== NVMe module in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf ==
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)

Just an question about your last edit on [[Solid State Drives/NVMe]], is it really needed to add {{ic|nvme}} as module to {{ic|/etc/mkinitcpio.conf}}?
: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?

I'm booting just fine on a NVMe that's uses luks + ext4, without including the module. The NVMe is also correctly loaded with the archiso.

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.

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.

NVMe module in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf

Just an question about your last edit on Solid State Drives/NVMe, is it really needed to add nvme as module to /etc/mkinitcpio.conf? I'm booting just fine on a NVMe that's uses luks + ext4, without including the module. The NVMe is also correctly loaded with the archiso. Thanks.

I could not boot without it. Graysky (talk) 10:44, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
Very strange, are you using the default kernel? See you're are using GRUB instead of systemd-boot, are you sure the bootloader is configured correctly? Could you try with systemd-boot? Francoism (talk) 13:25, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes, using the default kernel or a custom one and grub. I haven't tried using systemd-boot since I depend on having other entries in grub and am too lazy to see if they can be applied with alternatives. Graysky (talk) 13:37, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
