Do you have the correct graphics drivers installed (xf86-video-*)? At
least xf86-video-vesa should work. See
In addition, '# systemctl enable gdm' links to
/etc/system/display-manager.service. If you read the file you'll find
it's /usr/lib/systemd/system/gdm.service. When enabled it should skip
the tty prompt and go straight to the gdm login manager (grey
background, usually lists the users in the system).
