CUPS symlinking

This is fixed on my machine... maybe we should remove this section.

Removed. Close. -- Fengchao (talk) 09:46, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

initrd usage

If you are using an initrd without the udev hook, mounting of additional LVM partitions will fail during boot. Add udev to your mkinitcpio hooks and rebuild the initrd.

Display manager fails to load with fast SSD

I was having a problem with my display manager (LXDM) not loading on my laptop, which has a Sandisk Extreme SSD. Xorg.log would show errors like "No screens found."

I eventually figured out that the problem was that my computer was booting so fast that KMS didn't have enough time to kick in before X was started. I solved by adding the KMS driver (i915 in my case) to the initramfs.

Just a tip for SSD users, not sure if it should be added to the page or not.

  • This is a general problem that needs to be solved in the display manager. GDM already implements the bits for the CanGraphical flag.

a reboot using systemd is necessary before enabling services, which isn't mentioned in the installation overview. I've added it, but if I'm incorrect on this feel free to revert it and (for my benefit) explain.

  • No need reboot for enabling services.

Sleep hooks

The example script "" only works with a "#!/bin/sh" in the first line. Because this is my first post in the wiki, I have put this here for being savety.

fixed, thanks. btw, in the future please add you signature on talk pages by writing ~~~~ . 65kid (talk) 20:00, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Confusion in new Installation section

See [mixed systemd/initscripts] which teaches that to run a mixed systemd/initscripts setup, one should install systemd-sysvcompat but doing this will remove initscripts.

% sudo pacman -S systemd-sysvcompat
