Haven't been here for a long time... :rolleyes:
Like the title suggests, is it possible to include specific files and packages in a live CD installer of Arch linux. And is it also possible to download specific packages when Arch Linux starts up using pacman?

More specifically, the Chromium Web Browser and the git command.
And a shell script from my repository

I REALLY NEED TO LEARN LINUX PROPERLY

Ehm, you can write a script that's executed at every start that installs the packagrws you want using pacman, and pacman can also install applications from packages which are stored locally.

Thank you, Peer. But can I embed it into an iso file of Arch Linux, going through the files and add commands without installing and doing it on a machine?

Three things you may want to take a look at if you are building your own .iso. This is Manjaro specific but I think much of it would also apply to Arch.
