[SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

I have not received any package updates for ascii in quite some time - at least 2 weeks but probably more. Before that there was a steady parade of updates. Does anyone else notice this? Have repos changed? I haven't messed with my sources.list at all.

TIA for any insight...

Re: [SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

Well, if things are not sorted out yet in ceres why would there be an ascii update?

If I break in ceres you will be the first to know, I promise.

Re: [SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

KatolaZ over on the IRC channel said that -security and -updates have not yet been merged in Ascii (I guess since Stretch became stable), but should be soon. Meanwhile, Ascii is very solid for me (using MATE)...

Re: [SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

Don't have much of a feel for this project yet. Along this same subject I wonder how much hands on is required to make a debian release into a devuan release? Has most the heavy lifting been done now that Devuan1.0 is here?

Re: [SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

I may be too new to help you, and I started with a clean install side by side to a debian install.
Get a list of your needed software, copy your home into the same name and user id in the fresh
installation, and run them and compare for yourself.
I have pulled and stretched this thing in all ways, it is not braking yet.  I jumped from jessie
(boring) to ascii (equally boring) and now to ceres.  The only problem I experienced was with
the availability of my browser that will not upgrade in ceres, but the same problem exists in sid.

I don't think I am going back, other than from quriocity to see how things are evolving in
contrast with devuan.  I am so happy with it I can feel what people feel getting out of "jail".

I remember seeing in the devuan page a document of trying it your way.

PS  Wait until you try the refractasnapshot to backup your system and create a live
iso out of your system as well.  It is 4 clicks away.  It was science and research in debian
to do the same.  And I never wanted to do a dissertation in live image production.
This is like cheating on Debian with her sexier funnier twin sister!

Somewhere on here is a howto on just that subject. A simple search ought to find it, or poke around in Documentation or DIY...

Not sure we are talking about the same thing. Here's my question in another way:


* What steps do the Devuan maintainers take to create it from Debian?
* What is involved in those steps?
* How much is automated and how much requires hands on?

A comment above mentions that ascii has not yet merged -security or -updates. So from that I conclude that it's not automated and so that's why I ask "How much work is involved?".

Maybe we are talking about the same thing but I don't understand your reply if that's the case and especially not the DIY suggestion.
If I could DIY I wouldn't need Devuan, right?

DIY is a subforum of this forum that has tips on how to do things. Like convert a Stretch installation into Ascii, or such matters.

As far as creating the entire Devuan system of releases and repos and whatnot, yes, I misunderstood you question. Golinux has given most of the answer. You should go hang out at the IRC channel, ask, and receive. This is not the thread for that question :-)

@golinux thanks for that, and I am glad to see that things are active.

@sgage good to know about DIY subforum. I don't use IRC. Is there a IRC log that's searchable?

It's at:

Install hexchat or something and chime in if you have a specific question. A lot of info happens on the IRC channel...

Re: [SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

Puzzled and confused  about gvfs (virtual file system processes)

I noticed those tasks running and wondered what they do.  I did not find much of an explanation so I looked through the dependencies and dependants.
They must have come through the installed xfce that was on the live system I used to install Devuan.  Lots of mate cinnamon and xfce dependants, very few items I ever use (engrampa, evince, pcmanfm..) So I used synaptic to see what would come off when uninstalled.

There are 7 of these gvfs pkgs and only the gvfs---bin is not installed, all have plenty of dependants.  When I tried to uninstall only those 6pkgs were on the list to be uprooted.  None of their dependants.  Meaning??  They have alternative dependencies and gvfs is there as a helper?

Re: [SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

'apt-get remove' - packages that were automatically installed with the named package will be set to 'autoremove'. Run 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

'aptitude remove' - packages that were automatically installed with the named package will also be removed.

'apt-remove' - I don't know what it will do.

Re: [SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

this is after I lock down qupzilla and libqupzilla1 so they will not fly away since they don't exist in ceres?

Re: [SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

I flushed xfce and then flushed all the gvfs and wondered if it will reboot

Obviously it riding on clean air now ...

Re: [SOLVED]Package updates in ascii?

continued ...
I use pcmanfm in openbox and the only difference is that mountable volumes through the fm vanished.
I guess the gvfs process provide thunar with this ability (mounting and umounting volumes and drives, permanent and temp) and pcmanfm uses
that ability but does not have it on its own.  So in order to have this thunar must also be installed, or it came along back with gvfs.

Gui crap!  Now I understand what virtual file system means.

Sorry I didn't see this earlier. Yep, gvfs does a lot of mounting duty, adds a lot of functionality to Openbox especially.

That was a good day's worth of work, time to trim nails and play some guitar
Tomorrow will be another day in the system fixing world ... at some point the perfect system
may become ready for some real work.
It is like wood working, it takes a day of messing with metal tools before you even
