> Transition from vc/* to tty* standard
> With the update to initscripts-2009.07, we are transitioning from the 
> old vc/* style devices to the current standard of tty*.  This transition 
> involves updates to the filesystem, initscripts, syslog-ng and udev 
> packages. As always, users should update all packages at the same time 
> rather than individual packages.
> The initscripts update requires adjusting the /etc/inittab file to refer 
> to tty* instead of vc/*.  Due to severe system breakages if this file is 
> not updated, this will be automatically handled by pacman.  The original 
> /etc/inittab file is saved as /etc/inittab.pacsave.  However, it is 
> important that all users check the changes made to this file (and even 
> better, completely merge the .pacnew file).
