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.
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.

After creating our carli-calamares-config we want to see what this config will do to our live system. First we use meld to compare Carli 4 with Carli 5 to quickly see what we have done until now. We build a new Carli. Calamares will not boot up by default. If you want...
We created a branding for our Calamares. We want to see how it looks right now. First we need to commit our config to the github. Then we create a PKGBUILD for carli-calamares-config. We use one of the pkgbuilds from ArcoLinux to get some kind of start. We will change...
Start by opening this url and read it. Configs and version of calamares go hand in hand Follow the configs and settings present in the version of Calamares you choose The settings.conf file is going to be the file that will tell Calamares what to do first. It defines...
