systemd prevents /usr from being on its own partition ?

Hi

I've been trying to install arch ... followed the guide and everything went fine until I rebooted the system and then I got this message:

"root device mounted successfully but /bin/systemd does not exist"

I rebooted on live cd and chrooted to the setup and found that  /bin/systemd is a symlink to /usr/lib/systemd/systemd

and since I have a separate partition for /usr it seems that this is not gonna work unless there are some workarounds I don't know about.

did anybody encounter this situation ? are there any workarounds ?

Separate partition for /usr is not supported, basically. This has been the case since last year at least (everything is a symlink to /usr/* nowadays).

I recall seeing workarounds, but would not be familiar with those. Do a search.

gnu/linux is moving away from being unix-like,
the old unix philosophy was deemed outdated & not worthy hence the new monolithic approach with logic-less config files wink
it's all good though.

@t0m5k1: In how far does this help with using a seperate /usr partition?

Get a blog and put this stuff there. The forums aren't for opinion pieces.

This. Separate /usr is still supported, you just have to mount it from the initramfs as explained in this link.
