Image updates for Arch Linux

  • Posted November 5, 2012

Since Arch Linux is moving from initscripts to systemd ( https://www.archlinux.org/news/end-of-initscripts-support/ ) it would be great to update your Arch Linux droplet image. ;)

To upgrade your arch image: Here is a small guide, where i have written down all steps i have done for my image. Especially the steps in ‘update-steps.sh’ are important: https://gist.github.com/thomasfr/8665985#file-update-steps-sh <br> <br>Maybe this helps <br>cheers

Please also update the image to a newer kernel and netctl instead of netcfg per default. If possible i would really like to help out on this! <br>cheers

Couldn’t get new arch linux droplet working.

Would really appreciate this since right now it seems to be impossible to get a Arch setup booting natively with systemd, which has been the default configuration for a while now and is a much better option than sysvinit.

There are currently no updates on Arch Linux images unfortunately.

is there anybody out there?

Is there any chance of upgrading the Arch image? <br> <br>It’s been a long, long, long time…

I’m considering signing up, but does a full pacman still bork the drop?

+1 <br> <br>Running a full pacman will nuke your drop :)

Another +1 for this, systemd has been the default in arch for almost a year now. Things will only get more out of date…
