I recently switched a Gentoo system from OpenRC to systemd. I'd like to
keep tty1 (VT1) for login, and move the display manager (SDDM) to tty7.
SDDM is configured for that, but the installed service file
(/usr/lib/systemd/system/sddm.service) has this:
If I edit that file directly and change it to:
it works. systemd is prevented from stopping getty on tty1. I can login
normally on VT1.
However, this change gets lost on SDDM updates. So I'd like to override
that. So I did:
systemctl edit sddm.service
with this in it:
This successfully creates
/etc/systemd/system/sddm.service.d/override.conf with the above contents.
AFAIK, this should override "Conflicts" and prevent ***@tty1.service
from stopping. But it doesn't. When SDDM starts, tty1 is stopped. The
only way to keep that from happening is to edit the installed
sddm.service file directly.
Does someone know why the override doesn't work?
