Similar in function to what debian based systems use update-rc.d for...

Though as systemD gains popularity with the developers of various distributions, knowing how to use rc-update and/or update-rc.d may become as useful as knowing how to hunt saber toothed tigers... It's going to take a while I think for me to adapt to systemctl. :sigh:
