installing Devuan on Samsung Chromebook Pro

I'd like to replace ChromeOS with Devuan.  However, Gallium seems to be based on xubuntu, and as far as i can tell xubuntu is still using the dreaded system-d.

From what i've read, it's possible to get ChromeOS to drop into Legacy-Boot mode, but using the actual device i haven't been able to get into that mode.

I'm not sure if i've been looking at obsolete web-pages, or if i've been misunderstanding something.

Any clues might help, tia.

I put AntiX (systemd free) onto my Toshiba chromebook, (2GB ram/16GB eMMC), I used mrchromebox's boot replacement software.

AntiX - https://antixlinux.com/

Once you have upgraded the boot loader, you should be able to load any distro that you choose. smile
