I need help making a new Arch install ISO

I have posted a couple of messages, but as yet no one seems to have responded, probably because they have not read them.

I need help building a new ISO for Arch, to take account of dmraid.

I can and have built ones that get so far, and clearly I am not that far away.

All I need help with now is getting at the contents of the initial ramdisk (/isolinux/initrd.img) so I can make a new one with modifications, and if anyone can help, I need a hand working out how to use the kernel26.img that I will end up with on a system.

Any help appreaciated.


Kind regards

Re: I need help making a new Arch install ISO

As far as I know this will be included in the next ISO release. I solved it by manually bringing the dmraid package to the install and wrote a guide on installing your root system on dmraid. However when the system crashes I have the slight inconvenience of having to install dmraid and manually mount the sets to do a recovery. I guess this is the part you want to get rid of aswell. I decided to wait until the next holy ISO.
