Xorg freezes in larch.
I have built a minimal larch system, with xfce4 as the de. Everytime I try to startxfce4, it starts fine, but NO input to the system is possible. Even ctrl+alt+<F*> doesn't work. I have to coldboot it everytime. I have run 'Xorg -configure', and used the generated configuration file, but to no avail.

Boot into basic terminal mode and run "pacman -Q|grep input". I recall having to specifically install keyboard and mouse drivers but that seems to have been replaced by something called "evdev".

In /etc/X11/xorg.conf I have this:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"

Did you insert "dbus hal" in your daemons array in /etc/rc.conf ?

Thanks shylock, that fixed it. I'm actually posting this from my larch system.
