• Request of a new package in Antergos repo


    Hi all!
    i want to ask the @developers if possible to add Antergos archiso(with your own customizations) since i made an Antergos version with the arch one.
    I was planning to add cnchi installer to it and tried to look at @joekamprad build.sh files from nvidia iso version, but the vanilla file is too different from antergos’s for me to fix/adapt.
    So i think that is a very nice feature if you add your own archiso package, that would allow manny new “comunnity versions”

    That way i could simply copy Antergos “Releng” folder and start building again.

    OBS: I’m making an iso with i3wm+offline_installer+others_funcionlities. I wanted to add cnchi online installer now.

  • This file has what you’re looking for I believe. Perhaps you could stick this in your ISO?

    P.S. Although, I will admit that just adding your archiso to the Antergos repo would be so much simpler for everyone:grinning:. It would be great if this could be done!

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

  • @Keegan The commands from the link you gave me and from vanilla build.sh are so different. it simply won’t work with the files i already have.
    That’s why an Antergos releng folder is necessary to me, i can then add my folders and files there. Just for example archiso use airootfs folder while antergos uses root-image, only this change in the name is enough to block the build.sh to go on. The file structure is different as well…

  • Ahh… Thank you! I must have misunderstood your original post.

  • Hi,

    Have you checked this?

    https://github.com/antergos/antergos-iso/tree/testing

    And this?

    https://github.com/Antergos/antergos-i3-setup

    By the way, an offline installer is against Antergos “philosophy”. This means that we won’t support your iso, I’m afraid, but of course you’re free to do it (that’s the beauty of free software).

    Cheers!

    What do you mean by that? Perhaps it’s because I’m newer here, but I’m a bit confused…

    Yes i looked at this link before, but i don’t understand what is what :( (the files are very different from archiso) Anyway i guess i’ll have to look better those links when i have more time, i saw some instructions down the page.

    And this?

    https://github.com/Antergos/antergos-i3-setup

    Yes, probably is the one i’m using in my real pc while my iso is not ready. I like very much the customizations i did, so i’m not looking for an i3-setup right now.

    That’s ok, i talked with you already and i totally understand. The only thing i really want now is to add cnchi to work in case someone wants to use my iso to install antergos. The problem is that my iso is virtually ready but i can’t port with your configs.

    Yesterday i was thinking about adding a script for online install, at least will replace cnchi for now.

    So my request remains open: What about an antergos archiso package? (that will simplify everything)

    As always i thank you very much for the time reading this post and answering me.
    Cheers!

    My problem is that I do not understand why you need a specific archiso package, when there is already one in Arch extra.

    If you want to do it the arch way, use archiso, if you want to do it the Antergos way, you have to use antergos-iso (github). There is a mkarchiso script in that repository that is a fork from the original mkarchiso from Arch.

    Believe me, using our setup is really easy. Just check the configs folder.

    What do you mean by that? Perhaps it’s because I’m newer here, but I’m a bit confused…

    We at Antergos think that the user should end installation with the latest version of all packages. In our oppinion, It makes no sense to install an old system from the live CD/USB and then download the updates and install them (that’s what an offline installer does).

    The only advantatge is that an offline installer will work even if you don’t have an Internet connection.

    Cheers!

    Thank you very much for your explanation:slight_smile:. Now that I understand your reasoning, it makes more sense.

    Hey karasu, i’m sorry if i brought unecessary discussion here.
    I managed to build the Antergos github simply copying/pasting the commands from the instructions there, pretty easy really (i didn’t have time before and thought it would be too hard to build it, sorry)
    If you want you can delete this entire post.
    Anyway i’m kinda satisfied, now i can play with both Arch and Antergos build.sh muahahaha :P

  • Just out of curiosity, what are you guys changing in your versions? I mean, if you install Antergos base, you can pretty much build what you want with a simple script after that?

    I make things work…
    My humble wiki: https://anotherlinux.com/

  • For me, it’s including more DE’s and WM’s for download. My ISO contains Deepin, Budgie, i3, and Enlightenment available for installment within Cnchi. (Along with the traditional choices of Gnome, KDE, Openbox, etc. of course). @fernandomaroto’s goal is vastly different than mine, so I will wait for him to tell you that one ;).

    I appreciate your curiosity and interest in our work. Thank you!

    Hi!
    Well at first i wanted to discover how to install offline any linux distribution; i discovered how to do that. I learned a lot studying Pacbang script and looking some youtube videos from “midfingr” about build custom isos.
    I’m also using i3-wm for some time here i and took the oportunity to test new things, like new file managers, pkexec, firejail, and even create a hack way to implement the xfce/openbox dynamic menu inside i3-wm.

    So at the end i’d say my .iso is a very customizated i3-wm with offline instaler (and i’ll add an online installer and maybe cnchi as well).
    It’s also both 32 and 64 bits, the iso is about 1.7GB now, not sure if i can reduce it’s size hehehe.
    I’ll start studying syslinux to add a bootloader option beyond grub2.

  • Hi,

    Have we found a new maintainer for an i3 community edition? :grin:

    If not, could you at least share your “very customizated i3-wm” setup with us?

    Thanks!

  • @karasu I will as soon as i create an account on sourceforge and lear how to upload there.
    You probaby won’t like @karasu hehehe, because i’m very dependent on easystroke instead of keyboard shortcuts
