[SOLVED] BYOI with Calamares

Post by Zero »

I'm trying to use archiso to build an installable live clone of the current system. I'm referencing Erik's excellent BYOI series as well as other sources. As I want it to be installable, I naturally want to have Calamares installed - and here lies my confusion: Calamares is NOT in any of the repositories - neither Arch, nor AUR, nor Arcolinux - so I'm not sure how I'm meant to include it. I've checked Erik's package.both file, and it is indeed on that list. If I include it on my package.both file however, the build fails with 'target not found'.
Do I need to build it locally? If so, where can I find Arcolinux's config files (branding etc) for it?

Yep - found it after you'd pointed me in the right direction. Thanks again.
