Thanks all.But, the issue with my machine is that I am not able to switch on the wireless adapter in my laptop. It is controlled using Fn+F2 (my laptop comes with a Fn key. using it with function keys F1....F12 activates several functions. Fn+F2 is for switching on the wireless adapter) .
I think you may need to do a pacman -Syu to update initscripts (see https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=144483). I had the same problem this morning. You should be able to login as root and do it from there.Make sure that the mirror you're using is up to date.
Wait for 1.41-2 to be available on your mirrors or install it by hand. It may fix the conflict: https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit … 47774c5870If it does not, open a bug report.Edit: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/31755 says 1.41-2 fixes this.
