Do you have a brief description of what issue caused the system to break? I am running Arch on my laptop and its good to avoid show-stopping issues when possible.

Edit: I found your previous post here: https://saidit.net/s/Linux/comments/24z/my_scary_doomed_first_openrc_attempt/

I made it slightly farther this time, I had to copy inittab from /etc/openrc to etc. then it booted OK, but it was barely operational. I figured it was a conflict with systemd still starting, so I uninstalled systemd, it seemed to load fast and fine, but I couldn't enter my username or pass.

I tried chrooting into it and reinstalling systemd, but no luck.
