You can build an image with or without using checkpoints. With checkpoints, the build process is completed in stages. This section describes the two ways you can build an image.
$ distro_const build manifest.xml
If necessary, include the path when specifying the manifest.
$ distro_const build -l manifest.xml Checkpoint Resumable Description -------------- --------- ------------- transfer-ips-install X Transfer package contents from IPS set-ips-attributes X Set post-installation IPS attributes pre-pkg-img-mod X Pre-package image modification ba-init X Boot archive initialization ba-config X Boot archive configuration ba-arch X Boot archive archiving pkg-img-mod Package image area modifications create-iso ISO image creation create-usb USB image creation
In this sample command output, an X in the resumable field indicates that you can restart the build from this checkpoint.
The following command starts building an image and pauses the build before ba-arch modifies the image area:
$ distro_const build -p ba-arch manifest.xml
You can only resume from the checkpoint at which the build process stopped or from an earlier checkpoint. You cannot skip to resume the build at a later checkpoint.
The following command resumes building the image at the ba-arch stage.
$ distro_const build -r ba-arch manifest.xml
The build output displays the location of log files.
