Build Status

Arch-boxes provides automated builds of the Arch Linux releases for different providers and post-processors. Check the providers or post-processor sections if you want to know which are currently supported.

Dependencies

You'll need the following dependencies:

  • packer (for basic usage)
  • vagrant (for vagrant images)
  • qemu (for libvirt provider support)
  • virtualbox (for virtualbox support)
  • VMware Workstation Pro (for vmware support)

How to start the build process

On Arch Linux:

packer-io build vagrant.json

On any other System:

packer build vagrant.json

Note: this is because of the name conflict with the AUR-Helpertool packer on Arch linux.

providers

  • virtualbox-iso
  • qemu/libvirt
  • vmware-iso

post-processors

  • vagrant

Troubleshooting

Parallel build fails

If the parallel build fails this is mostly because the KVM device is already occupied by a different provider. You can use the build option parallel=false for building the images in a queue instead of parallel. But don't be surprised that that the build process will take longer. Any other option is to disable KVM support for all other providers except one.

Start packer with -parallel=false:

On Arch Linux:

packer-io build -parallel=false vagrant.json

On any other system:

packer build -parallel=false vagrant.json
