It is always the same workflow.

Compare the releng folder coming in from the Archiso package (sometimes also the mkarchiso script).

Decide what you like to include on your future iso with the use of Meld.

Double-check. Triple-check.

Build the iso.

Test the iso.

Let us build the most complex iso with many resources for the packages.

  1. Arch Linux
  2. Alci
  3. ArcoLinux
  4. Chaotic
  5. local repo

We explain the local repository.

You can be in full control. All you need is Arch Linux and Calamares.

Just because we can and just for the fun we change our standard filesystem from ext4 to ext3 and later to ext2.

sudo nano /usr/share/calamares/modules/partition.conf

Other options might be btrfs, jfs, xfs and reiser.

Restart Calamares with calamares_polkit -d.
