Manjaro install from another running linux?

I am looking for a method to install Manjaro via an already booted system to a separately mounted space. I do this with Arch all the time, how is it I can’t find a method for Manjaro?


AFAIK Manjaro is just Archi with some extra packages. The Arch method that you’ve used before should work perfectly well with Manjaro.

So apparently the only way to find it is searching explicitly for manjaro-bootstrap. Sheesh

And the script is out of date, repos now use zstd compression and the script is not setup to deal with it.

edit - Oh hell, 5yrs out of date… all kinds of not working stuff.

I guess you could install Arch and convert it to Manjaro from there, or you could hop on to Manjaro IRC and work with them to update that script.

Oh, I got it working. Then I found TeArch Linux / Applications and Tools / archstrap · GitLab

Did you look at the Arch Wiki? I am sure that it would have worked fine, just replacing names with Manjaro specific packages.
