Google Compute Engine Image (Arch Linux)

I was creating/playing around images of linux instances in google compute engine recently. I found that most distribution has a public community support (redhat, centos, suse, debian, ubuntu) but NOT arch. I successfully created an arch linux (version 4.14.10) image that can run in compute engine. I was wondering if arch community willingly support maintaining arch images for GCE. I also want to actively maintain this images. The image I created was uploaded at:  https://console.cloud.google.com/storage/arch_linux/ .I use minimal installation packages included: base base-devel openssh. Image creation was made following the standard procedure set by Google Cloud.

Re: Google Compute Engine Image (Arch Linux)

Hi, thanks for sharing! I've been looking for this recently too, the only thing I found is an unmaintained build script by a Google employee:
https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/ … ge-builder

I like the idea of scripting the build (so we can tinker with settings, the Arch way wink -- fixing and pull requesting that might be a good place to contribute?

Re: Google Compute Engine Image (Arch Linux)

if you ssh using default browser:

[user@arch]$ sudo -i

then change your root password OR

[user@arch]$ sudo passwd root
