The Evolution Linux Project has shifted focus towards a new effort called Makeiso.

Makeiso is currently in the alpha development stage. The script and iso are made available for testing and feedback.

Makeiso will make it easy to duplicate your perfectly customized Arch Linux installation.

The Makeiso script will create a live ISO that will include an all new net-based, guided manual CLI installer.

The newly created live ISO will install an up to date duplicate of your Arch install, or alternatively install a new Arch "base only' system.

  • Create a custom Arch installation .iso, copying the installation it's ran on
  • Easy to install .iso will use derivative of the former Evo/Lution installer.

    a great idea! would be very interessting to install for daily use exactly the same as the iso offers after start as base for more! possible? and I would be very interessting to use it to install gentoo ;-) (or arch) entirely based on sources in the same easy kind as to install arch based on binaries!

    Very good! After getting bored on Ubuntu, I tried many others including mint, lubuntu and LXLE. They were all prtty bloated for my liking so I wanted to try a bare bone install of maybe centOS. But after hearing things about Gentoo and Arch I wanted to try them. Gentoo's documentation was just blocks of text, and even as a "advanced" linux user for 2 years now I couldn't be bothered to do so :p. And that left me Arch, the logo is my favorite out of all the distros because of how modern and flat it looks. But once again the documentation was just WOT. This is very nice installer and can be used for even Linux first timers bacause of the simple menu. One feature that did get on my nerves was the "auto-scroll" after each time i finished a section it was annoying to say the least to have it scroll for me. Overall 9/10- easy to use easy to configure just needs to be better looking the defualt red and blue is not the most apealing colours
