Does building on another Arch based distro apply the distro's partition scheme and filesystem format?

Of course I'm looking for a quick and simple solution without having to implement from scratch the partition scheme. Personally I like Garuda's btrfs partition scheme and it's integration with Snapper along with the various performance tweaks. Which is the why to my question.

I do not like the bloat with scheming and package selection. Garuda's bare-bones is a KDE based solution which is also bloated IMHO.

I am not sure what to respond...

Not really understanding your goal.

But Arch is Arch.

We have 40 ways to install Arch Linux.

All it boils down to is ... how much time do you have.

It is all possible - the tools are out there - the videos are out there.

If I use arco, the calamares installer gives me a default partition scheme of ext4. The Garuda partition scheme is btrfs with a snapper defined sub volume layout.

The question is: when I run alci on garuda does the partition layout of btrfs as defined by Garuda get installed on the iso? Or does it revert to the traditional partitioning options like the arco iso?

Sorry for the confusion

You have to learn Calamares.

Set the scheme your way

and use that

Never tried if you can do it manually in Calamares - might be possible.
