OpenRC guide for going systemd free [Work in Progress]

You will a wealth of information here

This guide assumes you are comfortable working in a terminal and for the sake of testing I would recommend running inside a virtual machine (Virtualbox).

In this guide you will be able to convert a stock ArchBang install to OpeRC and remove systemd in the process.

1) Edit /etc/pacman.conf and add the following...

[arch-openrc]
SigLevel  = Never
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist-openrc

[arch-nosystemd]
SigLevel  = Never
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist-openrc

2) Create openrc mirrorlist-openrc

##
## Arch Linux OpenRC repository mirrorlist

Server = http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/archopenrc/$repo/$arch
Server = http://archbang.org/archopenrc/$repo/$arch
Server = ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/sourceforge/a/ar/archopenrc/$repo/$arch

3) Update repos and prepare for OpenRC install

 sudo pacman -Syyu
