I think he is talking about Xorg's new Input hotplugging, i think it should be disabled by default in Arch.

Yeah...  Feature requests in the bug tracker are the best approach these days.

Re: Suggestions for Installer improvements?

Don't know if this has been said but make the installer work for < 192MB of RAM!

I installed Arch on the laptop I'm typing this on, but had to use messy workarounds to get it installing because it only has 128MB RAM and the installer would crash spitting out some non-informative error message. The system itself however (using xfce with compositing, firefox, OpenOffice.org 3.0) works like a damn charm. I currently got six tabs open, listening to music coming from a youtube-video and it's still fully responsive. To be honest, the software runs so well I suspect it's magic. So having an installer which needs < 192MB would be awesome.

edit: Just read somewhere that a lowmem-install has already been (re)implemented in the newest archlive ISO. Nice!

When I select an alternate keyboard layout in the installer, it reverts back to QWERTY after installation and I must manually set it again.  Also, setting the keyboard layout with km only works under the 'root' account, it has no effect under the 'arch' account.

And because of that I am closing this thread.  It is too difficult for the releng team to keep track of all the suggestions made here.
