Revision as of 18:36, 27 October 2014 by imported>Aaditya (→‎add build-set)


manjaro-tools is a replacement for devtools. It consists of two componenets, the devtools and arch-install-scripts, but manjarobuild and its symlinks got replaced by build-set.


manjaro-tools can be configured via editing /etc/manjaro-tools/manjaro-tools.conf


These are the new names for renamed scripts.

  • mkmanjaroroot --> mkchroot
  • manjarobuild --> build-set
  • pacstrap --> basestrap
  • genfstab --> fstabgen
  • arch-chroot --> manjaro-chroot
  • make-set



build-set features building from build lists as well as single packages. Build lists can be defined in /etc/manjaro-tools/sets/<buildlistname>.set

To create a build list, one can run in the pkgbuilds/abs dir:

sudo make-set -c <name>

This will create a build list containing all directories with PKGBUILDs in them. This generated list can be then edited, like packages can be removed.

For example, in a git clone of

$ ls 
consolekit                  manjaro-openrc         openrc-net
eudev                       manjaro-tools          packages
eudev-systemdcompat         networkmanager-openrc  polkit-consolekit
kde-servicemenus-pkg-tools  openrc-aur   
keyboardctl-openrc          openrc-base            sddm-consolekit
kf5-servicemenus-pkg-tools  openrc-desktop         sysvinit
lib32-eudev                 openrc-devel           upower-pm-utils
lib32-eudev-systemdcompat   openrc-misc

Running sudo make-set -c openrc does

$ sudo make-set -c openrc
