Apparently even now mainline Manjaro users who do know about init sytems and want to eliminate systemd don't know about Manjaro OpenRC. I submit NickStone as proof it needs much better publicity and obviousness on Manjaro's website. I'm looking forward to the changes promised by philm.

I am 100% agree with Tailor, we are very scarce in the diffusion of OpenRC Manjaro branch.
Right now I would like to try an installation of Manjaro-Mate-OpenRC 15.09

Any chance in future to get an Openrc KDE iso or a complete kde iso-profile?


Already exists.
All profiles, except gnome, can be built with either init.
Have a look at profile.conf.
Technically, you can even build the gnome profile with openrc, but gnome won't work properly, due to the fact that gnome only works with systemd.

What I believe this Community Forum needs is one central ISO-downloads Page of latest compiled releases.
My main reasoning is that Manjaro has a pile of Community editions.
And these Distro-ISO's are all split up in Sourceforge too.

Something sorta like weekly builds history of new ISO-Distros.

This I believe will help everyone easily locate newer editions of their favorite desktop enviroments.

I was getting an Error in 'running build hook [plymouth]'

I removed 'plymouth' from mkinitcpio.conf

that worked  :)

Just an observation.  I've been around the block, Linux wise.  Used to be an Init depended upon the original, like Debian and all other versions ran the same thing.  I like the idea of OpenRC and have finally adopted it for my own computer.  However, there have been some glitches so now I run Stable and Testing on the same machine.  I cannot afford to have a breakdown even though testing is usually stable and ahead of stable in upgrades.  I tried using Cinnamon desktop and it seemed more of a bother than sticking with Xfce.  I have no problem finding what I need for OpenRC, but then I am rather experienced when it comes to ISO and installing.  Keep up the good work and don't worry so much about getting the news out there.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/manjaro-lxqt-openrc/files/manjaro-15.09/

I'm getting an md5 mismatch on this file; downloaded two separate times.

manjaro-lxqt-minimal-openrc-15.09-x86_64.iso

Also, the iso will boot to desktop and then crash.

Hm. The uploaded md5 file and SF-info are identical:  95a037ed216ce3a14ec30dd01c7ecfc7
It must be your download...
Have you tried with rsync or filezilla? That way you can resume your downloads ...
Hostaddress for Filezilla is: frs.sourceforge.net
remote site you have to set to:  /home/pfs/project/m/ma/manjaro-lxqt-openrc/manjaro-15.09/lxqt-minimal-openrc
manjaro is addictive ::)
* manjaro-i3  * manjaro-cinnamon  * manjaro-deepin

I'm able to download the kde file without issues but not lxqt.

Did you download the "manjaro-lxqt-minimal-openrc-15.09-x86_64.iso" from SF and verify?

Worry about it. The way to solve glitches is a larger test base. The way to a larger test base is more users. The way to more users is easier access.

Its not like panic is necessary ... but a note to self ... is to make OpenRC my primary interest ... its the struck match of my whole OS ... and SystemD has a wide support of the majority of the popular distributions, ...theres no competition,but our OpenRC partners are Devuan and Gentoo .. a user base that will be more experienced,but still a smaller pool.

In the case mentioned if we had our own updates and not depend on Manjaro as a whole, then that might be possible.  "Theoretically."  To make this accessable to the general public you need your own forum and more problem solvers.  At this time @Philm does not have the people or time to make that happen.  He has made this abundantly clear.  I turned on Testing to help out, but I am limited to what I can accomplish when I Crash and Burn.  I am not trained in programming, I am trained in the mechanical aspect of computers.  I don't really like SystemD or using so many 32 bit dependencies.  The minute I put two systemd operating systems on my computer there is a conflict.  I could have any number of OpenRC systems and no conflicts.  Yes, it is a good system and yes it should be used by many,  Then look at the lug heads still using MSDOS /windows because it comes on their machines.  Sorry if I touched a nerve.
