Learning phase 6
CARLI = Customized arch linux iso
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.

The file build.sh is the most important file. We have compared this file in a separate video. Next we build the iso and since we have time to spare during building we make an new package for yay-bin ckbcomp and put the new packages on our repo. They will be included...
During our holiday months July and August of 2020 we get not one but two updates in. As always we need to follow up anything that happens to this application and adjust our scripts to it (if we want). It is our goal to stay as close as possible to the Arch Linux iso...
In this video we update two packages calamares yay-bin There is NO NEED to use the very latest calamares every time. That is a choice. As long as you can install your operating system with an old version, there is really no need. However the Calamares code improves...
