• Devuan?

    From Jeff Smith@1:282/1031 to All on Thu Aug 15 19:41:48 2019
    Hello There,

    Has anyone tried installing and using the new Devuan distro of Linux?

    My first install of Devuan is finishing up as I type. I was going to install and test the new version of FreeBSD but it had install issues regarding the Grub boot loader.

    Hey Jeff,

    I installed Devuan Ascii a couple weeks ago but haven't used it much yet. I joined
    a few of their IRC channels and learning a little bit here and there.

    I've seen that a few people are upgrading from Ascii to Beowulf, although it hasn't been released yet. I'm not sure how stable it is yet.. I know they're planning to do an Ascii point release soon.

    Seems that Ascii uses merged packages from Debian 9, and Beowolf uses merged packages from Debian 10 (which is plain to see on their home page).
