trimming of the arch iso
« on: February 20, 2020, 03:25:25 PM »
ok everyone the arch community has trimmed a few essentials from the arch iso and the manual page has been updated to reflect this which pretty much render's your arch install video null and void spatry here the pasted update too the iso and other things dropped from it.

Install essential packages

Use the pacstrap script to install the base package, Linux kernel and firmware for common hardware:

# pacstrap /mnt base linux linux-firmware


Tip: You can substitute linux for a kernel package of your choice. You can omit the installation of the kernel or the firmware package if you know what you are doing.

The base package does not include all tools from the live installation, so installing other packages may be necessary for a fully functional base system. In particular, consider installing:

To install other packages or package groups, append the names to the pacstrap command above (space separated) or use pacman while chrooted into the new system. For comparison, packages available in the live system can be found in packages.x86_64.
