I followed your official guide to migrate from Arch to Parabola, but unfortunately my system became unusable.

I double checked every step, there were no errors and all packages including the kernel of course got updated to libre versions.

your-freedom hasn't been installed yet, but besides Spotify and some unimportant userspace programs my system doesn't contain any other proprietary software which could possibly interfere with Parabola's boot process.

The FOSS xf86-video-ati driver is used for my R9 280X, in addition to the official linux-libre there is another self compiled custom kernel, but after updating gummiboot's entries and rebuilding ramdisks both kernels won't boot but stuck at what seems to be the initialization of systemd.

I can still access my system via an USB stick running an Arch ISO and ch-root into it, but I couldn't come up with any solution besides double checking everything again.

Journalctl doesn't tell anything either, it just stops after loading the first units and hangs there forever.

A couple of months ago I compiled the linux-libre kernel fron the AUR plus some patches just for fun and it would freeze at book the very same way, but as this was a fully working Arch system trying to tun a quickly build hobby kernel, it didn't bother me at all.

After several hours of thinking and rechecking I even reverted my system back to proper Arch, namely replacing all libre packages again by updating against Arch's repositories, but with no avail. Now I am, again, back to Parabola - both wouldn't boot anyway, so I'd rather get Parabola running, haha.

I therefore assume to have a kernel related issue. I will provide any config or log if necessary, but will only do so on request as getting them into these mails is a bit painful.

Hopefully someone can help me, thanks in advance!
