I think I’m going to call it a spin . . .

  • Install the package archiso from the official repos or archiso-git from the AUR
  • $ mkdir ~/<build-directory>
    • Replace <build-directory> with wherever you want the iso build to be stored. This is where we’ll be spending all of our time configuring. Mine is at ~/liveiso/ and that’s the path I’ll be using in this and future posts
  • $ sudo cp -r /usr/share/archiso/configs/releng/ ~/liveiso
  • Edit ~/liveiso/packages.x86_64 to install desired software
    • This will be addressed in the next post, packages.x86_64, where I also give some quick ways to install everything you might want.
