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.

In this video we will check what elements we need to delete and check the permissions of certain folders. Now we do not need to type in a password to install applications. That may sound interesting but is not wise to keep an your target system. We learn what the...
We need to recheck our Calamares configuration. We forgot to tell Calamares to load the module packages. We show you where we would have found the information IF we had read the text that was available on Calamares. We add a packages.conf to our configuration and...
