#1 Hardware & System Configuration » NetworkManager connects to wireless but does not resolve » 2018-07-20 19:16:44

Replies: 1


When I installed Devuan ASCII, I configured my wireless network using the expert installer. While NetworkManger does connect, I have no actual Internet connection (can't ping).

I have to issue the following command to actually get it to work:

$ sudo dhclient wlan0

Only then /etc/resolv.conf is populated.

It's only a minor annoyance but I'd like to know how Devuan actually configures the network during installation so I can properly fix this.

I'd prefer to keep using NetworkManager rather than setting managing the network via /etc/network/interfaces (which apart from the loopback device has no entries).

Note that my system has network-manager 1.6.2 installed.


#2 Devuan » Which direction for OpenRC on Devuan? » 2018-07-19 22:11:50

Hi all,

Aspiring sysadmin here and new Devuan user. Running ASCII as my daily driver after having used Debian Stretch for a while. I've used Linux on the desktop for years, mostly using RPM-based distros.

I'm very happy with Devuan because I basically get Debian without systemd. And it's a great way for me to familiarize myself with a traditional Linux environment while still having the power of Debian at my fingertips! In fact, I have a copy of the Debian Admin's Handbook on my desk as I write this. wink

That said, I was wondering where the Devuan project intends to take OpenRC. I'm far from an expert on the inner workings of the various init systems but from what I gather it seems that OpenRC may well become a contender to both systemd and SysV.

So here's my question: will OpenRC be adopted as the default init in future Devuan releases while still allowing SysV as an option, perhaps along with, say, runit?
