[CLOSED] Help me creating my own Distribution called VarcoLinux :)

Post by Cyberdelique » Wed Nov 13, 2019 3:37 pm

Hi guys,
I need a bit of help here.
I'm trying to do my own version of arcolinux, but I have some questions.

First here is my intent:
create a arco edition dedicated to virtualisation, with a base system pretty light, but with Libvirt enabled by default, and a VM of arcolinux-ISO and ubuntu préinstalled, and that I can launch from the USB stick (one stick for the liveUSB one other USB stick were are the VM's hard drives files.

So, my idea was to take arcolinuxB-i3, tweak it by removing some apps and installing some more, but I'm not a script genius, and have some difficulties tweaking them.

Up to this point, I was able to add/remove software to my liking and preconfigure i3 as I wish.

Now, to the questions:

- I really would like being able to launch my VM"s from the live environement.
but for that, I need to add the liveuser to KVM group so,
how can I change the default groups of the live user?

- I would like to enable AUR by default, so that I can have preinstalled some apps, that are there (mainly NoMachine)
how can I do that?

I'm sure I'll have other questions along the way, but if somebody can answer those ones or point me to good reads on that matter, that would help me greatly.
I know how to do those things once installed but how do that BEFORE writing the ISO? should I look into archISO more?

thanks in advance
cheers from Brussels
Vital

Thanks but I know that Erik, I'm following you on youtube, but I can't browse more than a thousand videos and articles to find a one line answer...

let me simplifie my question:
before creating my ISO
- how do I add liveuser to specific group (KVM and NX in my case) so that, when I boot the livecd the default user is allready part of those groupŝ?
what file do I have to edit?

- how do I enable services, so that thoses services are allready started in livecd?

- is the AUR allready activated in livecd so that i can add AUR softs (I would li,e to replace variety with variety-git because the repo version does'nt work
with wallheaven.cc :/

For now, I do all those things with a post install script, but I would like to have it working from the live environement.

thanks
Vital

1 airootfs - check out our files on github
2. airootfs
3. you can not - you install the packages from AUR from your own repo - ours is arcolinux_repo_iso

Thanks, I found what I was looking for.
For futur me and those who wonder, I have modified ./archiso/airootfs/root/customize_airootfs.sh
where the default groups, name, and starting services are located among all the other things happening at boot of the liveCD.

thanks, topic closed
