Is It safe to use linux libre on devuan ascii or devuan jessie?

https://jxself.org/linux-libre/

is where I would download the linux libre kernel.

It works on trisquel and debian so I wondered if it works on devuan as well...

Discussion here: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=606  Why not download from here https://linux-libre.fsfla.org/  ?  Be careful with third party repos . . .

(Don't all those links lead to the same repo?)
Would the latest of each LTS series make excellent starting points in searching for hardware?

Not quite there are other repos. I use jxself.org because it is good for debian based ones, including devuan and trisquel.

personally I would love to see trisquel have no systemd just like devuan  (trisquel 8 is based off of ubuntu 16.04 which has systemd.)

So I guess the better way to put it is, to remain systemd-free.
