=== Finishing Touches ===
{{note|Here's where you'd do the part I said was iffy and won't be necessary once my PR is merged. You'll need an Arch Linux or Manjaro system. If it's not an aarch64 system, you'll also need <tt>qemu-user-static</tt>.
First, get [https://fratti.ch/quartz64/alarm-kernels/linux-aarch64-rc-5.18.rc6-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.zst the linux-aarch64-rc package I patched and built], then copy it somewhere into your mounted root.
Alternatively, patch and build the package yourself by [https://github.com/CounterPillow/PKGBUILDs/commit/622e03ba3753f823ea903bdbbf59c2f400dd2334 using my forked package sources].
Next, <code>arch-chroot</code> into the mounted root:
<code># arch-chroot /mnt/alarm-root</code>
and install the package
<code># pacman -U linux-aarch64-rc-5.18.rc6-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.zst</code>
Then <code>exit</code> the chroot again once it's done installing.
}}


Once done, unmount the partitions:
