My Arch Linux install script

Posted on Aug 29, 2020

I just published my Arch Linux install script on GitHub.

Here is a link to the raw script. You can also use the following commands to download the script from within the live medium:

curl -O https://max.pm/install.sh
chmod +x install.sh

Run using ./install.sh. Make sure to select the right disk; if you’re unsure, press Ctrl+C to abort. There is no warranty and incorrect entries might corrupt your data.

It is LVM2 on LUKS under UEFI, with an ext4 root, the hardened kernel and NetworkManager. So, all the good stuff! Feel free to fork and comment.

You will be prompted for all the important settings, but you don’t need to copy and paste any code. Just run the script and be happy! This should make the deployment of robust Arch machines with full disk encryption much simpler.

There is also a detached signature of the above install script. My OpenPGP key is here.
