Installing refracted Ascii w OpenBox Eudev no DM

http://distro.ibiblio.org/refracta/file … 3_2222.iso

I had tried this before months ago, when it first came out, and never got X to work.  Eventually I gave up.
Today after some tries I figured it was missing x-serv xdg-i9xx-intel crappyware and it runs like a charm

Then @fsmithred said: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=6265#p6265

Silly me, I thought xserver-xorg-video-all was a metapackage for all the xserver-xorg-video-* packages, but the version in ascii and beyond only adds six of them. Thanks for the heads-up on that. I will add xserver-xorg-video-intel to my package list for refracta. (It's a recommends, so it will be present in the devuan-live builds without adding it to the list.)

So I added some sauce, LXDM as a DM, and snapped Linux4.13 from ceres

Thank you refracta, I really like this.  It made Devuan a happy boot again.

Re: Installing refracted Ascii w OpenBox Eudev no DM

Be aware that the version of eudev in that iso has an epoch of 220 in the version. When eudev gets into the main repo (and even when it gets back into experimental again) it will have either no epoch or an epoch of 1. To get any updates, you'll need to do some package manager contortions to downgrade to the newer version with the lower number. I don't have exact instruction, because I haven't tried it yet. If you want some moral support when you decide to do that, look me up in irc (#devuan or #devuan-dev on freenode).

Isn't eudev directly replaceable with udev in the other Devuan rep's?
So if one was to remove it and install udev then go back and install eudev, the only one in the repository will install, right?

Yes, that will work. The part about getting back to udev might be tricky. I'm pretty sure you have to force a downgrade by telling apt which version to install. (apt-get install somepackage=1.2.3)
