PeppermintOS now Debian base & soon Devuan based

For those who care about such things...

A formerUbuntu distro is about to offer both Debian and soon Devuan based releases.

PeppermintOS is expanding and building on Devuan (no-systemd), as well.

Re: PeppermintOS now Debian base & soon Devuan based

Ive not ever tried peppermint but i will be sure to do so once they adopt Devuan.

Interesting they are going semi rolling, so does this mean a similar distro in operation to say mx linux?

Re: PeppermintOS now Debian base & soon Devuan based

No it seems to 'offer' (time will tell) a bit more fluid 'rolling approach'. From what little I have read, they have a number of repos stages (stable, test, unstable) with pinning involved. For example, yesterday I went a bit 'off the reservation' and installed 5.16rc as my kernel, all with just a minor tweak. 

It is a nice distro and will be much better once Devuan is the base (IMHO). From what I understand they are already in the process of removing some of the systemd dependant 'stuff' from their distro (like snaps, etc...). btw. they are looking (on matrix.org) for experienced Devuan users to help with their testing, etc.

To obtain a root shell use su -. Using just su will result in "command not found" messages.
