Actually that is more complicated than simply running:
# [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=4] systemctl enable dhcpcd@[i]interface[/i].service

I don't know, man. All that UBBcode was pretty complicated looking to me. ;)

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

Interesting that the wired protocol didn't "stick" from installation. When I was installing Arch a short while ago on my old desktop, I was able to enable the USB wifi on the install CD and do the whole installation with wireless. As far as I can remember the wifi worked after I had the system installed and rebooted.
ETA: No I did get the wifi working on the installer manually so I did the install OK but - on reboot I had to install dhclient and use that to get an automatic wifi connection every time with netctl.

Wow! That systemd sure is complicated. To enable networking using SysVinits, I would just do this:

# chmod -R 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager

And that's it. Off to the races... :yes:


Just yankin' you Archbois' chains, you know. ;)
Please don't say that systemd is complicated in the same sentence you mention using NetworkManager for the same task.
systemd is simplicity and clarity exemplified compared to NetworkManager.

Tweak it 'til it breaks, then learn how to fix it.
