Fresh install on a brand new laptop using the latest install medium (2012.09.07).
Whenever I try to use the systemctl command I get the following error message:
Failed to get D-Bus connection: No connection to service manager.
Can't enable/disable/start/stop/whatever anything because of this.
Tried appending init=/bin/systemd to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX, but all to no avail (and yes, I made sure to regenerate grub.cfg).
Don't really know what logs/info you need, but let me know and I'll post it. I've looked through the logs in /var/log but couldn't even find an error message there.
I've also removed quiet from the kernel parameter. Still no errors (not even in journalctl).
Derp. The error stems from systemd not being used. I must have typed the kernel parameter wrong the first time, because going back and trying it again did the trick for me.

Hi! So the problem gone? I do not understand what you did.
Their problem, from what I can tell, was that they were still booting with sysvinit, possibly due to a typo in the "init=/bin/systemd"
So, if you're getting the same problem, make sure that you're actually booting with systemd.
ps -p 1 -o comm=
Should return "systemd". If not, you're not booing with systemd.
