Arch Linux Moves Forward With Systemd
The latest monthly snapshot of the Arch Linux rolling release install meda is now using systemd rather than SysVinit for booting up the system.
Arch Linux 2012.10.06 was released this weekend as the latest install media for this increasingly popular rolling-release distribution that's used by many Linux enthusiasts. With this October install media, systemd is now being used following the Arch Linux systemd plans that were laid back in August.
Aside from moving to the new init system, the Arch Linux 2012.10.06 release are changes to the handling of initscripts, simplified EFI boot and setup, Gummiboot is used for displaying menus on EFI systems, and there's new packages on the Arch Linux live system.
The new Arch Linux packages in the live mode include ethtool, fsarchiver, gummiboot-efi, mc, partclone, partimage, refind-efi, rfkill, sudo, testdisk, wget, and xl2tpd.
