rc.local depreciated

Is it safe to remove the bit in the keyboard and touchpad section about using rc.local. I updated the section but I don't know if I should just take that section out. Is anyone still using initscripts?

Arch do not support initscripts any more. All relate info should be removed. Just make sure needed systemd info is provided before remove. -- Fengchao (talk) 05:44, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Obsolete information about kernel params

The 8,2/8,3 section mentions having to pass specific kernel parameters but according to this bug report that should no longer be needed --Madpet (talk) 12:58, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Alright, I just tried installing Arch on a completely wiped Macbook8,2 (Early 2011 model), and the only kernel parameter that needed to be added for things to work correctly was `radeon.modeset=0` (if not added, the screen freezes during boot). All the other stuff seems to be obsolete - the page could do with a cleanup. --Madpet (talk) 16:19, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
