About this Image
This is a minimal Arch Linux image, based upon the
official base image, without any additional packages installed.
Unfortunately, the official base image is not very well maintained when it comes to regular updates to improve overall
security. At the time of this writing, it was last updated in April, 2014, which is one year and two months ago.
This image adds the following improvements to this:
- Mirrorlist is updated using reflector. The tool is removed
afterwards to keep the image clean.
- It's an automated build, triggered daily to make sure latest updates are always available without any manual
- A full system update is installed. Orphaned packages are removed (as described in
System maintenance wiki site, regarding
Remove orphaned packages).
- Pacman database is optimized.
- GPG keys are refreshed.
