I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Veni, vidi, vici vdevuaned. I came, I saw, I Devuaned. wink

Re: Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 Stable LTS is here!!!

Much anticipated release of Devuan 1.0, know everyone using Devuan is quite thrilled as I am!

Have kept a Devuan alpha install, update and occasionally changing /etc/apt files and sources.list but upgraded to the final release without an issue. Smooth sailing from the beginning, very nice indeed!

Thanks to all involved  for their determination to make this Devuan systemd-free distribution a reality.  Devuan is totally awesome! cool

Cheers

How long is LTS? 5 years from now, or until Debian Stretch comes out?

Wow. MAJOR SECURITY FLAW where for at least one boot choice anyone can just Ctrl-Alt-Fn to another terminal session .... that is already logged in. Yep. Choice of each/any of all six of 'em, all conveniently pre-logged in.

You must be looking at one of the live isos. Autologin to desktop and console has been a standard debian-live feature for as long as I've been using it. (since Lenny). I think the reasoning behind it is that if you are running a live session, then you are probably sitting at the computer and will shut down the session and take your live media with you when you are finished. Autologin gets disabled for the installed system unless you change the defaults in the installer.

Note that on a regular installation, if you ctrl-alt-Fn to console and login and don't log out, that login will still be accessible even if you go back to desktop and lock the screen. This is not new and not unique to devuan. I first discovered it on debian.

Jessie would move to Stretch, so in a way, Devuan Jessie should move to Ascii. Otherwise, we'd be sort of left behind, don't you think so?

The Debian Jessie I run the same way (HDD installed live-boot) presents a login prompt upon Ctrl-Alt-Fn.

I prefer booting using filesystem.squashfs as that's read only and compressed, so faster (changes are also written to ram rather than disk so runs quicker on that front also). When updates are apparent I extract the sfs and boot as though a full install, apply the updates and reform a new/modified sfs. i.e. between such updates it boots the exact same every time (read only, but I have /home set as persistent (stored on another partition) so that diary, user config, browser ...etc changes are preserved across sessions).

... Just tried a fresh install of Debian standard (command line only), stripped that down to required only packages, installed live-boot (was already from a live-boot iso but that got stripped out as part of my purge script), jwm, pcmanfm, wicd as the DE and booting that 200MB filesystem.squashfs has ctrl-alt-fn present login prompts at all consoles.

Re: Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 Stable LTS is here!!!

@rufwoof:
You're right that there's no console autologin in debian-live jessie. That's a new thing for jessie, and I don't know if it was intended that way or a consequence of deprecating live-build. Lack of autologin doesn't add much in the way of security, since the login and password are public knowledge.

The console autologin is enabled in /lib/live/config/0160-sysvinit.

sed -i -e "s|^\([^:]*:[^:]*:[^:]*\):.*getty.*\<\(ttyS\?[0-9]*\).*$|\1:/bin/login -f ${LIVE_USERNAME} </dev/\2 >/dev/\2 2>\&1|" /etc/initta

Since you're modifying the images, you can do it however you need. You could remove live-config or modify the script or create a hook script to disable the sed line.

Re: Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 Stable LTS is here!!!

Congratulations!

I've used systemd-based distros since switching to GNU/Linux (Arch Linux and Debian 8). Before Devuan, I was only able to write an init service file after hours of research and many head-against-wall impacts.

Being a big fan of the UNIX philosophy and KISS principle, I ditched the other distros and switched to Devuan since it's been in beta. Not only have I never had any issues, Devuan Jessie actually boots faster on my machine than Debian Jessie (I love the irony in that).

Because my init system is no longer an alien, yesterday I wrote my first SysVinit service file after only a few minutes of research. I find SysVinit to be quite elegant and transparent, and am very happy that shell scripting skills do not suddenly become irrelevant when I venture into the bowels of my system. 

I'm really enjoying the combination of a) the greater control SysVinit allows me to exert over my machine and b) the power and convenience of Debian's package management tools and vast repository. Thank you, Devuan.

Thanks for that pointer fsmithred. As I'm using a HDD installed live session (and different userids/passwords than the defaults) that is useful info. Thanks again.

Re: Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 Stable LTS is here!!!

Congrats to the entire team!

I just did a net install of 1.0 Stable amd64 today on my brother's computer replacing Xubuntu 12.04 (wow!) i386.  Install was,as expected, smooth as silk (I've done plenty of Debian installations over the years).  Perhaps for ASCII the installer can sport the purpy theme.  wink

Good work all around.
