Re: Beowulf 3.0.0 is here!

thanks to all involved for the great work.

I was using ascii (2.1) After including the beowulf repositories in sources.list and running

suo apt-get update

I ran

sudo apt-get upgrade

everything went smoothly.
I want to work for a few days before I run

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Will it be correct to claim that I am now running beowulf, or am I still on ascii.

Re: Beowulf 3.0.0 is here!

Hi

You are on ascii-stein (as in Frrankenstein the monster). Almost no new features are being installed. Only packages that requires no new dependencies or removals are being updated. But if it stable at the moment wait until you feel ready to finish the upgrade. Good luck with your upgrade

Have a nice day

Re: Beowulf 3.0.0 is here!

Note that the Debian buster release notes advise to use

# apt full-upgrade

to upgrade from stretch so that should probably also be used for ASCII.

Reference: https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/ … ng.en.html

EDIT: your system will be far less reliable if you've just added the beowulf sources and used apt-get upgrade.

Pretty good review too, brings up some minor details like runit and the installer but overall pretty decent.

Edit: interesting tidbit Jessie brought up in regards to the difference in the live installation and the install media, apparently the live installer which is refracta-installer gains 20% percent more resource usage over the devuan/debian installer? Perhaps refracta is picking up more resources than it needs to in some instances?

I saw that, and I don't know what's causing it. The live does have some extra packages and some of those have scripts in /etc/init.d, but I don't see anything running in 'ps ax' such as live-boot or haveged. Maybe the difference is due to the desktop-live having gvfs-backends installed. I don't have two clean installs to compare right now, and I'm kinda burned out on installing.  Will have to remember to look at this later.

Re: Beowulf 3.0.0 is here!

Ok i did some installs today.

one netinstall and one minimal live install on bare metal partitions multibooting.

Not much difference in the two in my opinion, slightly higher ram for refracta not much though only 5mb.

So uptime of 1 minute from bootup refracta install had 91 mb and netinstall had 86.

cpu usage was nominal on both same with processes at around 130 for both.

I did notice brltty was running as a top process on the refracta install and not on the netinstall, could this be a performance hit?

Edit: ill keep them installed for awhile if there is anything specific you would like to see fsmithred.

HevyDevy, thanks for checking that. If you have ps_mem.py, I'd like to see the output.

Edit: the netinstall was as basic an install as you can get, just standard system utils and  nothing else under sysV as init on both. Looks like refracta installer is a bit better at user desired input like sudo, elogind-daemon and acpid etc, i suppose that is from what the live session uses as the install media for both live and netinstall differ a great deal in size. Still i dont see much of any resource hogging on either installs, but that is just my experience.

Until when, ASCII will be supported?
When is the time limit, for upgrading to stable?

Re: Beowulf 3.0.0 is here!

Through Refracta, this is the Devuan that I was looking for. I can leave my previous daily distro behind and not feel bad at all about hating on Poetteringware now. wink

Many thanks to all the great developers, testers, and support community for getting us this far.
