I just wanted to report that scripts initiated through the 'script=' boot parameter isn't automatically started anymore on the latest stable iso(2012-08-04), since the following archiso file needs amending:


In that file the script is set to be run from .bash-profile, but the newest iso's use zsh by default and hence, dosen't source .bash_profile...

When from the zsh-prompt is running 'bash -l', then the script runs, as .bash_profile is sourced...

A quick fix, is just to echo the startupscript to .zprofile instead, or maybe to both .zprofile and .bash_profile to cover all situations...

Thanks in advance!

This task depends upon
