Re: Make Devuan Ceres ISO

There's also live-sdk.

EDIT: and Debian's live-build but I haven't been able to make that work with sysvinit as PID1. Of course that could just be because I'm useless big_smile

I build all the images of gnuinos using the live-sdk. But why Ceres and not Chimaera? Ok... One could say that unstable branch is less subject to change compared to testing. Anyway, the point is that I compile both debian-installer and syslinux from source and It would seem, though, that they need some workaround in chimaera/ceres. For instance, in chimaera syslinux requires a patch pulled from ceres in order to build with gcc-10:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=957858

not to mention some missing builddeps like python-is-python2 | python-is-python3.

But still, if people are willing to get images of Ceres, I can build them continuing on the subject of the mailing list I opened time ago, and named "Devuan Drafts" (or something similar?)

Re: Make Devuan Ceres ISO

Done:

https://www.gnuinos.org/Devuan%20Drafts/

The image contains three extra packages non existent in devuan:

  • libnetaid: shared library for simple-netaid

  • snetaid: daemon for simple-netaid

  • simple-netaid-cdk: ncurses interface for simple-netaid

One clarification: shortly simple-netaid will be compatible with both ifupdown and ifupdown2 (an alternative for ifupdown written in python and including some additional features), but it breaks with ifupdown2 so far because, even being their commands very similar, some arguments differ from eachother. In the case of simple-netaid, this breaking is due to the differences between the arguments used for the ifquery command.

The desktop environment is xfce, and you don't need any password during live sessions.
