[solved] How to add files to home dir of custom archiso

Until recently I could create a custom Arch install ISO using archiso, and ensure that certain files were available in the install ISO user's home dir by placing them in

<archlive>/airootfs/etc/skel/

As suggested at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ar … s_to_image. However, after https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/ … equests/71 was merged the skel dir in the ISO is no longer used for the root user. Since the root user is the only user normally used in the install ISO this change is pretty confusing to me.

Is this new behavior correct, is it a bug? If it's the correct behavior, what's the new recommended way to make files available in the install environment?

I've just been putting them in "<archlive>/airootfs/root/". It seems  a lot more straight-forward than using skel, if you're not creating users on your live iso.

Ah putting them into "<archlive>/airootfs/root" works, thanks! I'll see if I can update the wiki
