# Arch Linux ARM Image Builder
# Licensed under the GPLv2.
# This script builds an Arch Linux ARM distribution/image.
# First, it downloads and installs packages to the workingdir,
# then configures some basics, sets the root password to "root",
# and then creates a rootts.tar.gz and/or a UBI image, ready to flash.
# Usage: ./distro-builder workingdir
# NOTE: This script is interactive.
# Agree to installing packages and answer "y" to cleaning the Pacman database.
# ==== Variables to set ====
INSTALLEDPKGS="base kernel26 kernel26-headers file heimdal ntfs-3g openssh openssl"
# ==== The Process ====
