Hi. You accidentally removed most of the content on the [[Beginners' Guide/Installation]] with [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Beginners%27_Guide%2FInstallation&action=historysubmit&diff=148104&oldid=146869 these changes] so I rolled it back. I was going to replace the old section on the page with yours, but I realized that the core install CD will still have to use the old rc.conf syntax before being updated. I kept your replacement section at [[Talk:Beginners' Guide/Installation]] for now (where we can figure out what to do). Not sure what a proper solution is, since the netinstall will have the new syntax (I think). [[User:Thestinger|thestinger]] 01:09, 4 July 2011 (EDT)

:Hey. Was no accident.  Good point about the ISO not reflecting the changes though.  On the other hand, as soon as the user updates the system, these new changes will be affecting the system.  Perhaps best to leave the new info in the guide with a note about a first update?

It's not the exact udev rule, but placing the user in the 'power' group, and invoking the shutdown option works for me. This can be reversed by removing the user for the power group, logging out and back in, and invoking the shutdown option again. Now, the box does not go down; xbmc just exits. So functionally, that udev rule is not needed. [[User:Graysky|Graysky]] ([[User talk:Graysky|talk]]) 10:44, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Hey, I've just undone [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Pacman&diff=next&oldid=179383 this edit] since it breaks style consistency: I think that we must make such choices globally, and not arbitrarily having some code with prompts and some other without. The current [[Help:Style|style guidelines]] mention the use of prompts, so this problem should be discussed in [[Help talk:Style]] first, agreed? :) -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 12:14, 22 January 2012 (EST)

It's me again :) I appreciate what you're doing on the wiki, but, as you're one of the most active contributors, I'd like to ask you to use the Summary field in editor pages, just above the Save page button, to explain the ''what'' and ''why'' of your edits, since there are users like me who patrol the recent changes, and it's much more difficult and time consuming to check an unexplained edit than an explained one.

Revision as of 21:42, 9 June 2013

Could you add linux-uksm-ck in your source?

XBMC shutdown/reboot polkit rules

I undid your modification to the XBMC page, as the polkit rule that enabes poweroff and rebooting when using the systemd service is not present in the current package, as you implied in your modification comment. You can check yourself here. Any reason you thought it was? I added a bug report mentioning this issue here. --Palmaway (talk) 03:31, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

It's not the exact udev rule, but placing the user in the 'power' group, and invoking the shutdown option works for me. This can be reversed by removing the user for the power group, logging out and back in, and invoking the shutdown option again. Now, the box does not go down; xbmc just exits. So functionally, that udev rule is not needed. Graysky (talk) 10:44, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

I pasted this on the xbmc page in case others have comments. Thanks for bringing it up. Graysky (talk) 10:45, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Unfortunately, this does not work for the systemd service, at least not on some systems. A good idea to post it there. I replyed there and modified a it the XBMC page too.

I don't use the service so I can't comment. If what you say is true than I agree that it's a good idea to keep the tip. Maybe qualify it with some text describing your observation. Graysky (talk) 21:42, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
