    Display a hopefully useful message with plymouth when the GDM service fails (refs: #14521) · 2d669b71

    This sets up the foundations for displaying a useful error message, but it does
    not cover the case when GDM repeatedly tries to start Xorg and fails, which is
    the most interesting one wrt. #14521: when this happens the gdm3 process is
    still running and the service is in "active (running)" state, even once GDM
    manages to put itself in a bad enough shape that it can't even retry starting
    Xorg anymore.
    One way to trigger such a failure is:
       systemctl kill --signal=9 gdm
