I just wanted to share my experience with you. I follow closely the
changes and discussion about systemd and I have to say that in the
first I was worried also that taken away the basic configuration from
rc.conf will be complicated and will cause more pain.
I usually enjoy breaking my computer into a point that I have to spend
2 hours reading the wiki or forums to fix it. Now days though I don't
have much time mainly due to work. Thus I wanted to get ahead of the
migration of initscripts to systemd.
I recently made an Archlinux installation on my laptop so the system
was quite clean. It was the perfect target for systemd migration. I
just installed the systemd and opened up wiki page. I started making
configuration changes to the files replacing entries in rc.conf with
It was quite straight forward if you know your system and refer back
to your rc.conf.
When done I removed the intescripts and rebooted. It was that simple.
Had a bit of glinches as I didn't enable networkmanager from the start
and reboot from inside the gnome didn't work, but now it's all fixed.
I recommend to all to try at least once the systemd migration and then
express opinions. It's really easy.
Maybe it's just my idea but I think the system is somewhat faster on
the booting now.
Just my opinion but as I see initscripts are abandoned and Archlinux
is a bleeding edge distro, it's natural solution to adopt systemd.
+1 from me :)
Disclaimer: this was done on a laptop a very recent installation,
maybe on other more complicated installations it's harder.
