Re: Pacman -Qs initscripts

-Q is query. It should just return information about the package. If you want to install it, that is -S
pacman -Sw packagename
downloads the package, does not install it.

man pacman

Re: Pacman -Qs initscripts

Just following the install instructions in the wiki for Udev.

It seems it is not an install requirement, from what you report.  Guess it doesn't belong as a wiki "install" item.  It may be intended as a pre-requisite but it isn't so stated.

I can only assume that the permissions are default "root" although that statement isn't made initially.

Very confusing, Udev.

Thanks

Re: Pacman -Qs initscripts

I think initscripts might be a requirement..
try pacman -Sy initscripts if that is the case..
maybe someone who knows what they are talking about can chime in with the correct answer..

I too am a bit confused by udev..mostly because my system works now, so I haven't had need to hassle with it yet...yet..

Re: Pacman -Qs initscripts

the initscripts package is part of the Arch base install - it *is* on your system.

The "pacman -Qs initscripts" command is only to verify the version (the wiki states this command used to check initscripts version >= 0.7, similar to uname -r to check kernel version >= 2.6).

As for switching to udev, the requirements are not difficult:
add "devfs=nomount" to the kernel boot parameters, in either lilo.conf or grub/menu.lst.

The wiki also mentions changes to fstab, though I don't recall ever doing this... *shrug*

That should be it - you want to reboot to make sure devfs is unmounted, but after that, you can run /etc/start_udev in order to restart the udev daemon (which will read rules and permissions)

Hopefully you wont have to do much rule/permissions tweaking, assuming your user is part of the audio and optical groups.
