So perhaps post to the systemd-devel mailing list (I'm not a #irc
person, just mailing lists)?

Thank you :)  Made my day. Really thought I might have been doing
something obviously wrong...

Reading about it, systemd looks shiny, so I thought I'd assist with
some bug-hunting and resolving by having a go.

The Debian page on installing systemd just says basically apt-get
install systemd. Ended up having to "rescue" my Full-Disk-Encryption
setup, which was a learning experience indeed :)
Unfortunately, I was not able to say why it didn't boot at all,
basically straight to black screen, so my "rescue" ended up being a
reinstall :(

Soldiering on, I valiently tried again. This feature of early bootup
hand gets me again, but this time I had three lines of output, as I
posted above originally, although none of the 3 lines implied any

I wouldn't even mind the reinstall so much if I had have been able to
provide some useful bug report, but alas ... perhaps that's another
systemd feature?:)?

Can anyone here say they've achieved any sort of systemd joy, or am I
just asking for an ongoing world of hurt at the moment?
