LEARNING PATH

You have been learning about Arch Linux and ArcoLinux via the 5 phases in our project. At some point in time you may wish to build your own distro/iso and start building it up from scratch. That is phase 6.

We advise you to start in the menu “Start here” and work your way down the menu.

The article “Goal and vision” will clarify what we aim for with the Carli project.

At the moment we are still thinking how to organize all the articles. We will change the structure as the project grows.

Check out the story line in the Carli menu.

Each month we will try to make another step in order to develop our own distro.
