[archuseriso] Build Live USB with persistent storage support

Hi,

Archuseriso provides additional Archiso configurations (Wiki link) for building your own live medium with persistent storage support. Live images are very fast thanks to zstd compression.

System updates, user data and settings are all saved to the persistent partition. Persistence supports package synchronization pacman -Syu, including kernel and initramfs updates.

Desktop environments available :

  • Console, english only

  • Cinnamon

  • Deepin

  • Gnome

  • Kde

  • Mate

  • Xfce

A build option is available to change the default language. Currently 8 different languages are supported : en (default), de, es, fr, it, pt, ru, tr.

User may customize configurations and change the default packages included in the iso build or add his own pre-built binary packages.

Install archuseriso available on the AUR.

To build the Kde iso (Plasma), the build is quite fast:

sudo aui-mkiso kde

Remove the 'work' directory when done. The iso image is generated in the 'out' directory.

To build the Gnome iso with default language set to Spanish:

sudo aui-mkiso gnome -l es

To create a Live USB with persistent storage support, command synopsis:

aui-mkpersistent <usb device> <iso image>

Example with iso image archuseriso-kde-1130-x64.iso:

sudo aui-mkpersistent /dev/sdc archuseriso-kde-1130-x64.iso

iso images are also available for download, see the project's home page at Github.
