keymap v. consolefont
Using the consolefont hook seems to work as advertised in /lib/initcpio/hooks/consolefont and
mkinitcpio -H consolefont i.e. I get my font in the early stages of the boot process, while using keymap only sets the font a bit later and mangles Polish accented characters if I'm using
DAEMON_LOCALE="yes". I think we need to add consolefont to the HOOKS list and fix keymap hook description. -- Karol 11:10, 21 January 2012 (EST)
systemd hook ?
Can someone point me to the "systemd" hook added by this revision?: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Mkinitcpio&oldid=267771 It's not listed by mkinitcpio -L and I don't see it in testing (0.15) too. What is meant by it? Thanks --Indigo (talk) 18:50, 25 July 2013 (UTC) Ah, found this thread: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=167153&p=2]this[/url] So I guess the wiki is just flying ahead of [core].
- True! However mkinitcpio-p works, and it does not error free. why? Veleno (talk) 19:45, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
