Evo is the live CD based on Arch Linux that cannot be installed. It is simply a platform to run the net-based Lution-AIS installer.

Lution-AIS is a powerful and flexible command-line installer that downloads the latest packages from the Arch repositories during installation to provide the most up-to-date system possible.

It can be used to provide just the Arch base alone, or also to provide a large choice of full desktop environments, window managers, display managers, and network managers.

    Good but seems to lack installer for i386 which is required as well Edit : Thanks for releasing the 32bit ISO this time, it was the much needed required version indeed. I tested the 64bit ISO and it worked much better than cnchi from Antergos. If possible adding scripts to Evo/Lution so that the DE/WM of choice gets auto-configured during installation process will be of a great feature e.g a script to auto-configure Openbox during installation with a panel and menu`s working out of box will be a great feature.
