2 Creation of Carli 9

We compare the contents of the latest releng (48) to our Carli 9 content.

We build the Carli iso and change mkarchiso settings in order to be more verbose.

We test out our Carli iso and show you

  • how to start calamares in debugging mode
  • where the archiso folder resides (/run folder)
  • where the future system is being built (/tmp folder)
  • where the calamares log file is (/root/.cache)

For the moment we can still use customize_airootfs. 
That will change in one of the next archiso versions.

The just for fun section

Let us create a Carli xfce.

Autologin in Xfce is defined in /etc/sddm folder.

Let us create an Arch Linux iso even though it is not out yet on the Arch Linux website

Carli Github sources

Carli is a story that we have documented over the months and years. You could bingewatch from Carli 1 till the last one and you will get an idea what changes we made and what challenges we faced. Surely we will face similar challenges in the future. But then you need to solve it yourself. Problemsolving and analyzing is what we focus on in the videos.

You can find all the code on https://github.com/arcolinuxiso.

With github you can look at all the changes (called commits) we have made over the years. You will also find our repository, Calamares configuration and our pkgbuilds online.
