I'm fairly new to Arch-Linux so maybe this Question is a little bit ridiculous. If I boot the "Live-CD" of Arch-Linux, I see which services are successfully started, indicated by a green [OK] message.

After installing Arch-Linux I only get a blank Screen till the login-prompt appears.

What should I do to display these messages again?
