Building the ISO
Perform the following steps to install the packages on Ubuntu:

If you encounter an error for LOCALE when you run these commands, then export the following variables in the terminal:
export LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8" export LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
Make the ISO. The example below assumes that you checked out the workspace under
cd $HOME/workspaces/photon sudo make iso
This command first builds all RPMs corresponding to the SPEC files in your Photon repository and then builds a bootable ISO containing those RPMs.
The RPMs thus built are stored under
stage/RPMS/ directory within the repository, using the following directory hierarchy:
$HOME/workspaces/photon/stage/: ├──RPMS/: ├──noarch/*.noarch.rpm [Architecture-independent RPMs] ├──x86_64/*.x86_64.rpm [RPMs built for the x86-64 architecture] ├──aarch64/*.aarch64.rpm [RPMs built for the aarch64 (ARM64) architecture]
The ISO is created at
