I still get a "No such file or directory" because of these two lines in rc.sysinit

I'm just stopping in here to say that I'm gussing your problem stems from the change form vc's to tty's. Other than that, I don't have much of an idea, except trying just to use

/dev/tty${i}

I would try playing with that, if that's not a crucial section to rc.sysinit, but I don't really know too much about it, might want to wait for somebody to tell you that's a horrible idea before trying it

Edit: And, shouldn't that first thing have a leading slash? /usr/...? Like so:

/usr/bin/kbd_mode -u < /dev/tty${i}
        printf "\e%%G" > /dev/tty${i}

Re: 2 days of tweaking for a faster boot time

Edit: Mistook you for someone else. You could have probably fixed it by just mounting it and overwriting the changes you made, couldn't you?

Re: 2 days of tweaking for a faster boot time

You could download the initscripts package (if that's all you need, from a cursory glance I think yes), extract it manually, and copy over the files you need, if you really can't chroot it. Do these modifications mess it up that bad? It's pretty easy to get the package even without pacman, for instance

wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/archlinux/core/os/i686/initscripts-2009.08-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz

Works with any mirror, as far as I know.

Re: 2 days of tweaking for a faster boot time

Interesting. I get a boot time from grub to console in 14 seconds without any tweaking at all. And that's on a netbook. I wonder what kinds of ridiculous boot times I could get out of it with tweaking.

Re: 2 days of tweaking for a faster boot time

Well, I tried it again, and it seems rc.sysinit is problematic. It sticks on fsck check, even my partitions all seem to be clean. It's booting with the default rc.sysinit. Please?

Re: 2 days of tweaking for a faster boot time

Try making changes a tiny bit at a time and see what exactly breaks.

Re: 2 days of tweaking for a faster boot time

Be smart enough and don't copy the scripts from the first post nor the one from the wiki directly, they are more than 1 year old and most is probably not compatible with the current scripts.

I've done this step-by-step too, you could see improvements on boot time with one change and the opposite the next. Just plain ol' trial and error. At least you get a faster boot speed and it is most likely more stable than stuff like quick-init.

i made my arch boot much faster than before by:
1. recompile kernel, lots of modules removed, fast boot option turned on(zen sources)
2. setting network manually
3. edit xinitab
4. remove some daemons and some modules loading uneeded

the process was not hard
anyway
the result:
before: boot up took about 35-40 secs
now: boot up takes 10-13 secs
unbelievable
arch powa!!

Could you perhaps walk me through how to do this?
