Archbox minimal live iso

Archbox is Arch + Openbox minimal live iso

https://sourceforge.net/projects/archbox/

Features:
Netsurf
xfce4-terminal

And very little else

No Archbox installer is included but I am shipping iso with arch-install-scripts.

At this time I only have xf86-video-vesa and intel video drivers installed

This is very much work in progress, testing under virtualbox is recommended

Very aware of views towards live versions of Arch. More of a personal project that may have little use to anyone else. Archbox does however show what can be done with archiso scripts.

Comments and suggestions welcome

Re: Archbox minimal live iso

Hi Mr Green, Can you create a live iso which contains the popular archlinux community contributions like ranger, dwb, lyvi, luakit, uzbl etc. (there are many.....................) . it would be great to see all the community contributions in one iso. (of course, you can include only stable snapshots of them as they are still in heavy development).


Using Openbox + Tint2 + Idesk

Re: Archbox minimal live iso

Sorry I thought I had put link in....added

As for adding applications I would say open a terminal and install them, if you really need them to carry around then use settings found on archiso site [for persistence]

Do have to add a README for keyboard shortcuts at some point, currently gmrun and dmenu are installed but as I do not use them day to day they may be next to go.
