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)

Why would you expect this to fail? The systemd hook is included with... systemd. Falconindy (talk) 14:32, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
mmm... because mkinitcpio -L don't show systemd hook, then it is assumed there is no.Veleno (talk) 15:01, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
And it may fail because [core] does not have it yet in systemd (204). Only testing (206) has it as of today. --Indigo (talk) 17:03, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
I have the systemd version 204-3. My example is refer to this package.Veleno (talk) 18:31, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
Now this confuses me, are we not talking about "/usr/lib/initcpio/install/systemd" which is not in the filelist of 204-3 but in 206?
$ pacman -Qil systemd #grep initcpio/install/ 
systemd /usr/lib/initcpio/install/
systemd /usr/lib/initcpio/install/timestamp
systemd /usr/lib/initcpio/install/udev
I am at a loss. --Indigo (talk) 00:41, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
If mkinitcpio doesn't complain about the systemd hook not existing, then it exists. Rather than blindly stabbing at pacman's DB, why don't you go see what exists in /usr/lib/initcpio/install/systemd ? Hooks which don't exist will error out.
