I've been using arch for a couple of months now and all's been fine. I updated last week to gnome3.6 however and a lot of my system broke. I couldn't start any window managers or desktop environments at all. After reading about the initscripts deprecation I migrated completely to systemd and uninstalled initscripts, as per the wiki. This let me boot up, change to tty2 and start gnome with startx.
Now my only problem is that GDM will not start on boot. The normal arch booting screen doesn't appear anymore and instead has been replaced by the following error:
/dev/sda5: clean, 227778/2689904 files, 6575481/10749432 blocks
(The numbers vary and sda5 is my root partition)
I've tried different things like reinstalling the legacy ATI driver I'm using and running aticonfig again, messing with my .xinitrc file and making it executable for everyone.
I'm lost, any help?

that's not an error, it's the output of fsck.
have you actually enabled gdm?
systemctl enable gdm
If you already did that, post the output of:
systemctl status gdm
I had enabled gdm during the migration between initscripts and systemd
Here's the output:
gdm.service - GNOME Display Manager Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/gdm.service; enabled) Active: active (running) since Sun, 2012-11-11 17:42:36 GMT; 2h 8min ago Main PID: 259 (gdm-binary) CGroup: name=systemd:/system/gdm.service └ 259 /usr/sbin/gdm-binary
Also, my keyring isn't being unlocked when I start via startx and none of my .desktops in ~/.config/autostart/ will start. I'm just not sure where to start here
