[SOLVED] Migration from 32-bit to 64-bit: Failed Console-kit

I have migrated x86 (32-bit) arch to x86_64 arch. I have done the migration by following the steps indicated here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mi … installing
from a 64-bit Arch iso LiveCD.

During system booting a message appears saying failed to start console system startup logging and suggests to see systemctl status console-kit-log-system-start.service.
At login screen it appears my user ready to login so I select it but I cannot put my password, once I select the user, there is no possibility to enter my password. I guess that it is caused by the message error shown during booting related to Console system startup logging so I do what suggested:

systemctl status console-kit-log-system-start.service

but it says service has exited, no more information is given. It is said it is loaded.

Any ideas?

At logging screen if I press CTRL+ALT+F2 I can access to the console, enter my user and password and no problem, but from the graphical interface login I cannot, no way to introduce my password once user is selected.

the problem isn't "console" it's "console-kit", which was removed from the repos months ago. Remove it from your system.

What DM are you using?

I am using gnome3.

Could you explain how to remove console-kit, please?

I have found below articles but I am a bit confused...

Solved! As you said, I have removed console-kit from my system and now I can login trough graphical interface without problems. After selecting the user I can enter the password now. All ok. Thanks!

I have removed console-kit from my system by doing:

pacman -Rdd consolekit
