https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hello, After last pacman upgrade rsyslog refused to start.This also caused boot problems - systemd would go into infinite loop trying to start rsyslog and failing miserably.I've disabled rsyslog.service from chroot environment and booted from disk - it helped.I've also noticed that latest package version (  rsyslog-7.2.6-4-x86_64)  does not ship with /etc/rsyslog.conf, soupgrading to it removes this file which is why rsyslog refused to start Downgrading, copying file elsewhere and moving it back to /etc/rsyslog.conf is a simple workaround.Previous package versions had this (HowTos)
