With the **Manjaro-Architect ISO** we now offer an additional alternative install media, featuring the console-based net-installer **Manjaro-Architect v0.8.13**.
Originally a private experiment of team member** @Chrysostomus**, this project started out as a fork of the Archlinux installer **Architect**, with the focus on some rather advanced and exotic cases of installation that would not be met by our regular ISOs.
But soon the endevour found a lot of attention in the Manjaro community and with joined efforts and intense development for more than six months the new terminal-installer has grown to a powerful tool for advanced and intermediate users, gaining more and more popularity.
**What is this?**
The Manjaro-Architect ISO is a small download of less than 500MB and comes without a graphical environment but uses a Terminal User Interface to download and install all the necessary and desired packages to the target in their latest available versions, which seems ideal for a rolling release distribution.
Also this kind of installation offers practically unlimited flexibility: It can either reproduce any of Manjaro's available official or Community supported editions, or the installer can be used to setup a custom system, individually configured by choosing any Desktop Environment or Window Manager. The preferred kernels and drivers can be selected manually or alternatively **Manjaro Hardware Detection** is availble for automatic driver installation.
Manjaro-Architect supports init systems **systemd** or **openrc**, **disk encryption** and a variety of filesystems, including **LVM** and **btrfs**.
A **tutorial** for installation with Manjaro-Architect can be found on our [Forum]
kind regards, Bernhard Landauer and the Manjaro Development Team
