Why does this article make it seem as if GPT disks are the only option? btrfs is fine on MBR disks. In fact the entire section on GPT partitioning is generic and entirely irrelevant to using btrfs for root. The section should merely point to gpt or mbr partitioning pages.
I have removed the relevant "disputed, unconfirmed blabla" bits about syslinux. Updated the part on installing the syslinux bootloader and added links to relevant parts of the syslinux wiki.The system install part still needs some changes to reflect the use of the AIS (arch-chroot, pacstrap etc). --Flako (talk) 08:46, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
rsync command rediculous
I noticed that the recommended rsync command on this page is rediculous. It includes archive, verbose, partial/progress, sparse, and interestingly hard-links, which is already included in the archive flag. The one that really makes me scratch my head in stupor though is the -h. As far as I can tell, that is the flag for help, which seems to be ignored when combined with all the others.
For now I am simply going to change it to -aAXv, which is what the "Full System Backup with rsync" page recommends. I am no expert with rsync, so if you feel as though you have a better, more efficient, faster, more complete, etc. way of using rsync in this manner, please feel free to update it as you see fit. If that is the case though, maybe update the "Full System Backup with rsync" page as well. --WonderWoofy (talk) 15:02, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
