The build script for the pkglocal packages uses pacman's '--needed' option, resulting in not reinstalling packages already installed from arch repositories with the same name.

This will be fixed in the next release of archuseriso.

As a workaround you can patch the current script by removing pacman's '--needed' option. Patch illustration for the kde plasma script :

Hello, this version working with 5.5.x kernels yet, but problem with 5.6rc1 kernel. :( If you edit the PKGBUILD of linux-mainline 5.6.rc1 and rename it to linux, after compiled pkg name will linux-5.6.rc1*zst. When you move it pkglocal directory, this config install it to actual build, but not booting. :(

No for a successful build, yes to prevent bugs.

Thank you, done without error now. - Is 'set -e -u' an absolute necessity ?

Building with the verbose option "-v" reports: error: target not found: sfdisk

cfdisk, fdisk and sfdisk are part of util-linux which is included in your packages-extra.x86_64, remove the line sfdisk.

I tried out and it works for me. Which package names made the script to fail ?

waitnsea commented on 2019-11-21 10:45

Bug happens when adding package names to /usr/share/archiso/configs/kde/packages-extra.x86_64 - keeping the original file without change let building work fine as usual

When running this new version building stops once "work" dir is made and does'nt create "out" dir anymore
