Re: List of Devuan derivatives

Good grief.   Get a grip.  You are not the oracle of truth to anyone but yourself which is an audience of one.  Do you not have any place else to troll?

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

mckaygerhard is it nice on the planet you're from? Planet troll maybe.

That "dead" MIYO just made another release, about 6 months since the last one.
That's more frequent than other "dead" distros like Ubuntu Mint and Debian.

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.

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

There is also "MiyoLinux" - https://sourceforge.net/projects/miyolinux/ which is based on Devuan Testing/Beowulf.  That is what I am running right now with XFCE desktop. The new release 2-1-2020.

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

Refracta is just too damn good to pass up. I heard of Devuan back in January 2018 via Distrochooser (I wanted a Debian-based distro that respected me, and Devuan was ranked on top) and tried it from time to time, but could never get a feel for it. ASCII was just not that pleasant, due to metapackage inconsistencies.

Things finally took a sharp turn for the better with Beowulf, but I still felt that something was missing. That's when I decided to go with one off the list, and Refracta looked to be the most attractive derivative of them all. Right off the bat, it just worked for me. I liked that GUI text editors such as Geany were included, and rather than PulseAudio bullshit for sound, I got ALSA, which has NEVER failed on me, no matter what hardware problems were experienced.

I personally believe that Refracta is what the main Devuan should have been more like, since I just don't like Poettering shitware of any kind. Regardless, any of those derivatives will still take you straight to Devuan. It's a much looser distinction than, say, GNU/Linux Mint and Ubuntu (since they are both alike and unalike for different reasons).

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

Not sure if this belongs here as it's not a derivative, strictly speaking, but Nitrux uses Devuan's repositories and has OpenRC as the service manager & PID1 (/sbin/openrc-init) so I thought it might be of interest to some.

I've only tried it in the live environment but it looks interesting, DistroWatch has a full review this week.

Unfortunately they're using pkgmaster.devuan.org in their sources but I've been on their Glitter chat room and told them about deb.devuan.org so hopefully they will change that before they bring down the main servers.
