Re: Add more packages to base iso

well you would have to regenerate the current.db.tar.gz as well and you would have to then repack the base iso and reburn it.

it would be easier to do an ftp install.

Re: Add more packages to base iso

burn them to a new CD as files

install the base-iso

load the system

mount the CD

pacman -U packagefile-someversion.pkg.tar.gz will install it

but it is easier to just say pacman -S packagename and catch it from the internet, as sarah31 said
