MX Linux Tools

This aimed at Hoas, just lurking over at debian user forums, im not a member and spotted this thread.

http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=146083

Just wanted to ask if this would suitable for devuan and have you tried it with devuan?

Its interesting that steve pusser said they test on pure debian which is a good idea.

MX-19 and Devuan beowulf should be binary-compatible but the Devuan developers do not recommend adding "foreign" sources so if you're going to try it then be sure to make a full system backup beforehand and please report any problems here.

No, I have not. MX's "helper" GUIs do not interest me at all and Devuan has refractasnapshot so the MX-snapshot tool is somewhat superfluous.

Re: MX Linux Tools

Would be an interesting experiment on a devuan base install. I might have to give it a try on a non critical installation.
