Rsync Symlink Note

I removed the note about symlinks that Thanil added to the rsync tutorial. I've successfully used the method to migrate/install Arch to plenty of systems with various distros (Debian 5, CentOS 6, etc.). I certainly don't want people thinking they must install Fedora or that they're going to have problems. Thanil, have you specifically had problems installing Arch to OpenVZ that were certainly caused by Arch's symlinking of "/bin, /sbin, /lib and /lib64"? With rsync's "-a" argument combined with "--delete", it will just delete those directories if they actually exist, replacing them with the symlinks that the source uses. Yes, that will probably cause the target system to crash at some point, but I've never had it interfere with the copy or the working of this method. I can of course be wrong; maybe there's some system I haven't tested it on where it's actually a problem. --Magotchi (talk) 16:45, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

Journal Issues in systemd 231

While my OpenVZ VPS boots and services seem to start with systemd 231, nothing new gets added to the journal. 230 works great. I would add more information to the page about this issue, but I'm having trouble finding information about it (if its a known issue, which OpenVZ kernel version might have fixed it, etc.). If anyone knows anything, it would be appreciated. --Magotchi (talk) 17:10, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
