Installation Guide - ArchWiki
I needed to do the following, in addition to the given instructions.

* pacman -S btrfs-progs (for btrfsck)
* add

keymaps 0-15
keycode 58 = Control

to /etc/

then KEYMAP=/etc/ to /etc/vconsole.conf (I think this works without blowing away the whole rest of the keymap)

* add BINARIES="btrfsck" to /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
* add btrfs and keymap to HOOKS

The Arch Challenge Made Me Completely Convert to Linux : LinuxActionShow
"While playing games using wine, sometimes the screen stays at odd resolution. The solution for me was to create a script (xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode myresolution) and call it using the terminal or add it to the last line of a script that launches the game."
