11 Testing out the new Calamares config in VirtualBox

After creating our carli-calamares-config we want to see what this config will do to our live system.

First we use meld to compare Carli 4 with Carli 5 to quickly see what we have done until now.

We build a new Carli.

Calamares will not boot up by default. If you want that you check out this article.

It is available in the menu when you type ‘install’ or in any terminal ‘pkexec calamares -d’.

We are greeted with ‘Carli installer’ because of our changes to branding.desc.

You can omit the buttons like Generic support, Known issues, Release notes.
