A setup wizard for ArchLinux using Qt and compatible with EGLFS.
- Compatible with EGLFS:
- Does not require X11 or Wayland to run.
- Lazy scriptable setup:
- At one point you'll be presented to an editable bash script containing all the instructions that will be used during setup.
- The same happens for network connections and partitioning.
- No package will be installed without your consent.
pacman -S qt5-base qt5-quickcontrols2 libinput libxkbcommon qmltermwidget
How to build?
pacman -S qt5-tools cd chaotic-installer-qt qmake -makefile -project chaotic-installer.pro make lrelease chaotic-installer.pro
How to run without X/Wayland?
Open a TTY without an open graphical session (
Ctrl+Alt+F3 should do it):
export QT_QPA_PLATFORM='eglfs' ./bin/chaotic-installer
What it looks like?
Is it related to Chaotic-AUR repository?
Both projects are maintained by the same Pedro, and you'll find a ready to burn ISO with Chaotic Installer available in Chaotic-AUR (soon). But, this installer doesn't include Chaotic-AUR, any of its packages, and won't offer to add it.
