Lack of internet connection using static ip address without netcfg or NetworkManager
See [A pure systemd installation] it instructs to remove the initscripts package. When doing so take care not to use the -s option of pacman with -R as it removes the iproute2 package also unless you have another package with iproute2 as a dependency.
pacman -R initscripts pacman -Rn initscripts
Not safe when iproute2 will also be removed:
pacman -Rs initscripts pacman -Rns initscripts
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.
- This is a general problem that needs to be solved in the display manager. GDM already implements the bits for the CanGraphical flag.
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.

Hibernation with Systemd
The hibernation section should be considered a hack since Systemd does not directly handle the backend that handles power management. Systemd uses the Upower interface to handle such requests
