Mageia + ALCASAR (Mageiar) ISO builder


The goal is to create a minimalist ISO image to install both Mageia and Alcasar with all its dependencies.

How it works

The script lists the RPMs installed on a running ALCASAR in order to download them from Internet repository.
Then, it downloads the RPM need to create an ISO file.
Once the ISO is done, one can boot on it and install the OS normally. The ALCASAR archive is copied in /root folder

What it needs

The Mageia ISO image and ALCASAR archive are to be placed in the `ressources` directory before running the script.

How to use

        Usage :

What can be done

The ISO image seems to be already as light as it can be. With all the necessary packages, it weighs around 800Mo.

Here is a list of interesting functionnalities:
- if a needed RPM has not been updated, copy it from the Mageia iso file instead of download it from repository
- Use DrakX to install and configure Alcasar graphically
- Propose an automatic partition table suitable for Alcasar
