How to get a colibri
We are going to describe how to go from a minimal standard installation to a complete remasterable system using addaura scripts.
This procedure work on Arch rolling, Debian (buster, bullseye, bookworm), Devuan (chimaera and daedalus) and Ubuntu (bionic, focal and jammy).
I started with latest version of archiso:
archinstall to get a minimal installation. On
Disk configuration choose
Use a best-effort default configuration layout, then
ext4, as you prefer.
Among the packages I added:
lsb-release, others packages will be installed later by
At this point, we MUST configure network, I just choose the most basic:
Copy ISO configuration to installation.
Finally select install and wait it finish. Archinstall will propose you to chroot to continue configuration, answer no and reboot.
On Debian and Devuan we start with a common netinst, without install nothing except
standard system utilies
When the installation finish, reboot the system.
After reboot, we now must install
sudo. Log on your installed system, and:
apt install git sudo
/usr/sbin/adduser artisan sudo
We can now logout, and we are ready to the next step.
The procedure its about the same on Devuan.
On Ubuntu, we install with the server edition, again without install nothing except the minimal base. Here, at the end of installation I use to remove package
cloud-init we are not interested on.
After reboot, we need just to install
git to be ready:
sudo apt install git.
Get and run addaura (all)
git clone https://github.com/pieroproietti/addaura
That will happen
eggs will be installed and configured properly for the chosen distribution.
addaura.sh will install few packages
wget and will add AUR repository to pacman.conf.
Then will install penguins-eggs.
Debian/Devuan and Ubuntu
addaura.sh will install new
penguins-eggs, then will install eggs and its dependencies.
Get wardrobe and wear a costume (all)
Once eggs was installed, I proceeded to load the wardrobe and "dress" the system with the colibri costume.
eggs wardrobe get
sudo eggs wardrobe wear colibriAt this point after rebooting, I found myself in the colibri graphical system.
We can install calamares with the command:
sudo eggs calamares --install.
After that, we can clean cached packages with command:
sudo eggs tools clean.
Remastering our custom system
Well, we are ready to remaster the system, just a little reconfiguration and cleaning before:
sudo eggs dad -d
sudo eggs tools clean
sudo eggs produce --max --addons adapt
That's all folks!
