Archlinux - systemd will cause challenges for Trinity

  I apologize for my absence, but economic challenges demanded my time elsewhere
-- and will for the next little while. I wanted to drop a note on Archlinux
changes that impact Trinity. Specifically the massive transition in Arch from an
'initscript' startup to 'systemd'. I have moved a test machine to systemd.
Trinity (hal) does not start when systemd is used. The problem appears to be a
hang on X startup.

  However, initscript behavior can be retained even after the move to systemd
that allows Trinity to continue to run -- flawlessly (3.5.13-SRU). If any other
archer has time, please look into booting to tdm on Arch. Any issues with
systemd/hal should be noted on the hal AUR page. Thanks.

  I will investigate as time permits, but I don't foresee much free time for the
next several months. Keep fighting the good fight.
