Re: [trinity-devel] Archlinux - systemd will cause challenges for Trinity

I think the problem is not the startup scripts, because initscripts
are still compatible, but that HAL has finally gone the way of the
Dodo. I follow the hal package in the AUR and it seems that it hasn't
been working for some time.

As for systemd, most distros, for better or worse, are switching to
it. Ubuntu is, OpenSuse and the lot use it, as well as ArchLinux.
Might be something to be at least aware of.

Good to see you still around,
