This repository uses submodules. To get all the pieces of this repository you can run the following code after cloning in the root directory of this repository:



The core dataset can be viewed and tooled to your wish and desire with command setupTermuxArch bloom which should download all the components of TermuxArch into directory HOME/TermuxArchBloom in the Termux HOME directory. The command setupTermuxArch bloom is much like the command setupTermuxArch manual; The bloom option is more expansive than setupTermuxArch manual which is primarily used for mirror selection, and can be used to tune the PRoot init statement. Bloom is a much more verbose option in that it provides the CLI user the entire code dataset. Please feel free to use the commands setupTermuxArch h[e[lp]] for additional information how to use setupTermuxArch.

Files setupTermuxArch.{bash,sh} are held for backward compatibility; Please reference file setupTermuxArch as the chosen install file if aid and assistance be through sharing insight about this Arch Linux in a Termux PRoot QEMU container project which can be used on a smartphone, smartTV, tablet, wearable and more. File setupTermuxArch is earmarked as the install file name for this project.

File setupTermuxArch downloads as files setupTermuxArch.[bin,\ \(1\),\ \(2\),etc...]’ through Internet browsers into Android Downloads on smartphone and Arch Linux in Termux PRoot QEMU can be installed directly from this file in Android with this command bash ~/storage/downloads/setupTermuxArch and similar which may also check whether there is a newer version automatically since the time it was downloaded. If there is a newer version, this file will self update. If this updating process went smoothly, this file will restart the process that was initially initiated by the user.

These files setupTermuxArch[.{bash,sh}] will NOT selfupdate to the most recent version published if they are used inside their git repository; You can use commands git pull && git submodule update --init --remote --recursive and pullTermuxArchMods.bash to update to the newest version published.

Very many hardy thank yous to contributors who are helping and have worked very hard to make this open source resource better! Please accept a wholehearted THANK YOU for using our open source product!
