Search engines always return debian when I search for devaun

I have even tried using -debian with my devuan searches. This is very frustrating.

Double quote the search term: "devuan".

But anyway most Debian results will also apply to Devuan and Devuan won't have as much exposure on the interweb because it's so new.

And use the -debian operator also.

I sometimes do the opposite and search for debian when I want devuan, because there's a better chance of getting useful hits on a lot of topics.

You have to ask the right question to get the answer you want.  Many ways to skin a cat, as they say.  smile  I use -ubuntu a LOT!  LOL!
