Description

After a clean install with openrc I experienced very slow logins, including sudo, starting services etc.
After looking at /var/log/everything.log I found references to systemd which I thought was odd, due to it being an openrc system.
The solution for me was removing systemd using pacman, without removing dependent packages. I also installed your-initfreedom.
I don't know if this was an issue on my hand while installing Parabola with openrc, or if there is an issue in the installation process itself. I know that more people have experienced the same issue, and temporary fix could be:

  • check if `grep systemd /var/log/everything.log` returns references to systemd
  • remove systemd, libsystemd... (without removing their dependent packages, as I don't know if this will break the system yet)
  • install your-initfreedom

Hope this temporary fix can help others.

Clarification:

The lines in everything.log looks something like:
dbus-daemon1731: [system] Activating service name='org.freedesktop.systemd1' requested by '1:37' (uid=0 pid=2152 comm="sudo ls")...
and correlates with the slow login (in this case executing the command 'sudo ls')

I found another issue describing the underlying problem better [[https://labs.parabola.nu/issues/2026]]. It seems there are some dependency problems in base-openrc that injects systemd alongside with openrc.
