Anything required for Systemd?

Asking as it does not work properly for me with systemd v36, whereas it's just fine with the old initscripts:

  • No progress bar at boot
  • Won't switch to the login prompt at tty1.
  • Instead after fading out, the screen remains black for some sec, then the theme suddenly reappears.
  • The tty can then be called manually — but with an entirely wrong framebuffer resolution, apparently the smallest.
  • Nothing is displayed when rebooting/shutting down (as without fbsplash).

I'm using the binary Nvidia beta drivers, i. e. no KMS, without a fbcondecor-patched kernel.

GRUB Legacy lines:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/… resume=/dev/sda3 ro logo.nologo vga=794 splash=silent,fadein,fadeout,theme:arch-elegant init=/bin/systemd quiet loglevel=3
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/… resume=/dev/sda3 ro logo.nologo vga=794 console=tty1 quiet loglevel=3 splash=silent,fadein,fadeout,theme:arch-elegant

I experienced these problems too when I was using an fbcondecor patched kernel with the proprietary drivers (non-beta version) and initscripts. Nowadays, I'm on systemd, so testing this as well as the fbcondecor not applying to all ttys is going to be during my winter break.
