to make archlinux boot nicely, there are some modifications on the init scripts needet. first create a /etc/init.d dir and add a new file /etc/init.d/rc with content: [code] if [ $1 -eq 3 ]; then echo "entering runlevel 3:multi"; /etc/rc.multi fi if [ $1 -eq 6 ]; then echo "entering runlevel 6:reboot"; /etc/rc.shutdown fi if [ $1 -eq 0 ]; then echo "entering runlevel 0: shutdown"; /etc/rc.shutdown fi if [ $1 -eq 4 ]; then echo "entering runlevel 4"; fi if [ $1 -eq 5 ]; then echo "entering runlevel 5"; fi if [ $1 -eq 1 ]; then echo "entering runlevel 1:single"; /etc/rc.single fi if [ $1 -eq 2 ]; then echo "entering runlevel 2:multi"; /etc/rc.multi fi [/code] this script starts the right init-scripts for the runlevels. you now should be able to boot up your archlinux guest system. but there are some more work to get around all these warning and error messages on bootup. you need to remove all that has to do with kernel, driver and networking. on archlinux edit /etc/rc.conf and remove networking and syslog-ng (syslog-ng will not work) from DAEMONS. edit /etc/rc.shutdown and comment out below and including [b]stat_busy "Saving Random Seed"[/b]

have fun with you archlinux guest and feel free to improve the rc script :)
