First of all, there is a significant difference between the terminals types rxvt and unicode-rxvt (often abbreviated to urxvt). You have indicated that the terminal you are using is "URXVT Version 9.22", so to avoid confusion, please use the correct name which is not rxvt but urxvt. As Mikel has pointed out, the Xresources file is telling urxvt to use the ...

As @Leiaz very correctly pointed out in the comments, /sbin in Arch (and by extension, Manjaro) is now a symlink to /usr/bin. This means that unless /usr is mounted, /usr/sbin/init will not exist. You therefore need to make sure that /usr is mounted by the initial ramdisk. That's what the Arch wiki quote in your OP means: If you keep /usr as a separate ...

After doing this, ...

The problem was that I followed tutorials on the web and youtube videos, instead of reading manjaro wiki. The correct way of doing it is not to install virtualbox virtualbox-host-modules, instead of that, first I should check kernel version uname -r in my case I'm using 3.16.7.10-1-MANJARO so I have to do sudo pacman -S linux316-virtualbox-host-modules As ...

GNU libc (and thus any non-embedded Linux), reads /etc/localtime to determine the system's time zone (the default timezone if not overridden by the TZ environment variable or by an application-specific setting). *BSD does the same thing.
