We will now create a new github project called ARISER (AA).

AA stands or Arch and Alis. We did a name change from AA to ARISER. Remember that when you watch the videos.

We separate the creation the Arch Linux iso from the Alis project. In the future we can add other things to the Arch Linux like say the Larbs project.

We go over the building script and talk about the code.

It is not a bad idea to have a -dev version yourself

  • The tutorial progresses to integrating specific configurations and packages into the Arch Linux ISO, distinguishing the Arch Linux building process from other projects.
  • Separation of Arch Linux creation from projects like Alis is emphasized, highlighting the flexibility of adding various elements to the Arch Linux ISO.
  • A new repository, AA (Arch and Alis), is created to document the process of including Alis in the Arch Linux build, providing a template for integrating other projects in the future.
  • Maintenance files and releases are prepared and shared, ensuring that essential files for the Arch Linux and Alis integration are accessible for future reference.
  • The building process of ISOs is revisited, leveraging existing scripts and incorporating Alis into the Arch Linux framework, demonstrating the continuity of building practices.
  • Custom configurations and packages are added to the build, including a focus on making specific files executable and adding essential packages like Git to the ISO.
  • Date and version tracking is implemented, recording the build time and version within the ISO for clarity and maintenance purposes.
  • Nanorc configuration is highlighted for its importance in enhancing readability and editing experience in the live environment, showing how to include it in the build.
  • The final steps of building the ISO are outlined, detailing the execution of scripts that compile the customized Arch Linux ISO with Alis, culminating in the creation of checksums and package lists for distribution.
  • The process concludes with pushing the completed script and configurations to the internet, making the creation script for AA publicly available, encouraging further exploration and customization by users.

Booting and virtual machines

VirtualBox and VMware designate drives as /dev/sda, while Qemu identifies them as /dev/vda.

Alternatively, opting for 'auto' allows the script to automatically select the appropriate option.

Grub is compatible with both BIOS and UEFI systems.

Refind and systemd are exclusively compatible with UEFI environments. (Configure your virtual machine to match these requirements)

We manage our githubs with two scripts. Use them as a template but change them. Download here.
