    Download the Ariser iso and boot up

    1. Start the installation by typing this command in the TTY

    alis

    You now have an Arch Linux with Xfce4 – you can stop here or continue with the optional steps.

    2. After rebooting get the nemesis scripts (optional) – Type in a terminal

    get-nemesis-on-ariser

    3. Run script 0-current-choices.sh from the Nemesis folder in ~/DATA. (optional)

    0-current-choices.sh

     

    Want to build your own Ariser ISO?

    1. Get the code to be able to build the iso yourself

    git clone https://github.com/ariser-installer/ariser

    2. Create your own github project online and copy/paste our code in your project. Later you can make small changes when you start experimenting

    git clone https://github.com/ariser-installer/alis

    3. Change the github reference to yours in the build script in AA – around line 170 – see video

    4 . Change the content of alis.conf and alis-packages.conf and always push it to your github

    5. From time to time compare your content with the content of the ALIS project (see this article)
